GPS current consumption
M. Adam Davis email (remove spam text)
The GPS from liapac IIRC had a 'sleep' mode which allowed it to wake up
and get its first fix every 20 seconds or so. It might be enough for you.
You might want to tell your customer to wait a year though. Since cell
phones are getting GPS there are a lot more chip fabs that have single
chip low power gps designs in the works, some of them even including
much of the analog front end on the chip. These should be on the market
in a year, and should be cheap in five.
