Hi all,

OK, I went and ordered the Sure GPS board, cables, box, hardware, etc.  
I even bought a cheapie soldering station for $ 20.  Other than the 
mechanical setup which I can figure out and the patches which David 
Taylor has documented, I need to know how to program the unit when it comes.

Specifically, can someone tell me how to:

* change the baud rate
* change which sentences are output
* change the update interval
* enable waas, if that matters for timing
* set fixed location mode, if available
* restore nav mode
* do a warm restart
* do a cold restart
* do a reset to factory defaults
* save the settings to flash or backup memory so I don't lose them when 
it's powered off
* if possible, output only the GPZDA sentence

* Any other magic you think I should know.

The manual seems to be missing most of these details.  As always, any 
help is appreciated.  Thanks in advance.




(PS - If you email me and don't get a quick response, don't be concerned.
I get about 300 emails per day from alternate energy mailing lists and
such.  I don't always see new messages very quickly.  If you need a
reply and have not heard from me in 1 - 2 weeks, send your message again.)
