Silly me. I thought I only needed to install the CR1220 if I wanted the RTC to continue to operate while the power was off. Apparently, the battery has to be installed for the GPS to operate. The GPS sensitivity seems really good. The DRAWS pulled in 10 satellites within a minute of powering up and had my position and altitude exactly right. In the same location, my ID-51p2 takes significantly longer.
