Bummer that it was not discovered sooner, though. I really have to
ask this question: did the hardware rev's of GTA02 get tested with SD
card + GPS together? If not, then can the test procedures please be
reviewed to accommodate testing peripheral configurations that are not
'obviously' tied to each other? Simultaneous testing of GPS+SD seems
like a no-brainer, however with the discovery that Glamo, for example,
and SD, cannot be used together productively, and now GPS+SD not being
usable together, this indicates some test issues on the hardware
revision pipeline that need to be addressed ..
