Sometimes i think whether all the hardware revisions of FR are really
the same if people are having such a opposite experiences with GPS,
GSM.... (i know about the GPS cap issue). For most of the time i get a
fix quite quickly these days (2008.9), but had no problems even before
with 2008.8. There is the odd day, when i need to apply one or two
reboots for some strange reason. Today, no problem getting fix 2 times
(morning, evening) in about 2 minutes while driving about 90km/h. SD
in, 2008.9 running from it.
