[Loadstone] Tools to drive receivers.

Well, I just tried it on my Holux GPSlim 236 which has the SIRF III chipset. 
It looks like I did something wrong and now my Holux is now disfunctional. I 
tried turning static navigation off resulting in my Holux being undetectable 
by any device. I tried connecting to it through my Nokia 6682 and it is able 
to connect but it will not report anything. I tried doing a factory reset by 
going through the actions>initialize source and selecting factory reset. 
That didn't seem to fix the issue.

I was wondering if you have any ideas in fixing this issue.
