mess with them, but this time when I got the unit out of storage the
same thing happened, only worse.
I wired in external GPS receivers (Garmin GPS18) and all the GPS
problems went away.
Problem is with the GPS, and it's systemic (4 units with same
problem). Still no idea if it's the GPS, the supplied amplified patch
antenna, or what. I just know the device is usable with an external
GPS on it.
I guess I'll desolder something so the onboard GPS isn't consuming
power, and go with this config until they are damaged or lost.
