I thought the new chip was Antaris 5, and the footprint was the same, but part of the message structure was different?

Hi all,

I want to let the group know that I've found a Taiwanese source of
Antaris 4 based gps modules that are significantly less expensive that
those made by u-blox. They're probably not suited for individual orders
because there are over $75 in transaction fees (wire transfer fees,
minimums, shipping) but if I purchase 25 or so they will enable me to
offer a very competitive price for pre-assembled Tiny 2.11 boards.

However, there is a catch. The new module uses a slightly different
footprint than the LEA-4P (its smaller) and so the PCB needs to be
modified very slightly. Unfortunately, I do not have access to Protel
and therefore cannot make this modification myself. Will one of the
ENAC guys step up to the plate to make this simple change and help us
out? If so, I think I can offer the new GPS modules to the list for
about $50 each. I can provide all the necessary documentation to make
the change. The modification will consist of drawing a new footprint
and re-routing a few GPS traces.
