Rugged 12 (7202) GPS Issues with Extended I/O Module

Have a Latitude Rugged 12 (7202) Tablet with Windows 10 installed and updated as of this post. GPS works good without the Extended I/O Module (Manufacturer Part NGHD0 & Dell Part 590-TEXX; Link to it Here). When you attach the module, GPS signal drops to nothing, and it cant get a lock. Tested this for 2 days, no lock. Common sense says this module is blocking the GPS receiver. Is there a workaround to it without using an external GPS, or am I missing something here? Seems like an engineering oversight, or I am just that dumb. Has anyone else encountered this, and if so, what was your workaround aside from removing the module and/or attaching 3rd party GPS receiver? Problem is I need both the GPS and module up and running at the same time, and have no room to attach a USB or even Bluetooh GPS receiver. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
