I found this and wanted to share it with you guys:
Someone on another forum (www.mikrokopter.de
) found out, that the LEA5H has problems with constant datarates, when receiving more than 8 satellites
(already turned off all extra stuff). He says the LEA4 chip performs much better and gives a constant update rate all the time.

As Jeremy pointed out on the wiki, they used the wrong antenna. A passive antenna would have been perfect, but they used the active.... Makes me wonder why? Possibly something wrong in the design, who knows. Great price though!AJ

Take a look at this:
It's a dream come true ;)
A GPS module with a Ublox 5H and a sarantel Geohelix.
The only issue might be the connector, but I guess the best thing to do would be to remove the flex cable and solder wires directly to the PCB.
What do you guys think?
