it's the brand name probably. every gps uses one of just a few chipsets to
receive the signal. if it doesn't use sirf iii, check out the reviews and
see how it compares.

the ways a bt gps can differentiate is by offering logging, a small package,
decent battery, or convenient charging connection.

fwiw, no one has confirmed it but it may be that the wintec wbt 201 will
need some more reverse engineering to get track downloads working from
