The only GPS receiver that I have that does u-blox binary format is
the one in the Freerunner, and the others are Trimble and Garmin and
SiRF and NMEA. So I'd be limited to using only one receiver out of my
collection. Especially I'd love to be able to use the fancy Trimble
ProXH via bluetooth and not be forced to use the Windows Mobile device
they expect you to use. (Trimble Recon) So I was looking for a more
general solution.

But it's a starting point anyway, and hey, I work on this about 10
minutes a day so I'd say dive in!
