I've GPS onboard.

I've done a fresh install but the only software missing is the GPS related ( Skyhook + Dell Location Utility).
I'm looking for it, but in factory image, DELL web site, internet, whatever I can't find it.
I've download software from HP but It's looked to run only on HP.
any hint ? modded driver ?

IS there anyway you can provide the model of your gps module. It would give us better insight to where to looks. Also it may assist us in where to find that part?

My Duo is less than a month old. Is there any way to tell without opening up the machine whether or not I have the 710?
Thanks in advance
Marty

If you're not going to use the GPS for driving around, I find the Geosense Sensor download very accruate:

Geosense for Windows

I checked, under sensors it says Skyhook Wireless XPS Location Sensor. Is this it? OR where do I look?

I did check my service code on Dell's website and it said it came with:
1DRH12Module, Software, Service Charge, GPS-DW710, Inspiron, Dell Americas OrganizationMarty
