  • Ps2 gps for Ipaq

    I want to buy one of these

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1

    but can I use a ps2 to USB adapter in the future to run it in a laptop USB?

    the adapter I have is like this

    Or can I buy the USB version GPS and use the adapter to use it with the Ipaq?

    thanks for any input,

    Scott

    No, you need the specific cable.
    The GPS uses a PS/2 type of connector, but it doesn't pass to a PS/2 port on a computer. That port doesn't have any way of receiving the type of input that the GPS sends.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

        you cant use your adaptor but you can use an adaptor - if you scroll down that ebay link there is a laptop diagram with a part number A-6013 which is a usb cable adaptor

          thanks for all you help guys. I will just go with the ps2 one and be done with it.
          I have a USB mouse anyway I could always hook it up to the mouse port on any futher computer I get.
