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.

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.
