Webcam port for internal GPS? - 04-03-2009, 04:08 AM
has anyone confirmed that the Webcam port can be used to hook up internal USB devices? I have a webcam-less Mini,and was thinking about ordering the display cable with the camera cable,to see if I could splice in a normal USB connector to hook up,lets say,a mini GPS receiver,which should fit in the slot where the camera should go
Sounds like an easy enough mod,if the Camera port works right (like does it have enough power?)
I'd also wouldnt mind trying to tie it into a hub, but I have no soldering skillz. If I did this,and it works,I would definitely try the 64 gig Runcore on the USB to see how it does (if/when I get it).
