    Hi all, new to this forum and the Droid original in general. here's the dilemma. I'm going to a remote area that doesn't have AC for 2 weeks. We are hiking in and I won't be bringing my clunky large laptop.

    I have a GPS that will store 5 days of data to synch with a camera, but need to dump the data somewhere every 5 days or it becomes useless from that point on. Is there an app for the Droid that will allow me to connect directly to this device via the USB interface (SIMA GPS, has a USB out/in) that I can transfer and store the data file from the GPS, then dump onto my PC when I return home?

    thanks in advance!

    Not sure if the GPS will allow you to access and copy stuff from the Droid. I am pretty sure though, that if you get a card adapter that will make a standard SD card out of the MicroSD it should work.

    If you're talking about this:

    Sima Products

    it looks to me like you may be out of luck. USB connections require one device to be the host, and this device appears to have no interface other than a power button (if that's what the round part is in the middle), making it unlikely that it can act as a host.

    If that's not the device you're talking about, can you provide a link with more information?
