This looks like it could be a nice docking station for Z's with USB hosting capabilities.

It's a USB 2.0 device with built in Ethernet, Keyboard & Mouse Ports, Serial & Parallel ports, and extra USB ports.

$49.99 today only (Friday. June 23rd) at Yugster.com

It looks like it normally goes for $85+
I don't know about drivers for all the devices, but I know that people have reported using most of those devices using only the drivers built into the latest kernels.

I don't own one, haven't tried one, and have never bought anything from this vendor.

I'm selling my SL-C760, since I've replaced it with an SL-C1000.

It's got a scratch on the outside of the case (I misplaced the pictures I took -- I'll post them soon), and the cosmetics are consitent with living in my pocket for the past two years, but it's in good working order (actually works better than it did when I bought it).

It had blown charger fuses when I got it, which I replaced (see this post). It's been charging fine since then, and is charging now as I type this (I try to keep the batteries charged, even if I'm not using it.) I still have some extra fuses, and can include some of them if you think you may be able to use them.

I also have an extra BL-08 battery (not a true Sharp battery, but works just as well), and an external battery charger that can go with it.

Included in this offer:
Sharp EA-72 charger
USB cable
Sharp CE-BC21 external battery charger
extra BL-08 battery

I can add a CF wireless card if you need one, but I don't have any extra memory cards (unless you want a 64MB CF card).

Asking $325 for the package, and an extra $20 for the 802.11b CF card if you want it.

Geeks.com currently has two USB receivers for $39.00
Here's a link to the CF version:
Here's a link to the USB version:
Oops -- the USB version's on sale today (until Weds) for $34.00. You can save an extra $1!

I bought the USB version last week, threw in a CAT5 crimp tool and a cheap USB mouse and paid $8 for the cheapest shipping option. I used the coupon code DEALNEWS for 10% off non-sale items (thus the $35 in the topic title).

I live near Detroit. I placed the order on Tuesday, and it arrived Friday or Saturday (I don't remember which. I had no time to look at it until this morning).

I plugged the USB version into my SL-C1000 (running pdaXrom) this morning, fired up gpsd and verified the connection, started roadmap, (waited 10 minutes), (moved the antenna to the top of my bookshelf), and it found my current location, from inside my office building. The console lists 10 satellites currently in view, and varies from a lock on 6 to none, but that's still pretty impressive for inside a building. It's a lot better than the 1st gen handheld which was the last GPS device I used. It took 10 minutes to find 1 satellite standing next to a window (I can almost see a window from where I'm sitting now), and I eventually had to move outdoors to get it to work.

The USB version I have has a 6 foot cable, and a magnetic base, so you could stick it to the top of the car, but the magnet isn't particularly strong, so I don't know whether I'd trust it at highway speeds.

I'll try it in the car later, and see how it tracks.

I know nothing about the CF version, except that it's about the same price.
