    GPS Connection

    I like what you guys have going here, its a great site, full of information...

    I'm wanting to have a smaller version of a carputer, using my HP Jornada 568 Pocket Pc...I want to use my magellan gps 320, pocket streets, and a compact flash card full of mp3s....

    My magellan gps 320 will work with my laptop or desktop, but it has a serial db9 connector to connect it to a pc......my problem is, i would like to hook my gps 320 to my jornada through that serial connection..

    my first plan was to go like this:
    gps serial connector-->jornada serial sync cable-->jornada 568

    second, i could connect it like this
    gps serial connector-->serial to usb cable-->jornada usb sync cable--> jornada 568

    would either of these ways work with my jornada and allow me to display gps information on pocket streets?

    thanks for the help, and im glad to be here

    I highly doubt it simply because your device isn't going to have drivers for any of these conversions.

    Best bet, check this out, near the bottom:

    I usualy check the hardware and newbie forum so I don't spend much time in the GPS forum. You may get some other answers in there but that conversion cord is the best answer I know of.
