I need to take back the wet blanket I threw over the idea of getting a 
freerunner :)

fyi, there is a software workaround for the hardware in the field and 
the next rev has the problem solved. A noisy clock signal in the sd slot 
interfered with gps reception. The software workaround was to disable 
the clock when not doing sd card i/o. That is a good idea anyway to save 
battery life.
