Hmm, my results so far:
First run with external antenna on the roof: GPS time after about 15 Minutes,
TTFF 1599 seconds. Still, the position tangogps showed me was about 1 km off
from my real position, and kept changing (with 4 visible satellites).
Trying again now, after restarting agpsui, TTFF is only 55 secs, and now I see 6
satellites. Weird...
