Geo XT w/ 2011 Mobile and IFB switch

I just recently purchased the new mobile software. I am trying to use it on a 2003 series Geo XT. I have a mobile charging unit with a 12v chord and 9 pin female plug. I have connected an IFB switch to this charger base which is connected to the XT. I have gone under advanced settings and clicked on everything possible under the implement switch option. I have tried all 9 comm ports, the GPS com, and the IFB. I haven't been able to get the implement switch to work. Is there another setting on the GPS unit that I need to change, does it need to have something running like active sync to look for the switch. On some of the comm ports I get an "unable to connect to implement switch" warning. It is on about 3 or 4 of the ports, 2 and 9 I know for sure give me this warning.

Any help is appreciated.......this was kind of an experiment to get this to work......I talked to an IT person with trimble before the purchase and I told them my theory with this setup and they told me in theory it should work.

Thanks
