what i meant by solid result is i cant decide which gps to select or which will be best for my project..project funds are limited to say Rs.10,000 which include GPS and some other things...so have to limit my GPS fund to Rs.5000 i.e approx $120.

another is that there arent much GPS modules available in India and after searching lot i just found one company named u-blox which provides GPS modules here.
so if i have to get some other company module i will have to decide on which module to get and then ask someone to get it frm else where...

i dont think garmin modules are avialable in India..there GPS units are avaialbe but not as modules
if you know any comapny which has got distributirs in India whose products you can recomend pls let me know

The SQ can output any combination of the following NMEA strings every second:
(details start on page 143 of the SQ datasheet)

GGA-GPS fix data
GLL- Geographic position
GSA- GPS DOP and active satellites
GSV- GPS satellites in view
RMC- Recommended minimum specific data
VTG- Track made good and ground speed
ZDA- Date and time

In order to simplify the use of the SQ, I developed a small interface PCB. The board connects the SQ through a .050 pitch connector to a more usable header with .1 inch centers. The board also provides backup power for the SQ?s battery-backed ram and provides 3.3volt regulation for the GPS receiver.
The preceding info is from the web page I pointed you to. You didn't even read it, did you.

About the U-BLOX GPS's, i can say that they are the best ive worked with so far.
The best TTFF, accuracy and comms.

The MS1 model is a good one, with a PLCC package.
