Anyone can tell me about the GPS?

2008-10-17, 0:07 AM

I install the GPS software of ThinkVantage, but it told me there is no GPS hardware??

and install using the script will install the software, but when running it, it appears "can not communicate with com port".

 

My W500 model is 4058 CTO, and anyone can tell me how to configure the GPS?

Solved! See the solution

I am using the same model of W500.

I am not sure whether this model has integrated GPS chipset.

I cannot find any devices about GPS in equipment manager.

Hello Whitebob,

 

yes your are right! Please look here, it seems that a sim card must be in the card reader.

Also think of the hardware switch.
