    I recently scored an FZ-VEBG11 desktop cradle for my FZ-G1 for just $100 delivered!

    I want to pin out the connector on my FZ G1 and figured a dock might be a good way to do that.

    The dock connector looks like it is mostly power and USB.
    The dock has 2 usb ports, 1 hdmi, 1 network, and 1 serial port. It appears that they are all USB based devices and not analogue connections through the dock to corresponding components.

    The dock is advertised as not for use as a car dock and I can see why; a spring loaded wheel is the only restraint holding the FZ-G1 into the dock The benefit is that it is super easy to get into/out of the dock.
    Anyway, here are some terrible pictures.Enjoy.

    The only dock that i encountered so far that had real pass through(at least for gpu) was the CF-52 one. With my MK5 performance i could use the displayport on it to feed multiple 1080p displays or a 4k 60hz one. With devices such as FZ-G1, CF-54 and CF-20 you are limited to the hdmi port that does not support 4k 60hz

    I bought a CF U1 dock and opened it to trace the usb port connections.

    What I found was the data connections are on the docking port but the power connection (5V) is not.
    It gets that from the power supply connected to the dock.
