    So it says in the cingular release that this will be able to use the TeleNav feature does this mean that it has a built in GPS reciver or will you have to buy a bluetooth reciever? Just wondering thanks for the help.

    I think that's an over the air monthy fee type.

    Right I know its an over the air fee type of program but do I need to buy a gps reciever or does the 680 have a built in gps reciever? I guess my main question is is there a way that I could get the tomtom software and not have to buy an external gps reciever? I dont want to pay 10 bucks a month (telanav) for something I could just buy outright (TomTom) and use as much as I want.

    You will have to buy a Bluetooth GPS receiver. The Treo 680, in fact the entire Treo family, does not have a built in GPS receiver.

    You will need to pay $10 a month for the telenav service, and purchase a gps receiver. Or purchase another sd card based gps software, along with a gps receiver. Either way, you will need to purchase a receiver. No built in GPS on the 680. Personally, I don't think $10 a month is a bad deal, for having current maps, restaurant finder, atm finder, etc.

    Thanks for the info. I figured it didnt because I hadnt seen anything in any of the spec sheets for it but when cingular said it was telenav ready it gave me some hope As for paying the $10 a month for the updated features that doesnt really appeal to me plus I will probably just download a cracked version of tomtom with bittorrent ... to test it out.
