HiI am planning something very similar when my unit arrives from China. Iam planning the following- Wire in USB hub- Wire in Bluetooth- Wire in 3G - Wire in GPSIve seen much smaller devices then the one you found, you can get really tiny blue tooth & wifi modules about half the length of the one you got. I think the biggest challenge will be space, how much free space is inside the case?ALso we need to find out if there will be drivers to support these new devices.

Just FYI, the RT3070 apparently has some very unstable drivers (we have seen this already in the original firmware) and doesn't like being put in hubs apparently.... The WM8505 is supposed to have 3 USB ports, so I would suggest using one of those to add the hub. The Eken M003 has an external USB port as well as the internal WiFi, so it may be true that is does have more ports internally.I am looking at adding a USB GPS dongle internally (they are about 20GBP) to one of said additional ports. As these are only USB-to-Serial adapters with a serial ported SirfStar III GPS module, it should work - assuming VIA didnt take the serial device drivers out of the firmware...... If they did, its a bigger job, but my Ekens are rooted, so its happy hacking time!!!

HeyThanks for that info. Here might be locations of internal USB ports.USB 1 - Top of device currently used by WifiUSB 2 - Wired into pins of bottom connector, tap it from thereUSB 3 - Near silkscreening M001_v05 there are 4 pads. But could be JTAG port?

well my wifi shorted out when i was messing with a USB 1.1 HUB as to let you know that 1.1 is not completable with android nor with windows CE have not tried Ubuntu till now wish puppy Linux can be installed on ARM9 as the touch screen drivers are available for Linux but think they took out ARM9 support to keep it under 100 MB so ordered a usb wifi card with rt3070 chip set hop it will work

Hello.I enabled to Bluetooth.The firmware version 1.7.4 is used. It is likely to go well if it is a Bluetooth dongle that can be recognized by the btusb module. To use Bluetooth UI, it tries to make scriptcmd. The following environment variable is added to original scriptcmd before saveenv. setenv bluetooth_ui yesAnd, I generated scriptcmd by using mkimage. If the firmware is updated by using this scriptcmd, Bluetooth UI can be used. The bluetooth headset can be used.

Hi jayrod.I attach scriptcmd.bluetooth.1.7.4.zipUnzip file.You change the name into scriptcmd, and copy it to the script folder of the firmware update file. And, update the firmware. Attention!!For firmware version 1.7.4. M001 crashes when using it by other versions. And... Your Own Risk:)

Log about Bluetooth is as follows. Bluetooth: L2CAP ver 2.13Bluetooth: L2CAP socket layer initializedBluetooth: SCO (Voice Link) ver 0.6Bluetooth: SCO socket layer initializedTrying to free already-free IRQ 4Bluetooth: RFCOMM socket layer initializedrfcomm_init_ttys: Can't register RFCOMM TTY driverBluetooth: RFCOMM ver 1.11Bluetooth: BNEP (Ethernet Emulation) ver 1.3Bluetooth: BNEP filters: protocol multicastBluetooth: HIDP (Human Interface Emulation) ver 1.2Headset works. Bluetooth mouse did not work. I think that the profile for Bluetooth GPS is not supported.
