Has anyone experienced a failure of the the 8-pin connector that's internal to the Lassen IQ GPS Module? I broken a couple of them, hey seem more fragile than I'd expect.

Are you soldering the mounting tabs on the case to your PC board? That should keep the connector from experiencing too much stress.

Yep -- soldering the tabs down to the board -- still seeing a fair number of failures. I'm going to start potting that connector w/ epoxy.
