Well, I bought the thing. Works fine with my E71 phone, and I thought it 
didn't with the N810 but then it started working when I changed the GPS 
settings in the control menu (as opposed to in maemo mapper). The 
passcode for pairing seems to be 1234 but it's not documented.

I'm not sure about power drain - I'm not sure the internal chip is really 
turned off (the icon is on). It's certainly more sensitive and faster to 
acquire than the builtin.
