Hello to all!
As you remember two months ago just a week after PDC 2008 I’ve created a sample Windows 7 Location Aware WPF Application. You can consider it as a mashup:
Let me say thanks to Yukinori Morishita from Redmond for his implementation of LocationProvider that I used to subscribe to changes of Location data. Thanks come also to Prasanna Padmanabhan (PC|3, Sensor and Location Platform team Test Lead) who gave me detailed explanations on Location API design for Windows 7 M3 and Windows 7 Beta without whose help Yuki’s LocationProvider would be much harder to implement.

All additional info on how to work with this app will be hosted on this site.

Windows 7-compatible Virtual Earth 3D-based Navigation Application. Uses Windows 7 Location Platform
You say that one of the requirements for this solution is a "Windows 7-compatible Location Provider (say GPS)".
Have you got a list of actual GPS devices that can be used with the Location API?
Thank you very much for your interest in this post. Unfortunately I can't disclose our # of partners who will support Sensor and Location Platform in Windows 7 also I believe this will be disclosured sooner or later at Gavin Gear's blog @ http://blogs.msdn.com/gavingear/.
