Brent,

That's really interesting. It looks like one receiver is in GPS
hold mode (so you would expect the position to remain fixed)
and the other is in a normal 2D or 3D mode. Can you look at
the NMEA logs and tell which is which? Is this the same GPS
receiver I played with (leapsecond.com/pages/MG1613S)?

Thanks,
