My mate has just brought a CF-51 and chucked one of these in and it works a dream!!!!

I've thrown it in my CF-19, installed the drivers and the 3G works brilliantly, nice and fast Download and Upload

However the GPS doesn't seem to work when I use Memory Map :(, it's installed correctly as COM16 and when I pull up that port in HyperTerminal it shows a load of GPS raw data flying through by the looks of things :S

I've set the settings in Memory Map as follows;

Manufacturer - NMEA
Port - COM16
Baud Rate - 4800

What am I doing wrong? Do I need to tweak my dip switches?

Please help guys I'm desperate for Internal GPS and 3G on my Toughbook :(

Depending on what it spits out, Franson GPSGate is a great little program to translate protocols, baud rates and share GPS through various virtual COM ports. You can use a Garmin GPS on an NMEA-only reading program, or the other way around too.

I use it to share GPS stream to Delorme Atlas and GRLevel3.
