Comment(by Ainulindale):

 Never had a fix on my balcony, whereas my own external GPS device works
 pretty well there.

 I had a fix once in a clear open space outside, managed to keep it for 30
 meters, sat, walked again, and it lost all the satellites, and it never
 did come up again. It's unfortunately the only fix I managed to get in 4
 days, even 8 hours outside on a table didn't give any results (whereas the
 other GPS had a fix in 1 minute).

 What is weird is that sometimes I don't have the NMEA unknown messages on
 the log, and I have to reboot the freerunner in order to be able to have
 them back.
