    $184.95 + shipping $15.00 additional off if bought in April?

    Probably the best deal right now. I just got one from them about 2 weeks ago or so. However, I would upgrade to a better GPS. The one you mentioned at $184 does not have the latest SiRF III chip. I would bump it up a little to get the SiRF III chip.

    Think of it as a "clearance deal" with the old SiRF chipset. Does that Arkon mount charge the Treo / GPS batteries or ya gotta buy that stuff separate ?

    That is just a regular unpowered mount. The powered mount is an extra $40 for the Treo.

    Your feedback leads me to believe that for $5 more this is better, or at least the mount looks cleaner with less cables everywhere: https://www.seidioonline.com/index.a...ROD&ProdID=278

    I bought the TomTom Navigator 5 USA + OnCourse SiRF Star III Bluetooth GPS Receiver and I am extremely happy with it. I read a reveiw stating that the amount of blinking lights on the HAiCOM Hi-406 BT GPS could be anoying at night (depending where you locate the GPS). Treocentral has a recent review on the GlobalSat BT-338 BT GPS . The one I bought is pretty much the same. I would purchase the OnCourse SiRF Star III because of the "replaceable battery with larger capacity (1700mAh) that enables the OnCourse Bluetooth GPS to run for up to 17 hours". Personal preference.

    cash70, thanks for your feedback. What car mount if any are you using?

    I already had the ProClip car mount, so I decided on not purchasing a new one.

    Pros

    - Already had it. No extra $$$.
    - Made specifically for the Treo 650 and the car.

    Cons

    - I have 2 power cables in use at a time.

    **This does not bother me since I have a 3 way cig. lighter splitter. I keep the GPS almost down on the floor of the car. So I only see 1 cable. However, I think it would be nice to have one of the powered mounts.

    The setup is within perfect reach for me if I need to do anything on the phone while driving. I created a tab within ZLauncher called "driving". There I placed the applications that I would use the most while on the wheel (highly discouraged) Using Zlauncher, I was able to make the icons bigger for easy access. If you want I can take a pic of my setup when I get home later today and post it here.

    The extra power plug allows me to use my FM Transmitter or my little boy can plug in his Nintendo.

    cash70 - where did you get that three-way DC outlet splitter with the power switch? Do you know the manufacturer and model?

    I got it at Target. I don't recall the manufacturer and model. However, if you go to their auto section, you should find it with the other auto accessories that come in a yellow package.

    Here's mine sans Treo as I used it to take pics....sorry for sun glare.

    I have three ciggie lighter plugs in front seat and 2 in back but between Ipods, 120volt converter, radar, gameboys, etc, they come in handy. Mostly I wanted to be able to jump beyween cars with "one" grab and with the Treo, GPS and charger "all in one" handful, it's nice easy grab....all you need is one proclip mount per vehicle.

    You can't even see the power cord as it runs down the seam of the fake wood / vinyl border.

    How is the audio if not using a cradle that has speaker? I can go both ways and am looking at one of Seidio ones, but once you get into that, the bundle price increasese quite substantially...

    The audio is pretty good on mine as long as I am listening to music like a normal person. Now, this is with the original TomTom sounds. If you modify the sounds like I did then the modified sounds are not as loud.

    thx. I am narrowing down the bundle to Globalsat bundle or the Seidio bundle with the SIRF III chipset. The first one runs for $249.99 with the powered cradle and the second one $239.95. Question is if the Globalsat Receiver $10 bucks better than the RBT-2010... M

    Nice setup, im gonna have to get one of those 3-way adapters as well. I'll post some pics of my setup later. I have both my Treo and iPod mounted.
