The vMapQL …

Can flexibly map both internal and external Microdrives to a wide range of address combinations allowing, for example, external Microdrives (or virtual drives) to appear as mdv1 or mdv2.

It is powered by the Microdrive bus and, apart from a relatively straight forward installation procedure, requires no changes to the QL hardware (check out the installation manual here). The device is configured by either a small standalone utility or by the toolkit that comes as standard with its companion device, the Microdrive hardware emulator, the vDriveQL .

Configuration changes are stored in non-volatile memory and are recalled whenever the QL is turned on. Any changes, including the current configuration at power-up, are also passed to the vDriveQL (if attached).

Note: As I'm in New Zealand the shipping cost for just one vMap QL is likely prohibitive. I expect that the vMapQL will be added to orders for other products I provide, such as the vDrive (QL or ZX), or Microdrive cables. To find them just search SellMyRetro.

If purchasing just request an invoice and I'll combine shipping with other items purchased at the same time, where applicable.
