no burden whats so ever. i just set it and forget it.
if you want to modify or string log files all you need to is open the
log file in any text editor and copy paste delete what have you.

quality and accuracy are surprisingly good from what i have seen. only
thing that messes me up are large concrete buildings or high rises in
downtown areas.
if you have an OSM account take a look at my gpstraces. all done with
the openmoko and tangoGPS
