A number of poeple have a SiRFStar III based GPS mouse but use Linux and so, are unable to run the included GPSInformation utility. With the use of Portmon from SysInternals, I have been able find out what commands you need to enable WAAS/EGNOS, etc..

These all follow the standard NMEA format witht he checksum and CR LF on the end of the sentance (after the asterisk)

WAAS/EGNOS

Enable:

$PSRF151,01*0F

Disable:

$PSRF151,00*0E

with sirfmon (part of the gpsd package) you can activate WAAS mode using the binary sequence:

s 85 01
send command
85 
DGPS Source
01 
SBAS

Power saving

Enable:

$PSRF150,0,300,1000,1*10

Disable:

$PSRF150,0,1000,1000,0*23
