    Connecting Pharos iGPS Dongle

    Another fine mess I've got me into. Before I ask, I have 'd and not found anything!

    I've got a Pharos iGPS dongle, but it appears to be for a Pocket PC... it has two cables, the first goes from the dongle itself to a female PS2 plug and the second connects the female PS2 to a Pocket PC interface with a cigarette lighter power adapter.

    Question is: if I can find a gender changer for the PS2, will this work plugged into a ps2 port or a serial port or is it going to be completely wrong?

    Second question : if I *can* do it, any idea where to find the right gender changer in the UK... I'm striking out at the moment finding a Female PS2 -> Male PS2.

    Bump. Guess not? Maybe I'll just whack it on Ebay as a Pocket PC one and use the money to buy a proper PC one!

    I have the pharos 360 and it features replaceable cables. You can get a USB cable for the 360 (actually that's what mine came with) for the PC, get cables for specific PDAs, even a rechargeable bluetooth dock for using it on the go. Hope that helps.

    I've got the 360 too. Had the pocket pc adapter for my Axim and recently starting my pocketpc project found the usb cable. Go to the Pharos site and find their online retailers. I think a few of them have it available. It's not that expensive.
