You could ask them if it is possible to get version for eMate or do some modification to use this one in eMate.

I know that for this guy form NewtonSales the high quality customer service is not strong side, but I bought from him USB module ones. And I got it. So, I think is worth to try.

BTW, I don’t know any stories connected with NewtonSales. Could someone clarify why people don’t like him?
