I've seen lots of comments about units that will use other than GPS 
satellites, but I don't think I've seen any actual output from one of them.  
Is that just a gap in my toy collection or has reality not caught up with the 
marketing hype?  (Or perhaps I just haven't looked in the right place/time.)

Typical low cost GPS receivers send out NMEA which includes a list of 
satellite alt/az and SNR based on the SVN (satellite virtual number, or 
something like that).  How are the Galileo and other satellites going to show 
up in that?  Is there an official plan for something like 1dd for Galileo, 
2dd for Glasnost, and ...?

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
