Hey all,
I bought a ET301 SiRF III Evaluation Board - USB back in november. I never got around to hooking it up due to some family issues. I go and hook it up today and I get a sparked up and a cap next to the power LED(or something like it) blew when I connected to my USB port!! I had battery and the atenna all in the right places.

My question is,
can I fix this?
do you guys know where I can buy a new one?
or one that has the screw type connector for antenna?

what can I do???

Thanks
Steve

P.S. anyone know why does Sparkfun don have many thing in stock?
