Sigh. Broadcom acquired Global Locate. However, for whichever reasons,
GTA02 will have a different GPS chip. On the IRC channel, I heard that
the new chip/vendor is more co-operative with free software, at least.

Have I missed something by the way and has gllin for GTA01, OpenMoko
2007.2 been released yet? Since we have a Broadcom guy here, Ken, you
know what the deal is with that?
