I, also, find the wiki to have a counter intuitive user interface and a 
rather steep learning curve.  I could learn it if I needed to use it 
every day but for once a year usage it's a little too much.

I am not an expert on the NMEA or Atom drivers either.  The GPS receiver 
   I have happens to be a Motorola Oncore so that's the only one I'm 
really familiar with.  My comments were based on general knowledge and a 
quick glance at the C code for the NMEA driver.
