Hi Guys,
Has any of you connected a meridian to an XDA/o2 mini (with the Mini-B USB connector).
If so do I need a special cable ? Can I just use a standard USB/Serial converter and then a USB/USB Mini-B converter ? Do I need any special software on the XDA to manage the serial port ?

Cheers

Unfortunately you can't use the Mini's mini-USB to connect to a GPS; you need to connect via Bluetooth, as the mini-USB does not allow serial type connection (as I found out, as I also have a Mini, but now connect via BT to the GPS).
