Works in my bit of central England. As noted elsewhere ttff is a bit slow, but
probably no worse than my Garmin Geko. Tracklogs from tangogps are no worse
than from the Garmin, probably better, and once it's got the fix it holds it
better than the Garmin. I'll try to test them side by side over the weekend.
I don't have an external antenna to compare.
