GPGGA has one added benefit: If you turn on clockstats you get a log of
the current position every second, this is perfect input for a
statistical averaging of the current antenna position. :-)
Afair you also get quite a bit of position/time quality information, in
the number of currently tracked sats and the current DOP value.
Otherwise they are pretty much equivalent.
