Why do you need 51 channels?

You need at most a half a dozen satellite fixes to determine location and speed. That's six channels.

Looks a bit iffy to me. Try getting a used Globalsat BT338 receiver - SirfStar 3 chipset, rapid time to first fix, never drops a fix (unless you're in a tunnel), runs for 18 hrs on one charge, and has a replaceable battery. Fits in your pocket, and will work from the glovebox of your car.

Those are the things that matter practically, not zillions of channels. And yes - it couples to my N95 8Gb no problem.

This might be a variant of the well-documented "Holox" (note different spelling) scam. Be wary.
