    I got the same thing of the ebay, and my only problem with it is that they didnt tell me that i needed an extension for the cable. Its like 7in long, besides that i like it more than my regular one.

    I'm using one right now. It fits perfectly in my glove compartment.

    I just received one, too. I ordered it after reading (here) about someone (who put up a really nice web page - I'm sorry, I've forgotten who you are, right now) with an SUV with the kbd built into the drivers' side sun visor.

    Should look pretty slick in my Civic. It's just too damned cold to work on the car, right now. And my better half gets to park in the garage...

    I've had to resort to this current setup: I-Jam MP3 Player --> Cassette adapter --> Head unit.

    PATHETIC!

    Cool

    I have a few of those, but none in the car. I got them from a local surplus place for around $7. About the size of a VHS tape, and the keys are a little non standard, but they are cool. I mostly use it for testing and such.

    This message is for Aaron:

    Aaron, Can you still get one of these keyboards for $7.00 CDN? If so, can you tell me where in London? My Sister lives there and could get one for me.

    Thanks!

    These Dauphin keyboards are pretty excellent. They can be really small, by carving off like an inch off the top part (there's nothing in there except a place to store the keyboard cord)

    Warning though, they're pretty flimsy. Since they're cheap though, that's probably not a problem.

    I'm using one of those dauphins in my car. I built i little stand to go over the emergency brake in my jeep and it fits perfectly on it. The thing works great. I think this is the same keyboard some people try to sell as a win ce only keyboard for handhelds. They charge $60+. I got mine for $16 a while ago on yahoo shopping.
