The GPS performance of my Freerunner is also much worse than
the GPS performance of my neo1973. I've done side-by-side tests of the
two units many times. My neo1973 gets a good fix in 2 to 3 minutes
after a completely cold start; it's very reliable. My Freerunner
initially was getting a fix after 7 or 8 minutes. For the last few
days it has not been able to get a fix at all.
