Just bought an Ambicom/Billionton CF GPS on ebay. Although a few sources I found searching the web say this card works on insertion in a SL-5500, it of course doesn't work in mine. It shows up as a CF icon on the Z, but QueGPS doesn't see it at all. Do any of you have any tips on configuration in QueGPS that might be something to try? Or any other ideas? I suppose the GPS could be kaput, but I'd prefer not to entertain that thought, yet. Thanks.
