Very good post, it will be a good reference point.

The Oncore VP (with Z firmware option) has carrier phase measurements. I
have seen only a Trak 8821 with a Oncore with carrier option. Later
Oncores8 models removed that feature. The Tbolt does not have the usual
carrier phase measruements, it uses an unusual doppler form to present
carrier phase. Actually it pseudorange is also unusual in giving range in
fractionals of 1ms.
