quality. If you have an USB port on your notebook try to connect a

The socket on the bottom of these is a common failure point. It wobbles about until the solder cracks then the device won't charge. If you're confident with a soldering iron you might be able to fix it yourself. Remove the SD card and fold the GPS antenna down. Remove the four case screws and carefully separate the back by gently prying it along the join. Watch out for the cable to the GPS antenna. Now you should be able to see the 22-pin socket. The pins are tiny. Very carefully re-solder them, and the ends of the connector where they attach to the PCB. The YouTube video seems to illustrate it pretty well.

XBOX 360 will only work properly with a 'genuine' USB WIFI adapter designed specifically for it (and at an over inflated price IMO!). One popular way to play 'network' via the internet is to connect the XBOX 360 to your PC via Ethernet cable and have the PC connecting to the internet either via another ethernet connection or more likely via a Wifi connection which could be via your USB adapter connected to your PC and talking to your Wifi Router)
I believe there is something wrong, its a normal stereo socket.
I use differend 3.5 to 2.5 adapter (standard, from the shelf)without any problem to connect an FM Stereo-Transmitter.
The best solution to connect your car radio, its wireless.
