Only in Japan would they make a fish finder add-on! Very strange, but still kinda cool.

Unfortunately not, only came out in Germany and is one of the Lynx holy grails along with the Marlboro Team Lynx.

Both of those are awesome and strange at the same time.

I bought a Doso Wireless Controller for my PSP and it was a horrible piece of rubbish.  It looked like a cheap playstation joystick and had the wireless reception of a dead fish.  It required an adapter to an adapter to allow power and data through to the PSP.  I guess the parasitic relationship demanded as many tentacle-like connections as deemed necessary by Cthulhu.
