    ummm, I don't have one, but this thing runs Linux and you are trying to run Windows CE software on it. I think you are out of luck. That's like buying a Macintosh and trying to run Windows software.

    Hi,

    I found some informations about your problem:

    1st
    You should run a SW which is working on your Zaurus i.e. qpeGPS [1]. This is freeware which is the whole idea behind Linux. I think you can only sell the card Holux GM270 but not the SW.

    2nd
    The SW can be downloded [2].

    3rd
    I found some further informations about your card (Holux GM270) [3]it seems that it is not running out of the box, but if you follow the link you find a nice howto.

    Just my 2 cents

    Regards

    Dave

    The main problem is that your software is for a Windows CE device and the Zaurus is a Linux device. The operating system is completely different...
