Hello all. I seem to have scrapped my spot-meter project cause I am getting a Digital SLR (yes, some of us actually still shoot film
), that and I have a work related opportunity to develop something custom. Plus I'd rather be shooting pictures than building something helping me to shoot pictures - thanks Graynomad
I have always wondered ever since I got my Garmin Garmap 60 what affects the accuracy of the unit, and what affects the speed of satellite acquisition. Comparing the Garmap 60 to the Garmap 60CSx, the CSx acquaries the satellites in a fraction of the time it takes my standard 60 to acquire satellites. Now I have read somewhere there is something about a "cold acquisition" time...almost like cold starts with auto engines.
Hence the questions, what affects the speed of satellite acquisition for a GPS module - and here I also presume it depends on the type or power of GPS antenna?
Also what affects the accuracy of said GPS antenna?
I want to build a GPS breadcrumb logging unit, that allows for a reference number to be entered where a coordinate "mark" is placed. Much like most GPS units only it wont really have a mapping screen, only a LCD or OLED screen of reference number entering purposes.
Thanks a million.
