I've been having trouble getting a fix with my LEA6 module so I'm going to try to hook it up to the computer via usb (thats what the headers are for on the top side right?). So I've choped an old printer cord and and downloaded u-center 7 but after soldering in this configuration my windows 7(x64) box does not register that anything has been attached. Has anyone successfully accomplished this? Is there a GPS passthrough on the APM?

Looks like the new module is a bust. Lots of people having problems with it.
USB power is notoriously dirty and GPS units seem particularly sensitive to dirty power sources.
