I know its an old machine but recently, one of our member on NBR refer a friend to me to do a wi-fi and Gps integration to his machine. He had three unit of CF-29STJ......which has all have 1.0Ghz cpu and with complete caddy and harddrive. In return, he just need one with all the mention stuff and I will keep the two as payment. All of this unit has max. out ram of 768Mb. Now! as you all know that all gps aftermarket installation on cf-28 uses a Rim Board or a daughterboard as we speak. I don't have those stuff. Instead I managed to installed it Using just a 40pin Flat cable ribbon soldered to a round cable to interface with EM408 module. Another thing is that I don't have a bump out casing or Sarantel antena to finished the job. What I have done is taking out one of the rubber bumper to a damaged traveling laugage bag which is ready to throw out on the landfill, Lol..Below is the pin out for those who are still interested on modding a cf-28 with EM408.

Using CN(A) 50pin connector on CF-28 toughbook


2.0(Ground)---------------------37GPS In,38-39
5.0(Vcc)------------------------40-41 ( you can short pin1 and pin5 of Em 408 and then connect to pin40-41 of CN(A)

here are the picture of the connected EM408 to CN(A) and the picture of Antena Casing. For your reference.
