Thanks, but the issue is the keypad. This item, like a laptop computer,
requires a certain amount of power for the electronics and display. Thus the need
for the cord.

Yes, I saw that part of the discussion ... if it HAS to be plugged in for power, it might just as well be plugged into the mount. I wouldn't want to see that nice display go away just to do away with the cable. If folks don't mind (temporarily) giving up the hand-controller, they could make a bluetooth connection from a Pocket PC running TheSky Pocket Edition.
