    Can the Garmin software work with any BT GPS unit? I have the Treo 700WX and a GPS receiver and was curious if I could buy just the Garmin software and use it with my receiver.

    Every place I've looked only sells it as a bundle (including the TreoCentral Store), but nothing really says if you can use it with a different receiver that's not a Garmin.

    As a rule, Garmin's software works only with the Garmin Bluetooth GPS units. That may have changed recently, but I don't think so.
    Palm III -> Palm V -> Blue Palm Vx w/Omnisky -> Treo 270 -> Treo 600 -> Treo 650 -> Treo 680

    The BT hardware unit provides the serial number to unlock the maps every time you connect, so with a non Garmin BT unit you will only be able to view the Base map, not the detailed map.
    Thought of the day :
    No sense being pessimistic, it probably wouldn't work anyway
