are you saying, that this is not possible right now?

I just bought a gta02 this week mainly for OSM and just _now_ because I'm heading
to the OSM conference in Limerick/Ireland next week.

right now I get _no_ fixup at all, having tried for many hours and evenings ;-(
looks like the "short antenna" detextion problem mentioned end of May.

my currect conclution of my GTA02: 

- GPS antenna broken, gps unusable
- no grapnics acceleration (no 3d, no video, almost no 2d) -- and no docs !!!
that's not what got "advertised" in several conference talks :-(
