You could try parsing the following and use Google to try an retrieve the coordinates for. It may/ may not be close enough and if not you can use a GPS module and microcontroller to communicate the true GPS coordinates back to the computer via serial communications with Liberty BASIC.
As far as I read the Dual Bluetooth device is Apple or Android specific, there appears to be no Windows variant. The integrated Zebra GPS probably needs a conversation with the manufacturers to get a fast start. Does it have a .dll? That's what you need to get it to talk to Liberty.
Integrated Windows GPS is all very new, so you are breaking new ground for Liberty.
USB based GPS has been done and is fairly easy. But it is not integrated and you would be plugging in a dongle.

DUAL GPS also supports Windows operating system. The device is already connected to my windows via Bluetooth. I can also see in the control panel - Bluetooth settings - the com port it use (com3). Can you please direct me to an example LB code which can read the device data?

You may find the port is in use, you will have to experiment.
