I will also get my Wintec 201 this week. And, I do also have a QStarz BT 
Q818 and a G-Space GS-238. The last one uses a Sirf III chipset, the QStarz 
a MTK, and the Wintec uses the Atmel / u-blox ATR 0625.

I'll compaire the three units and will log the data and send it to Rob so 
they can see and check the logged information.
