First we need to be sure the GPS is working with the power adapter cable you wish to use. Try connecting the GPS directly to the Toughbook using the female DB9 connection that should be coming from the receiver. Do this while powering the unit with the power adapter cable. On the computer start HyperTerminal and select the proper comm. port and baud rate. You should see data ($GPGA,…) continually streaming on the screen.

Once you have this much working we can move to using the IFB box, the cabling from the IFB to the laptop.
