But has anyone found any USB GPS devices (yes I know most are serial now) that work with the Zaurus? I don't want to end up buying one just to find out it won't work.

I've connected a garmin using the SerialIO RS-232 connector.

http://www.serialio.com/products/adaptors/ZThinCable.htm

I was able to read the satelite data with qgps. I only wish I could get better map software for Z. Ideally, I wish I could read the screen bitmap from the Garmin and just duplicate it on the Z. Some time back I thought I saw a Mac or PC gps program that had decyphered enough of the Gramin protocol and knew the secret codes to request a bitmat dump from the garmin. I can't find it anymore though.
