Both those were listed on garmin site as uk suppliers but the RS price
that came up was almost 170 quid and I couldn't locate the GPS-18x LVC
on the gpsw site.
I'll check both again anyway in case my eyesight was playing up.
I had an unreliable Conrad DCF-77 Rx working earlier in the week that
seemed to be giving around +/- 2ms with just the parse driver. I
wasn't expecting such good results due to periodic reception problems
and earlier having had no success at all with a Globalsat br304.
