    They are MODEL CF-VDR302U. I have seen them as much as $500. I know that's pie in the sky money. What's a fair price? New in box.

    Thanks, if that is all I can get, I will just keep them for whatever nonsense I come up with.

    Can I take a gps receiver off of an older CF19FDLC3CM and put it on my newer CF-19RDRAG6M?

    So what exactly are you trying to do here??? Your computer already has Dual Touch on it. If that isn't currently working, well the recovery DVD should get it working. Or are you trying to use this as a second monitor?

    (edit* Nevermind, I just saw the date...)

    Another possible option for GPS on the CF-19 is to go fully custom. The WWAN card fits into a pci slot or something similar. I picked up a chinese adapter card on eBay that converts this to something else (sata maybe?), and also gives you another USB output. Or something along those lines. I forget the specifics as it has been several years since I have opened it up. But the card cost me something cheap like $2-5. And it gives you clean access to internal USB.

    Also there are ublok gps cards that easily fit into the WWAN slot, cheap. I remember paying something like $7 for mine. And there are also better options out there. Point being if your not using the WWAN slot, it can be easily used for GPS.

    I took one off my old MK1 and put it in my MK5. Not the best but it does the trick

    "not the best ..."
    yeah , that is what i (have) discovered on/with my '19 .
    i have been kicking the idea around of using a taoglas antenna in conjunction with a ublox module .
    it is a combination that is hard to beat .
