If your GPS receiver is based on SiRFStar III (SiRFStar 3) chipset, then 
SiRFDemo software might be useful. The "Demo" in its name might be 
confusing - it is the name of the software - NOT the demo version (as you 
might think).

You can download it from here:
Manual in PDF is also available.

It is useful for checking, and changeing all the parameters of your SiRFStar 
III based GPS receiver. A specially turning off the so called "static 
navigation" (SN).  It is recommended to turn the SN off for pedestrian use 
of the GPS receiver.

Do you have a SiRFStar III chipset based GPS receiver?

Example SiRFStar III receivers:
Nokia LD-3W
G-Space GSR 238
Globalsat BT 359

The hints on the following forum may help as Quick Start for SiRFDemo and 
using it to turn off static navigation.
