After many hours searching for what I would think would be a commonly discussed issue, and not getting a clear answer...... I will start a new thread and ask for myself.
HOW DO I ADAPT MY TREO SERIAL CABLE TO CONNECT WITH THE DB9 FEMALE CONNECTOR THAT COMES OUT OF MY GPS UNIT?
I have read that i can connect a 9 volt battery as follows:
negitive terminal of battery to pin 5 of the serial connector and the positive terminal connects to a 470 ohm resister and then to pin 7, or pin 7 and 4, depending on which explaination I read. I have tried this and it did not seem to work. What I actually did was to slice the treo serial hotsync cable open to expose the wires that connected to pins 4,5 and 7 and connect the battery to the proper leads. Does anyone have any specific advice for me? Thanks for the help?
