    I found out, actually by mistake when setting up another Toughbook, that the modem by default was installed on COM4, the port also being used by the GPS. Since the GPS was not active when the modem was installed, the modem assumed nothing was using that port and no conflicts were being reported.

    So, after applying the changes in the post above and checking to make sure the GPS is active and capturing a signal, uninstall the modem and then reinstall it. The new modem installation will create a COM7 for the modem and not interfere with the GPS.

    So, there it is. The solution to an age-old problem, the jumping mouse and GPS fix, that affect some users.

    The mouse jumping around had to do with the plugNplay causing the GPS to be enumerated as a serial mouse. I am not sure I follow how the modem sharing the same com port as GPS would relate to this issue?

    I tried those links and they didn't work for me either. Where did you find them? You do of course know that website isn't affiliated with notebookreview.com.

    I'm a little confused, too. You mention "WINCE".. That's Windows CE, right? I'm not sure how that would relate to a toughbook.

    You may want to do a virus scan if you clicked on those links, I am not saying they are a virus but they are links to executables and they seem a little phishy. A moderator may want to consider removing those just in case.

    I think a few of the things that DJAcid posted could be perceived as a virus by a virus scan but they weren't actually viruses...
