Yes but it ships from China. I only buy from U.S sellers.

Got the TPU case from B.D. Boutique (Amazon) and it fits well. They are all out of white now, only pink and purple left. I see it is cheaper at Ebay, but oh well I don't do Ebay.

It does have an extra cut-out for nothing does that make sense? It also have covering over the on/off switch and volume button.

Is that normal? It fits snugly in the GPS case. So anyway I am all fixed up now.

Where's the extra cut out? It should only have one for the camera, speakers and SD Card slot. Yes the buttons are covered. It keeps them clean.

Hi Blossom! Thanks for telling me about the TPU case and the GPS cover. Works well together.

The extra cut out is bottom left, next to the charging plug cutout. It is pretty big too.

I do like the grippy side though.

Oh! That cut out so you take the case off without ripping it. I have popped mine out a few times to clean it. Just a little warm water and let it completely dry before putting it back on.

Hmmm... did they tell you that? I would have never figured that one out.

Anyway it fits snug.

I finally figured out the widgets for screendim. It took long enough it is great. I love love love this little gadget. I haven't tried the voice feature of searching yet. I do like it has TSS. I am spending more time on this gadget and neglecting my kindles, lol. No actually I am reading on the PW also. My KFHD is kinda neglected

No there is no way I could get it back on and off without that little slot without warping it. I just got a new case for my Kindle Fire so it feels new again. I read on both. Hubby complains if I use SGP5 sometimes because of the bright buttons so I switch over to the KF to make him happy.

I was using this last night with the new case. I don't like the button covers, I can't feel the power button or the volume buttons

I am thinking of cutting a cut-out for them.

Amazingly the bright buttons don't bother me as much as I thought. But I can't find the buttons to touch in the dark, I am hitting it every where to find the back, or the menu buttons, or home.

Too bad you can't dim those bright buttons though.

I use a portable video game case for a Nintendo DS. It was $10 at Wal-Mart. The one I have has a pocket that fits the GP5, a loop that a good stylus will clip into, 3 little pockets (one of which I use for my SD/microSD adapter), and a second compartment that fits the GP5's native earphones. I later found that some GPS cases fit.

The GPS cases also don't come in bilious electric off-green bubble-pack-texture like my DS case. That's a plus.

Stylus confuse me, are the SMGP and Kindles capacitive or what kind of screens???? Do you have to buy a stylus for each brand? Also is the screen for the Samsung Media Galaxy Player glass or plastic? I hope I don't scratch it cause I use a wet kleenex and then wipe with cotton fabric.
The GP5 is capacitive. I don't know what substrate. Kindle models vary. You'll have to be more specific in your question. I found the cheap styli do not work well. I have a Targus that came bundled with a USB keyboard that works well. I've seen them around, but they are a little bit on the expensive side. YGWYPF. I'm told the best is the Wacom Bamboo, but I've never been willing to spring for one.
