External Hard Drive

Would it be possible to hack the proprietary usb connector to enable an external hard drive for a car or otherwise?

re: external hard drive

A large collection of movies, maps, music in one place. No switching during an all day drive.

Re: external hard drive

A 1.8 or 2.5 external is small enough to slip in a pocket or mount under a dash. Possibly over a hundred gig. Power aux from car. Simple usb connector. Car mount for Titan. Bluetooth gps. Sorry if my question isn't worth a serious reply. Laptop can be a pain in the butt. Sercurity risk while traveling. Left in car while backpacking and hiking. Heat over 130 degrees. Don't have a umpc which would be perfect. ($1800 or $1000, too expensive) Umpc not practical on non-gsm network so you can't switch phone. Data costs anyone. Movies ,music, gps, maps, data, programs, pictures, camcorder video (all storage hogs.) I thought you guys like to stretch the limit.

Thanks nuguy, that is interesting. Will the Mogul take the gps and harddrive bluetooth at the same time?

This is an interesting question.

Perhaps not everyone on the forum thinks that it is a worthy endeavor-- hooking up an external HDD to the Titan In fact, I don't see myself doing it. However, I am driven to try everything possible with this little sucker so that I know the true capabilities of my device.

All it would take to answer your question is to pop a hard drive into one of the external enclosures that I have lying around here. Then, hook up the external HDD's USB cable to an adapter in order to step down to mini-USB. Plug it into the Titan and see if the Titan recognizes it.

I just installed USBModem tonight-- even though I'm very unlikely to ever need it. The point is: one day I may.

If no one beats me to it, I may just try this in the next coupl'a few dayz...

Thank you stevland.

I read somewhere else that the proprietary usb operates as a regular mini-usb connector. Is this true?
Does it just recognize the audio device and change digitally?

I'll be looking forward to hearing how your experiment went.

Thanks again
