    Hi,

    I've Panasonic CF-19 Mk1. Two weeks ago I intalled GPS kit (sony chip).
    On the first boot I activated GPS in BIOS utility and received "crazy mouse" effect in Windows 7. I deactivated ballpoint mouse in device manager and GPS worked correctly after that.
    X-port found NMEA data on COM3.

    I was travelling about a week with turnoff notebook and after turn on system didn't find GPS.

    Now x-port and hyper terminal doesn't show any data on COM3 and other COM ports (COM1 and COM2).
    I tried to delete all Com port in device manager, after that x-port give a message "Port Doesn't Exist".

    One more, there is no ballpoint device in device manager now.

    Please help me to fix problem. Thanks

    You should have applied the GPS patch instead of deactivating thru the device manager. Try to install the patch now. Remove all power for 10-15 seconds. Start the computer and enter setup (F2). Reset the bios to default. Check that the GPS is set to auto. Reboot and see if you have the "crazy mouse". Shut down and re-enter the setup. Disable the GPS and reboot. Run the GPS patch. Shutdown and re-enable the GPS in setup. Reboot and, hopefully, the GPS should work.

    Is this an aftermarket GPS device?

    You may need to reseat the cables to the GPS board. When I first installed the OEM GPS in my CF-19 the GPS was not recognized in the bios. I had to reseat the cables and then all was well.

    There is GPS option in BIOS, before I install GPS kit there was no such option in BIOS.
    I've tried to reinstall GPS plate and cable, no effect.

    Maybe it die (

    If you just got it 2 weeks ago, contact the seller and see if he'll warranty it.

    One more thing: when I disable GPS in BIOS, COM3 dissapears in device manager, so device is active but doesn't generate dataflow on COM3... :(
