My understanding from a quick read of the datasheet was that the 
function of these pins could be set/changed by config of the GPSMODE 
lines, or through s/w initialisation after boot.  It's always possible 
I've miss-understood this of course. :-)

It also strikes me that the datasheet seems intended for the device 
including the ublox firmware, so it would be weird for them to include 
the alternate uses if they don't apply to use with that firmware.  
Though after the fun with the 2442 docs, this wouldn't be too surprising!

Werner: What would you expect to see on these pins?
