Funny that, the push button on the Globalsat 338 was a plus in my mind as 
it can't accedently be left switched on as there is an automatic 10-minute 
shutoff.  No need to see the leds as LS will work when its switched on and 
if its not working the receiver is obviously switched off or has a flat 

I've also had an opportunity to test the Royaltek 2110 along side the 
Globalsat 338  and the difference was negligible though admitedly 

That's the cool thing about choice and preferences - they make the world 
go round!

Best regards,
