    [​IMG]Is it possible to have both at once? The gps antenna is on a small board where the serial port would be.

    I want to get a serial port upgrade kit but i cannot find much info or even pictures of it.

    Update: Noticed the pictures you added on that thread, they were very helpful thanks!

    I'm still interested in acquiring a serial kit so if there is anyone here willing to sell me one or exchange it for a GPS kit or bridge battery kit send me a message!

    I used those before but the usb port on the fz-g1 is a bit tricky to use because of the cover, i have a feeling that over time it will get worn off or damaged.
