    A "regular" USB cable will only charge your GPSlim 236 when connected to your computer, but it will not let you use the receiver as a "GPS mouse". For direct cable connection you indeed need the optional USB adapter cable.

      Seems i'm reviving a lot of threads lately ....

      Anybody figured out how to make one of these cables. I'd rather not spend more money on my already over budget carputer ... and i'm a sucker for home made cables :-)
