Intersting,

Maybe it has been a long time since I looked at receivers. My company deals in using GPS location for appraisals and construction projects. Trying to use a mechanism to prevent construction fraud. Their recievers take about 3 to 5 minutes to get a fix. I was also on a E911 project once, they have a full time staff that does nothing but update map info. In fact for a while there it was an emerging career. Not having a location cert. (which you could build a good geolocation system)on file at the county is not an excuse. The biggest kick I get these days is looking at satelite pictures for changes in man made structures.

Yeah, exciting stuff. I just finished building a tablet pc with a gps and camera built into a single unit. 5 hr field time, sunlight viewable and includes streets & roads of the US plus the ability to overlay shape files and even assign current parcel numbers to the pictures you take using gps. OUr first one was $2k hardware/ $2k software. Now we are at about $1700 per setup out the door for our appraisers (I work for an advelorum (sp) appraisal company)
