More to the point, without decoupling the autocorrelation component of 
positioning, averaging will not result in a statistically satisfactory 
value.  In other words, it really doesn't get better with a larger 
sample unless your sample is, well, infinitely large.

Reducing teh sampling rate to, e.g., 1 min between each sample should be 
sufficient to remove the autocorrelation component for most users of 
code-phase operation.

Geodetically yours,
