I just received the following notice from Synergy Systems, LLC.

"June 14, 2005 Dear Synergy GPS Customers, Motorola has sold its GPS 
Products group to SiRF Technologies. Synergy Systems was unaware of this 
transaction until the attached press release was received June 2, 2005. 
On June 7th, 2005 we received a letter from Motorola stating that as 
result of the sale, Motorola has announced end of life (EOL) of all its 
GPS Products (i.e. modules, FS Oncore, antennas etc.). We have been 
conversing with both Motorola and SiRF to seek additional clarity for 
our customers, and below are the essentials: • Motorola is offering the 
opportunity to place last-time-buy orders, which must be received at 
Synergy Systems by July 8, 2005. Orders are subject to acceptance by 
Motorola (we are not clear in what case they would refuse the order). • 
Deliveries can be scheduled through December 2005. (Although Motorola 
has reserved the right to ship as soon as the product is available. 
Should this situation arise, Synergy will pass through the date 
changes). • Last-time-buy orders are non-cancelable and non-returnable. 
• Synergy recommends earliest scheduled delivery dates, as often in EOL 
situations, there are not enough components to meet everyone’s needs. 
While these events are very unfortunate and untimely, we are committed 
to support our customers by providing alternate solutions of equal or 
better value. We have GPS solutions available from Sony, in addition to 
many antenna solutions manufactured to our specifications, in stock, 
ready to go! Please contact our office at +1-858-566-0666 for further 
assistance, or refer to our web site, www.synergy-gps.com for up-to-date 
information. 9950 Scripps Lake Dr, Suite #106 • San Diego, CA 92131 •
