This is how the Usb-host should have been made. Now it does not stick out from
the side.
Now I can keep Zaurus in waterproof bag and use usb-GPS while kayaking.

So you just dismantled your host cable for the parts, I take it? I've looked a bit, and haven't seen USB plugs for sale anywhere.

No, the miniplug was from a regular surplus camera-cable. Zaurus thinks now the plug is from a host-cable, because the pin #4 is connected to the pin #5 and not because the plug is fatter. Real host-plug is fatter, because it prevents pushing it into a non-host device ( a like camera).
As regards to the regular-sized female-USB-connector, you can find them anywhere, it took mine from a broken computer.
