The latest chipsets are ridiculously sensitive; I've got a BT gps unit with a MTK chipset and it blows my older SirfStarII out of the water! Decent locks indoors, in pockets, etc. That said, it has a decent antenna; any GPS unit with an antenna small enough to fit inside the Z is going to suffer badly.
Better to use a BT GPS, I reckon; lower battery drain on the Z, and you can use it with the Pandora once it ships
Ah, I see. So it might work if you soldered a larger antenna on an ran it around the Z's internals?
My SirfStarIII works really well (outside/in the car, at least, and I have no other GPSs to compare it to, other than the N810's infamously lousy one, but I digress...). It's also USB, and doesn't need proprietary drivers (just a pl2303 module), so my Pandora is going to be set as well.
