  I don't know about speed, but I was concerned about the GPS18 locking
while facing the horizon (antenna 90 degrees from optimal) and spinning, so
I rigged up a little test.  I spun a GPS18 at about 120RPM (powered on the
GPS and started spinning immediately). It locked and maintained lock until
the impromptu test rig self destructed.
