Palm Zire 31 + GPAS Holux

I bought a palm zire31 recently and I will wish to connect to him a receiver GPS (holux gm-210) which I also have. The connector of the GPS being a port ps2, I do not find a cable allowing to connect my palm with this gps.

I bought a car-fed HUB USB which enables me to feed my GPS. In addition, I connect my palm to Gps via the HUB.

On the other hand, I do not receive any signal of the GPS (software of navigation that I use (mapsonic 2.5) does not find a GPS on port 4800.)

- is it necessary to parameterize a particular connection on the PALM??
- is it necessary to use a specific cable so that the palm can receive information of GPS(other that the Hot-Sync cable)???

I thank you by advance for your answers.

Re: Palm Zire 31 + GPAS Holux

I can't speak to GPS specifically, but Palm's connector communicates via RS-232 serial protocol. Most GPS systems have an RS-232 port/output of some sort. You may need to build a cable from scratch to match up the pin-outs of each device unless you can find one, which doesn't seem likely. No guarantee this will work, but it's the only thing that comes to mind.
