    Is there an easy way to get the 7455 to output it's gps in a way that windows location services will use. Specifically for Microsoft maps? I like the thought of having it for GPS navigation.

    I think there was some kind of glitch with location services enablement. I used a sensor explorer and it would come up as disabled. I just wiped windows and reinstalled from scratch and it's working now.

    Also found that Panasonic has a driver to interface com port nmea outputs to a windows sensor and virtual com port. its they have it as gssd and i think its available for mk3 or 4 fz-g1's

    it also works on the cf-31 and id gather possibly all nmea com gps's.

    Thanks Nick!

    GPS Serial Sensor Driver from FZ-G1 MK3 downloads worked with FZ-G1 MK1, But not with CF-31 MK4.

    Did you get an error message? you can try and extract it out of the self packaged installer using 7zip and try installing it with the files in the win7 and win10 folders it creates.

    Thanks again Nick!

    Extracting and installing from extracted folder worked great! Now MS Maps shows me at my house, not at my neighbor's house.
