2215 - fldng kbd extension?
      #11419 - 05/27/04 07:27 PM

I'm trying to locate a 22-pin m/f extension to put between my iPAQ and its folding keyboard so I can use it further from the kbd, or in landscape. Anyone know where I can find such a thing?

Thanks

Hi Lisa,

Thanks for at least responding! It's tantalizing, since this item -

http://tinyurl.com/2hggx

looks so close, although the 2215 isn't listed as being compatible. I've emailed Foxcomm about it, but have yet to hear back Gomadic doesn't have anything either. But what do you think, is an extension cable really model-specific? Isn't the 22-pin connector at the bottom a standard?

The iPAQ 2215 uses the same connector as the iPAQ 3000 and 5000 series models, so I'd think it would work since those are listed as supported.

Not all iPAQs use the same connector-- go figure!

Now thatexcellent info, thanks. Based on that I think it's worth the $27 risk. I'll report back when I get it.
Thanks again
