The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues. Please visit the new and improved RF Cafe Forums that were created in September of 2015. Unlike with the old forums where users registered individually, the new forums use a common User Name and Password so anyone can post without needing to create an account. Please find the current User Name and Password on the RF Cafe homepage. Thanks for your participation.

Below are all of the old forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Where would we look in our vehicles to find these data recorders ?
If they are "GPS enabled" then finding the antenna should be very easy.

I have the Ford service CD-rom for my truck, I don't recall seeing anything about a recorder, or connections for a recorder, in there.

Greetings:

Here is a good source from Senior magazine that you might find interesting. It lists car models beginning in 1996. Not all EDR modules have GPS capability, but one of the most notable is the OnStar system. A Google Search will provide all the answers you need.
