Clie NX70V, NX73, NX80 and NZ90 movie & video FAQ
      #16895 - 10/29/04 11:35 AM


With regards to my last question...

PS: If no PDA/cable will do this 'out of the box'... do you see any reason a 'Y' cable (serial AND USB connections) can't plug the serial connection to the PDA -AND- the USB connection to a (live) USB/cigarette lighter adaptor AT THE SAME TIME???

PSS: The goal is to hardwire PDA to my car's diagnostic port. All automotive diagnostic (at least OBD-II diagnostics, for those in the know) PDA connection systems MUST use a serial connection between the car's diagnostic port and PDA to work. None can provide power via this serial connection... since the goal is to hardwire the PDA, I need to provide power/recharge via the car's electrical system and at the same time have the serial cable connected to the PDA.

Thanks again for any help.

There are cigarette lighter chargers for PDAs including Clies but I don't believe that Sony makes a serial cable for the Clies, only USB.

Greg,

Thanks for the reply! Indeed serial cables are available for the Clie's (aftermarket). What are your thoughts on my question?

Thanks again.
