@Jörg and Angus: thanks for your efforts !

I would like to ask OM why are almost no resources assigned to this problem 
and instead they are focussing on GTA03 or 04 or whatever without fixing the 
problem and possibly re-rising the buzz-issue in GTA03.

I was very pleased how fast and good the GPS-issue was handled. Compared to 
this i'm a bit disappointed and feel left alone by OM because I (and many 
others) have a broken (by design) piece of hardware and the vendor doesn't 
care too much :-(

@Jörg: where does your european lab sits? Does it help that i send you my FR 
with my german sim-card and the buzz-issue ?
