Hi all,

We have tested and compared three GPS receivers:

- Royaltek RBT 2010 (SiRF3)
- Holux M1000 (MTK)
- QStarz BT Q818 (MTK)

The results of this test are now published at:

 From the article:

"From this test we have learned, that the position data as reported by all 
three receivers is adequate for accurate location announcements. The tests 
also show, that the algorithms used by the Loadstone software suffice for 
accurate heading and speed calculation. Our next step will be the 
implementation of the option to choose from announcements directly provided 
by the receiver or provided by the Loadstone software. With this option in 
place, the Loadstone GPS program will be able to work together with any 
receiver on the market today."

"At this moment we see no confirmation of the claimed superiority of the 
MTK chipset over the SiRF3 chipset. In fact, the Royaltek RBT2010 
outperforms the Holux M1000 by a small margin and the QStarz BT Q818 by a 
larger margin."
