When installing the drivers for the GOBI 2000 or 3000 WAN card, add GPS=0 to the executable.

For the GOBI 3000 card, this would be;

C:\Drivers\WWANSR\LenovoQMISetup.exe GPS=0

For the GOBI 2000 card, this would be;

C:\drivers\WWANQL\Driver\SETUP.EXE GPS=0

(Please note: This is the setup.exe in the \WWANWL\Driver\ directory, not the one in \WWANWL\)
