SySOn GPS CF plus III

Postby Herbert » Fri Jul 18, 2014 16:32

Hello at all

I saw a picture (on Flickr) of an UX with a GPS-Module in the CF Slot. First I thought that this was an original accessoire but the Vaio GPS Module was an external device with Bluetooth. I googled the Name "SysOn" and found the "GPS CF plus III" module in mint condition for only a few euros.
Here are a few unpack pictures and test screenshots:
The original package

In the box:

The GPS Receiver:

I copied the drivers from the CD onto an USB Stick. Look, the drivers are "brand new" :p

In the "Device Manager" the SysOn GPS is indicated as a COM-Port:

To test the GPS Device I installed "MapFactor" on the UX and downloaded the OSM map for Austria

And it works:

And this is, how the UX looks like:

But there is one Thing: I am wondering, if there are newer drivers available. The manufacturers wbsite is offline but the page is still available in the "WayBackMachine"
SysOn Chip WayBackMachine Website
But I can not find Downloads for the GPS CF plus III module. For the Version II I can find divers there.

Have you ever used your UX with a GPS module?

Best regards
Herbert

Hey Herbert,

I have only used USB and Bluetooth based GPS with my UX. I think those drivers are ONLY a COM port driver that enables communications between your system and the GPS. Newer drivers will not do much to the functionality nor capability of the GPS, so I seriously doubt there will be a newer driver for your unit.

Anyways, good find! We need more posts like yours to keep this site fresh!
