The gps was a logical choice if the serial lines were available.
I figured it was going to be tightly integrated but worth a shot.
Yup, it was pretty tight in there.
The only identifiable components in there were
1. Vreg. rf3196ms
2. Bluetooth. bts4025
3. WLan. ar6102g-bm2d
The gps may have been hiding under the metal shields but I wasn't game to try and take them off.
I couldn't even find the gps antenna :(
Back to using a Bluetooth serial module.

In some phones you can get a serial connection on the USB port if you throw the right software switches. If they have released the source code for the kernel have a dig around in the drivers looking for references to UARTs etc.
