* 1 second acquisition
* only50 mW power consumption
* Galileo-ready

I don't know how they manage one second acquisition, but if that's
really true, it will allow for some really low powered devices as it
will allow the GPS to be turned off in between beacons.

Then there are their "old" modules - hi!
