uBlox LEA-6H is "Glonass-ready", as well as "Galileo-ready". ;) I.e.
maybe, sometime, they will release firmware that is capable to use
Glonass signals. Current firmware is GPS-only, AFAIK.

I have samples of almost all GPS/GLONASS modules that is available
today and tested it (for navigation purposes only, of course, had no
time to check 1PPS signal). Not bad, of course, especially in northern
Russia. By the way, at least 3 manufacturers offer modules with same
footprint (and almost the same pinout) as current uBlox modules (TIM
and LEA).

Best regards,
