Loadstone doesn't really care about the update rate. There really wouldn't 
be much advantage to a faster update rate, in fact it would just make the 
phone work harder and use more battery power. The software heading and speed 
should only be used with receivers that have been shown to have a problem. 
This would be any receiver with static navigation switched on like some of 
the earlier receivers using the mtk chipset.
