Here is an announcement from Sendero. Perhaps someone want to try the 
mentioned receiver with LS and report about the results after that.

>         Introducing the IBlue 66 channel GPS receiver. The Holux M1000 has 
> been an excellent high sensitivity GPS receiver but we are always looking 
> for just a little more performance. In particular, we have been testing 
> receivers in urban settings looking for less multi-path impact from 
> bouncing satellite signals.
>
> On a test course among the high-rises of San Francisco, the IBlue was on 
> the correct street 78% of the time and the Holux M1000 54% of the time.
>
> You can imagine how good the IBlue heading consistency is in normal 
> outdoor environments. We have been testing it along with other receivers 
> for several months using a variety of test situations.
>
> The sensitivity rating on the IBlue is slightly better at minus 165 DBM 
> versus minus 159 on the M1000.
>
> The IBlue battery lasts 32 hours versus 18 for the M1000.
>
> The on-off switch is a bit more distinct on the IBlue. The two receivers 
> look almost exactly the same physically. We did design a new case for the 
> IBlue because its charging port is on the opposite side from the on-off 
> switch.
>
> The IBlue does an amazing job of picking up from within a pocket or purse 
> and especially next to tall buildings. The higher sensitivity helps speed 
> up the satellite acquisition time.
>
> Enjoy the state of the art in GPS reception. Order an IBlue with case from 
> Sendero for $129 or if you are ordering something else, like an upgrade or 
> other product, pay just $99.
