Unable to connect with GPS COM port - ThinkPad Tablet 2

TITLE:
Unable to connect with GPS COM port - ThinkPad Tablet 2

SYMPTOM:
The GPS enabled software is unable to find a COM port in order to use the GPS data.

AFFECTED CONFIGURATIONS:
ThinkPad

AFFECTED SYSTEMS:
Tablet 2

OPERATING SYSTEMS:
Microsoft Windows 8

SOLUTION:
The ThinkPad Tablet 2 is a Microsoft Windows 8 only device and conforms to the new Microsoft standard of using sensors rather than COM ports for access to the GPS data. Therefore, newer Microsoft Windows 8 compatible software is needed in order to access the GPS data since older software cannot access the sensor device.
