Jim, 

Not that I can tell. I am sure if that if you talked with the manufacture
that you guys might be able to come to some level of agreement. The cause
for the inusability at pedestrian speeds is a complete speculation on my
part, who knows it might not even have to do with static navigation.

Any indication if static navigation can be turned off?

I just received a report that although this GPS receiver may look excellent
on paper, it is terrible at pedestrian speeds. It might have static
navigation turned on or perhaps the vibration/motion sensors are freezing
the position when it goes into sleep.  

So, be sure to keep this in mind. 

Hope that no one ran out to purchase the receiver unit and do apologize for
being overly excited about a receiver that looked good on paper.

I have to agree, and the one other thing that sort of irritates me when I
read things like this is the relevant pricing this side (South Africa).

I basically paid ZAR1200 for my Holux M1000, which is equivalent to around
$180 or thereabouts, and it was basically the only 'useful' one I could find
this side since while most of the bluetooth units this side which come with
inaccessible software are also around that price, or even more, most of
those ones are as such limited to being used with their own stuff anyway.

Anyway, just my bit of a rant.

Stay well
