    I have the same question.
    Besides getting the TomTom Bundle with their own GPS bluetooth reciever, which one could I buy?

    There's some consensus that SiRF III capability is desirable. I have one of the OEMed Telenav receivers and am very impressed with it.

    Semsons is a good place to shop, at least price-wise:

    Also: 5% off coupon code - "SUMR719"

    This bundle looks like a very good value:

    I just read the thread created by Iganpo yesterday. He is using a GlobalSat BT-338. He said it works great... I might get that.

    You jogged my memory. The GlobalSat BT-338 is the one provided by Telenav ... it's the one that I have.

    thanks for all the input folks
    i am leaning towards the GlobalSat BT-338
    although i believe there is a newer or different version of the globalsat (BT-359W)
    anyone familiar with it?

    After returning a defective Itrek M5 (inaccurate, slow, conflicted with my headset, and sometimes would not find a sat) I got the BT-359W today. So far so good, about the size of an IPOD Nano. It paired with no problems, fix was quick and didn't experience any inaccuracies in the 100+ miles I drove today. Its has an auto power off after 10 mins. Unlike the Itrek or Iblue you have to manually power it back up. Wish it had the battery life of the Itrek but I would rather have accuracy.

    That's the bundle I have that's where I got it from. I've been very happy with the setup and concur with everything in the post above.

    Fugawi Marine ENC and BT-338. I know it says marine but it has the streets also. I love this thing. This reciever rocks it will lock in easily 8-12 seconds if it warm. Even after flying cross contry it will lock in under 30 seconds. Great luck with both of these. check em out
