I recently acquired an ix260, branded as a HP rugged 3610, nice hardened notebook with integrated touchscreen and GPS
. I cannot find the GPS
device nor find linux
support for it, I know the hardware
exists in the machine as I took the screen
apart to confirm it, hardinfo does show one unknown USB device but I cant figure out if that is the touch screen
of the GPS. has anyone else had any experience with this machine?
For $150 (after shipping) I am very happy to have this machine.
Before the peanut gallery starts recommending that I downgrade to Windows I will stop that discussion now, I've been using linux
exclusively for several years and after my experiences in tech support will never go back to pay-to-play software
