I noticed that even after I turn on my cambridge and let it acquire

Dennis are you hitting save after you make a change to the GPS
input. If you dont save the changes it reverts to what you had last
time you turned it on. Goto Menu/change GPS Input/Menu/save/
then turn it off and turn it back on. Doug

I do want the secondary if the primary fails after say 10 seconds but I also want it to switch back when the primary becomes available.

Can i do that?

Mine switches back and forth with no issues. If the nano is on and has a good GPS signal the Oudie picks up the Nano. If I unplug the nano, it reverts to internal GPS and when I plug the nano back into the "system", it goes back to the nano.

That is exactly how my Oudie 2 functions.
Automatic switching.
