Hello waypoint

I used a portable USB charger to charge my Omnia. It takes 4x AA batteries and has an USB output.

You also need to get a "charge only" cable in order to use the portable USB charger to charge the Omnia.

I bought this unit 2 years ago from Song Brothers in Sim Lim Sq. Brand = ZAPP. Price S$30 to $40 depending on model.

The other alternative is a portable Solar Charger from Aigo. Has a 4200mA internal battery which is charged by the solar panels. It also has an USB output. Price $168. Shops in SLS or Suntec.

Regards

David

I'm still looking for an e-charger that works; a charger that runs off a single or two of 'AA' batteries that will charge the phone battery where 12-V or wall warts are not available. Anyone here with an idea or lead as to where I can find one?

Thanks!

gpspoxy which created a code to BS Que. What was the different if by keygen way. All Garmin software must need Garmin hardware in order not to break copywrite law.

Latest version being i900DZHJ1

Back-up all data important first! The update WILL erase all data.

GM-MySInMXT.exe is for Garmin MXT Symbian version, GM-MySin.exe is for everything else.

Hmmm... Then something must be wrong with my phone then. :wink: But seriously, it varies depending on the PDA or Phone half of the hardware depending on the firmware updates. So it's i900DZHJ1 for me on the Phone half but a combination of i900DXHJ1/DZHJ1 for the PDA half. Check it out at Settings/System/Version.
