-1. It's a meaningless category.

ANyone searching for GPS info will go directly to GPS. The fact that GPS 
is inside of the hardware container will not help them in any way.

As someone else (Minh?) pointed out, our hardware and software is too 
closely tied. E.g. the recent problem with GPS that required the 
capacitor and/or turning off the SD clock. Hardware or software? Where 
would you go to search for that? I know I'd search on GPS, not hardware 
or software.
