The SD/GPS issue was the one I really wanted to avoid.  I waited for 
many months to order my Neo, just so I could avoid that.  Guess I just 
need to start not believing anything I read on this list.  ;)

I've spent the last month trying out various distros and various SD 
cards, with varying amounts of agony.
Does anyone know of a list somewhere of distros that have the software 
fix and are *known* to work well booted from SD cards >2GB, with GPS 

...AND, if/when somebody succeeds in organizing a buzz fix party in 
California, is there any possibility of upgrading this v5 to v6 and then 
to v7?
