Thogh it does not make sense to have 66 channels or anything more than 12 for that matter, it seems that it helps in obtaining a position fix and with maintaining a quality gps signal. I am sure if someone took a GPS receiver with 12 channels and one with 66 channels that the one with 66 channels would perform much better.
Produced on a Nokia N82

Would be sort of difficult - as there are only 24 satellites plus
WAAS/EGNOS (afaik, cmiiw) in orbit... and the maximum you can receive is
about half of them. So I'm afraid 66 Channels is just some kind of
marketing and doesn't make any sense.
