Hello everyone,
I'm proud owner of a new and shiny T420 (with ubuntu 1104 if that plays a role) and was wanting to enhance it with a mobile broadband module (mbm) mainly to get internal gps. good 3g would be a bonus. Now, I don't really know which mbms are good in terms of picking up and locking in a signal but i found this list of mbms that have relatively good support so I guess I'd prefer one of 'em:

http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/mbm/index.php?title=Main_Page

does anyone have personal experience on this? can anyone give me advice on it? are there any mbms that I can attach an antenna to? maybe one looping around the screen? is that worth the effort? or maybe it's too early to think about it?
I've done the gps bit using usb and bt but now i want something prey can take advantage of ;)

thanks in advance!
