Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Dell Axim doesn’t support serial connections?

According to threads from other Pocket PC websites, I’ve read that the Dell Axim doesn’t support serial connections. I am still confused as to how they could end up not having serial connectivity (If so) when both their user's manual and getting started guide say there is a serial cradle. Does anyone no if this Serial connectivity issue is 100% true? I really am not going to care much if true! But I would like to know. And there are many people who are looking forward to using their Axim with a Wi-Fi CF Card and Serial GPS.

There is another thread on this board where a number of people talked about serial connections and alternatives. I also want to connect my existing AirMap 100 GPS via serial cable. The Dell moderator (Rollie) pretty much put an end to that thread by stating: "A serial cable is not available @ this time and when one will be available is unknown"

Looking for a Wi-Fi card for a Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

According to http://www.socketmobile.com/pdf/wireless-lan/go-wi-fi_spec.pdf it looks like you have to have Windows Moblie 5 or 6 or Windows CE.

The Axim X5 can only go up to Windows Mobile 2003 (Mobile 5 is the one after this).

My suggestion is sell the REALLY great Socket card and get one that works with your X5 (you have either Pocket PC 2002 or Windows Mobile 2003) If you Ebay search Dell TrueMobile, you'll find the card that works with either.

I need mine too, so it looks like we'll have a bidding war.

Dell axim x30

HI You have two ways: 1) Install the ActiveSync (Version 4.2 is recommended) PC Software with your PC first Next, you connect your Axim to your PC. Then you install the software or game into your PC. it will also install into your Axim automatically thru Sync process. 2) Or install the software or games into your External SD Memory card thru USB SD Card reader. Then put your sd memory card into your Axim and run the software or game. The 2GB or 4GB SD Card is reccommended since the game or software sometime is huge. I hope it is help. Regards, pingping

Does Axim Have a serial Connector

From what Dell shows in their downloadable manual there may be a fabled serial connector from the cradle and the travel cable. Dell does not offer it at this time. I only read once that Dell may offer if Mid Jan. I would bet that you would have better luck waiting for an aftermarket company to make one *IF* the unit supports serial. I honestly don't see why Dell wouldn't offer serial but there is always that chance that they will support USB only. I have yet to receive my unit.

Can the sync cable be used for regular serial or usb connections to external devices such as GPS devices?

No the Axim does not support Serial Interfaces at all. It also doesn't have USB Host capability.
