+yooper_gps Posted December 7, 2002 Share Posted December 7, 2002 I was able to get my hands on two of these to do a side-by-side test. They were both new - right out of the box. Interesting things I saw: 1. One unit booted up with an initial position somewhere out in the area of China. The other one I got booted up in the U.S.. 2. I did some very careful testing to compare sensitivity. The one the booted up in the U.S. ended up being noticeably more sensitive than the other - in identical situations, it would find 1-3 more satellite fixes and would have stronger fix bars on the satellite display page. 3. The one that booted up in the U.S. has a louder beeper. I kept the more sensitive one, and it works really well. (BTW, the one I kept was b ought via the Internet from a place that I'm guessing moves a lot of these units out the door - the other was bought from a local place that may not move too many. Both were the same software version.) Just thought I'd pass this along for comment. I'm especially interested in the differences in where the units booted up. Thanks, Doug Quote Link to comment
