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 ..
