Do you have figured out, which connectivity it use?
I mean SPI, USB or UART?

It will be very intersting for me because I search for one whch can be
connected directly to the 24bit RBGB interface of the microcntroller
through a switch.

It seems, most GPS modules are too expensive...
I use the Maxim MAX2769 Chip and it is connected through SPI to the
microcontoller and it just works!

Ehm, Mini-PCIe are for the mass-market and most On-Board Chips are more
or less professional use and have in 99% of all cases more performance.

I think I have to experiment withit because my TabletPC shoud be Water-
and Dust-Proof. Maybe I integrate the TouchScreen into the topcover
of the TabetPC.
The problem is, to find the right one for the Display...

The biggets one are arround 19" (like my AUO TFT Display)

I do not even know the physical size of the iPad. :-D
Apple won't give me a free sample for evaluating. :-P
