A week ago someone mentioned he did it, and he was actually pleased with the performance of it. I just cannot quickly find the post.

There are already two threads on the subject somewhere in the forum. One of them isn't so successful. I have tickets to go out to a concert tonight so I don't have time to search for them.

I see 2 threads about internal GPS mounting:

TBeats has already participated in this one.

This one is aimed more at a specific GPS type but we haven't yet heard how it worked out.

I'm new to this forum I was reading some of the posts about installing a GPS device in a netbook or notebook computer. At this time they can track cell phones, why can't notebook/netbook manufacturers install the same device in the systems. I'm not sure if its done via GSM or not.
