The gps usb cable started going more and more flaky, which resulted in more networks found without location data.. which does not improve my score. Today I stopped twice on my way home to restart kismet so it synchronized with the gps again. Still, I scored 99 new networks today without gps locations, and 51 new networks with gps locations. I decided to modify an old usb cable together with an old keyboard extension cable to power the gps (power from the usb connector, data to serial) so I could revert to getting data in via the good old serial port. I considered soldering the keyboard cable to the mainboard but the service manual for this laptop makes this look like a very complicated thing to do.
