Thinkpad T410(2522) Gobi 2000 GPS " GPS enabler failed to start tracking"

This is bugging me now.


Ive got a T410 with a Gobi 2000 WWAN card and i want to try and get the GPS working.


Ive installed (in order and from lenovo site) 


The Qualcomm Gobi 2000 Wireless WAN Driver for Windows 7 1.1.250

Access connections version 6.01

Thinkpad Power Managment Driver

and the hotkey features 


And finaly ive installed the ThinkVantage GPS Enabler 2.81


Just for the record i can connect to the mobile boradband just fine. so the card is definatly enabled.


Yet when i launch the GPS enabler and try to start it , it just errors 


ThinkVantage GPS
GPS Enabler failed to start tracking. You need to check the following:
- the radio hardware switch is turned off.
- the device is still initializing after being powered off. Please wait for a few minutes.


Its trying to connect on COM8 which , in device manager is 


Qualcomm Gobi 2000 HS-USB NMEA 9205



Any ideas would be really helpfull , being a bit of a techy i really want to be able to satelite track my laptop!
