GPS on an 881U ?

I just got the AT&T data service, along with a Sierra Wireless 881U.  The specs from SW claim that the 881U has GPS capabilities.  How does one access them?
 
Thanks

After more research, I have found that you have Location Based Services (LBS), service. For the GPS to work..

Now for the TRU-Locate™ Solution, the 881U I have does not have this software, and I cannot find any downloads for this..

IF someone has any insight, on the LBS, now the time to speak up...

So now you have an 881?

Yep !! 881U   - With the USB, I can place an extended usb cable to move it around to get a better signal, I have a weak service where I use my laptop..

GPS is not active on the device.


What he said...err...I said earlier.  GPS is not active on the Sierra Wireless 881 or AT&T USBConnect 881.
