Windows 7 Starter and Location Sensor

On my new ASUS eeePC 1005P Win 7 Starter is preinstalled. Does that Starter support location sensors? I get error when installing WIN-7-driver for Navilock 402U, u-blox 5 chip inside.

U-Blox informs that Starter does not support location sensors. Microsoft announces location sensors are supported by any Win 7.
