[time-nuts] Hand Held GPS

As I found, do be aware that the Synergy VIC-100 (58532A clone) does 
not like 3V.  Does anyone know if the 58532A fairs better?  However, 
my experience is that the Synergy Timing 3000 is better, even though 
it is also rated for 5V only.

I happen to have just bought a Garmin GPSmap 60CSx myself.  It is 
nice that it spits out NMEA-0183, though the serial string is not 
timed well to the internal 1PPS - delayed and jittery.  :-(

Thanks,

David
