I found those too. But also found many Motorola units that had what I
thought were better specs, and certainly better written user manuals.
I guess you could run the suplied software and then snoop on the
serial interface to figure out what commands the sure GPS accepts.
Can it be put into "position hold" mode for timing? Can it do self
survey? I paid $20 for am Oncore GPS that I think works better for
timing then this.
