Wardriving with Coconuts & Win x64 (don't cringe too much)

Thanks for updating the HAK5 Docs with Win x64 driver install instructions, the screenshots really helped a lot!

Using the Coconut x64 binary, would it be possible to attach a USB GPS for some quick and dirty Wardriving with Windows?  If not, is Kismet the best option for this delicate Coconut + GPS operation and any suggestions on the best pre-compiled USB bootable distro that could be updated to work with Coconut?  Mahalo

A simple Pineapple would be good for this. I would argue that you

Speaking of wardriving, I would love to get a version of this that does not need a computer to make it operate. I would love to attach a 10kmah battery to this thing and hide it in an office and come back to get it later.

I would argue that a Pineapple would be plenty good enough for this. You don't need all 2.4GHz channels for a stationary office location, especially if there is little to no overlap in the chosen location.

Apparently I'm answering a lot of questions myself these days.  Maybe it's a sign a senility.

Windows cannot support Kismet as GPS through USB and likely Coconut USB devices cannot be passed to the Linux layer. 

From the installation notes: "Unfortunately, it is not possible to use the WiFi Coconut with Kismet on Windows, because the WSL and WSL2 environments do not support passing USB devices to the Linux layer."

Yeah, I've never tried because I just assumed that WSL had no USB redirection or pass through. It's a compatibility layer, rather than a real hypervisor. I use Kali Live on a 128GB flash drive.

While technically correct, I would still like to use the coconut for this since. I am also looking into the hopefully not too distant future where we have a coconut pro that does all channels on both bands, or at least another that monitors 5 and now 6 ghz.
