Hello,

Hoping some one can help, I have a Road Angel and want to use the GPS system of the Road Angel and send it to my Dell Axim X5, but i can find a cable to do the job, if any can help find one that will work i will be so happy. Have found a few online but none of them say they are for the Axim... Crying or Very sad


Thanks for you time

They make the road angel and I believe they have the leads.
I have just bought the New road angel and will be looking for a lead to connect to my Dell Axim X5. I mailed tech support and this was thier answer........


As soon as we are aware that an installation is in place the data is verified as soon as logistically possible.

Road Angel is NMEA compatible and uses Version 2.0 / 0183. This means that it can be used with some Route Mapping software for Satellite Navigation on a laptop PC or handheld PDA. There is a Serial adapter port on the rear of the Road Angel which allows you to output the data string to a laptop or PDA via a serial connection, the cable can be ordered by calling the number below, it costs 9.95 inc VAT and delivery.

The data can be outputted at either 4800, 9600 or 19200 bps (bits per second) Using a laptop you can connect the Road Angel via a direct serial connection, if you are using a PDA a specific cable will be required, contact www.holux-uk.com for details. We have successfully outputted the GPS data to the following mapping programs on a laptop: Route 66, Microsoft AutoRoute 2003 and InfoMap Professional 7.0 from Directions Ltd. Microsoft AutoRoute 2003 only receives GPS data every five seconds, which is not good for navigation. To increase this to one second updates you will need to download a patch from http://gpssoft.homestead.com

Please note that we can only provide support for the Road Angel. Any difficulties you encounter with connecting devices will have to be referred to the software vendor.

I hope that this answers your queries.

Regards

Just to add an update. You cannot at this stage (unless somebody is clever enough to manufactures one) connect a Dell Axim X5 direct to the New road angel. It uses different voltages and language to communicate.So thats that!

Rubbish.

The New Road Angel outputs standard NMEA on RS232 levels. You could use this cable from: http://www.pc-mobile.net/pdaserial.htm
GPS interface cable - for Dell Axim X5
For Garmin/Magellan GPS (not for Delorme/RandMcNally GPS) (connect to PC serial cable of your GPS ). Most other serial GPS may also work.
For use with mapping/navigation software (NMEA input), cannot be used for download/upload data to/from GPS. see note
Length: 20cm Axim X5 has separate power input so a combo interface is not necessary.

You would need to purchase a Road Angel PS2 - 9pin adaptor to get the two items to mate, but thats all you do require.

Guys,
Can I add something.....

The reason you can't connect a Road Angel directly to a Dell - any of them - is that they use different voltage levels for their communications. The road angel outputs RS232 levels and the Dell requires TTL levels!

Too technical? If you plug the Dell directly in to the road angel you will smoke the Dell!

Get yourself a GPS ready car mount such as the Seidio G2500 or the TomTom mount. Then contact Holux UK for one of their Road Angel to PDA mount cables.

Hope this helps.
