You Can Put a Working GPS Radio Inside Your Viewsonic G-Tablet


We’re not sure how popular this device is amongst the masses, but if any of you who bought it were annoyed by the lack of GPS radios inside, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Well, that’s if you’re a hardware engineer with some rad soldering skills. The guy who did it was even nice enough to whip up a parts list and some instructions. After looking at the list myself, I cowered in fear – it’s pretty semi-hardcore stuff. If you’ve got the technical knowhow and the ballz, head on over to XDA and get started. [Engadget]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  2. I’ve been following this project on XDA… My hat is off to the two developers that accomplished this. It wasn’t easy because they didn’t have a schematic to follow or a parts list… They did this from scratch!
