Hi All
I'm not sure if this is the right forum but I'm hoping that someone might be able to help
I have a Dell Axim PDA which I was hoping to hook up to a BU-353 GPS receiver however the GPS receiver does not appear to be receiving power from the PDA. Does any one know a way to get power from the Dell Axim to the GPS
Cheers
Daryl

Daryl,

does the PDA have the ability to provide power output via USB? I'd have thought it may have been too smaller a device to provide that facility. I'm sure someone will know the answer

GPS Australia is also another great forum for all things navigation and GPS so it might pay to pop in there and post the questions as well.

Good luck with it.

Mick

I would agree wih Mick, I do not believe the PDA hasn't the abilityy to provide the power required to run the BU-353.

Daryl,

You cannot connect the BU-353 to the Axim. The Axim does not have a USB port.

What you require is a Bluetooth Mouse such as the GlobalSat BT-338.
This mouse interfaces to the Axim via Bluetooth and receives it's power to maintain/charge the internal battery from a 12 volt cable plugged into the vehicle's cigarette socket.
The BT-338 will run for several hours on its internal battery but to maintain full battery life, its easier to have it plugged into the socket when in the vehicle.
It is supplied with both a 240 volt AC power pack and the 12 volt DC cable.


Bill.
