Maybe we can use a GPS logger with the A70 OR A101 through the USB host?
I have one of these Navin units. I can test when my A101 ships next month.http://www.navin.com.tw/miniHomer.htm
The Navin uses the SkyTraq Venus 6 GPS chipset.
This company makes the drivers for the Navin. SEE THE LAST LINEhttp://www.prolific.com.tw/eng/downloads.asp?id=31

I noticed that in "Settings > Locations & Security" there is no option for usb host adapter, only for "Use Wireless Networks" + "Bluetooth". Did you manage to get the PL-2303 working on your Gen8 device?
