The Meade engineers (and I use that term loosely) ought to be flogged for this design. I have to use the phone cable, the adapter and the USB to Serial cable in order to connect to my PC. Lets see, USB has only been out for how long? There should be one cable. The only saving grace is that it worked with my LX200GPS. Note, check the baud rate setting before updating software...I had mine set to 9600, and it took forever...later I found the setting and could have used 115,000. I would only recommend this if there were no other solution...and there isn't. Common Meade, step up to the plate and build the right cable.
