Here is one I am talking about, which is produced by same manufacturer, but nowhere to be found for sale.

Did lots of serching and googling today, but unfortunately did not find much .
I have a TP-051 gps mouse. It has PS2 male connector. Now I read that in order to make it work on the laptop, I need to connect it through USB or serial port, because PS2 does not supply power as needed. Unfortunately I was not able to find USB adaptor for my model on sale anywhere. Are these adpators universal and one from any company will work, like this one?...
Damn can't find it now, but I think it was one by Garmin. I guess a regular adaptor like they use for keyboard, as in picture below won't work...
picture taken from ebay...
Um, a PS2 connector does supply power!
Hm, then maybe my testing software was not setup properly, I'll test it again, but I would prefer to run it through USB!
The pdf says it has a 'female' PS2 connector while clearly showing a male connector!!
Wait a second, LED is active now, it never was when i connected through PS2 before. Let's play with testing software now...
Yep, I noticed that tooOriginally Posted by Laidback
If the testing software is looking for a com port then you need a converter.Originally Posted by Ladzio
Sounds like you are missing part of the cable. My serial GPS adapter terminates with a PS/2 connector but it requires an adapter supplied by the GPS manufacturer to convert it to serial.
Looks like you're a cable missing you need a PS-2/Serial splitter or PS/2 to USB adapter
PS-2 will give you power, but I haven't seen it used a serial port.
