Hi,

can any kind person here give me a good source for the cables for the
iPaq/TomTom GPS wired connection?

It consists of the GPS receiver (which I have, and works), as well as the
connector to the power socket/ciggie lighter and the iPAQ connector on the
other hand?

I bought a number of fuses when I was in Stuttgart (thanks to Jonathan) and

now it seems the problem lies elsewhere.

TomTom doesn't seem to offer them online, and none of the vendors know what

I am talking about, support isn't answering. Does anyone know a good
solution for this?

Just to recap...

Like the vendors I've no idea what you are talking about. (Mainly because
I
know nothing about Ipaq's)

How about some part/model numbers?
And what the cable is doing? (Power? Comms?)

Is this e-bay item any good? Power lead for both items.

Or on this site could it be cable D?

And this is an Ipaq car charger plus other cables.

Hello Steve,

I managed to track one down on Ebay somehow, the problem is that TomTom
doesn't seem to have a part number for that damn thing... and I also
discovered that my Holux Bluetooth GPS works as well.

Ciao

Enrico
