Since I've got internal bluetooth and wi-fi modules working on my Zaurus, I no longer need CF cards, thus here it goes...

1. Socket Bluetooth CF card. Revision "F".

2. Symbol Spectrum24 802.11b CF card.

Both cards work great, $35/each plus shipping at your choice.

This is repost, since the original post seemed to be gone MIA. I think Simpad community is relatively small, so this forum might be the good place to post it. If it's against forum's rules, please let me know and I remove it then.

Hello,

I have an almost new (bought around last summer) Simpad SL-4 with all original box contents - documentations, power adapter, serial cable, etc.

It's running Opie and I was using it as a car GPS navigation device for which purpose it worked very well. It has Zroadmap installed and I was using my bluetooth-based GPS tranciever and US maps located on 128MB SD card.

The Simpad is very hacking-friendly device, and I modded it to add bluetooth and SD/MMC card slot, please see the following threads for more information:

It has a 128MB SD card right now.

It still has a few free GPIO pins available and plenty of space inside the case, so addtional hardware modifications could be possible.

I just realized that I didn't in last few months (and won't in near feature) have any time to play with it due to involvement with other projects, and thinking that it's a shame for such an interesting device to collect dust in my closet. I'd like it to find its new home in hands of a fellow forum member, rather than putting it off on EBay. So, if anyone if interested in it, please let me know.

Here's a two-liner to have a green front LED turned on when PXA270-based Zaurus is not suspended. The main idea behind this is to mimic OBSD behavior. IMHO, it's quite handy to see whever Zaurus is suspended based on status of the front LED. Tested on C1K only, C3K/C3.1K use green LED as an indicator of HD activity, so I'm not sure if they would benefit from that patch.
You might want to change CONFIG_ARCH_PXA_SPITZ to CONFIG_ARCH_PXA_AKITA to make it compile on C1K only.
