Summary, Chip Sets, Modules, Boxes, PCMCIA, CF, Assisted GPS, Non-GPS Location Methods,


Summary:
Most popular chip set - SiRF.
Smallest modules - SyChip GPS2020, 13x15x3.8; Trimble M-Loc MPM, 25x25x6.5 and Fastrax iTRAX02, 26x26x6.5.
Smallest module with integrated antenna - Axiom Swift A1, 41x41x11.
External boxes available with integrated antennas or separate and with USB or RS-232 interfaces.
Available as both PCMCIA and Compact Flash cards.
Bright idea - Axiom/Airbiquity, GPS built-in to 1.4Ah standard Li-Ion cell phone battery.
