We need to try a process of elimination as what is working and not working. If you have access to an external GPS, could you plug direct to that 9 pin serial port (of course you would need to select the correct comport for Mobile GPS settings and matching the baud rate to the output of the external GPS unit) to see if you can get GPS into the Mobile program? If that works, then we know this powered docking station can send and transmit GPS signal.

The Implement switch only needs to receive power when you want to log. So this wire needs to be plugged to a togel or Implement hitch. When you turn on the togel switch or lower the implement it makes a power connect to the IFB to log data in Mobile. When you turn off the togel switch or raise the implement Mobile will stop logging because the Implement Switch IFB is not receiving power.

I am more concerned that the entire docking station is not wired to transmit/receive GPS.

If you do not have access to an external GPS that only other thing I could think to try is using a null modem adapter/cable between the docking station and the Implement Switch IFB.
