I think what he means, is that even though there is enough signal
strength to provide a quick(er) First Fix, (or ANY fix at all in some
cases) that if you are hammering the card for map data, the noise
generated by the clock/data lines may cause reception errors resulting
in a less-than-accurate position fix being maintained.

I would take this to mean that your current location drifts from the
actual spot to places not quite where you are standing.

I have yet to get enough $ together to buy a Freerunner myself, so I
can't test/report on this, but hopefully I can clarify :)
