    First off I really like this post. Your reason for using Linux is only slightly different from mine.
    One thing I might add is when I turn on a computer to use the GPS I don't need it to decide to update Windows. I may actually need the GPS for fire and/or rescue purposes........and if I need it I need it now!

    Here is my CF-53J with Gobi2000. Note it is NOT Xenial Xerus.

    Yes MX-16 can be a bit twitchy but I am using "MX Snapshot" USB sticks. IOW a iso written of a working system. Any tweaks I make are handed on to the next self created .iso.

    That's probably enough for now. :D Just needed to know about the MC5725....thinking of recommending it to staffyman.

    No, I never even tried to get GPS working with Gobi2000. I just wanted the WWAN part to work. I have Panasonic GPS device installed for GPS purposes.

    Do you have a picture of the 5725? I'm interested in getting one but want to confirm the numbers (IOW toughbook compatible)?

    Thanks,

    Jeff
