[OSM-talk] GPS receiver orientation

Random question: does the orientation of a GPS receiver make any 
difference? If I hold my BGT-11 vertically, will it find it harder to 
get and keep a lock than if I hold it horizontally? Also, does it make 
it slower to get a lock if I walk along while it's trying?

I don't know the chipset, if that makes a difference - I think it may be 
SirfStar II. The wiki would know (I'm offline as I type).
