    I just bought a Holux M-1000 to replace my former Holux GPSlim 236 (I gave it to my sister). So far, so good. Longer battery life indeed than te 236. The M-1000 is based on the new MTK chipset which is reported to be as sensitive as the SiRF Star III chipset, but the MTK consumes 2 to 3 times less power. This is the same chipset used in the iBlue 737, 757, etc. The Holux though does not have the auto on/off feature unlike the iBlue. I don't mind that at all. Got mine on sale for about $53 including tax and shipping in CA.

    It's working great with Tomtom 6 in my Palm Treo 700p.

    Is this still working well?
    Is there a cost for Tom Tom to work with the GPS?

    What is the best GPS software for a Treo 650? Should I try a free one or
    is there a "known" good one? Ex: TomTom?

    TomTom 6 is your best bet. I had TomTom 5 and liked it but now version 6 is way better. It has all US and Canada Maps in one file so you don't have to download several maps trying to figure out which state is in what map. I got stuck in a traffic jam and used the avoid roadblock feature. Around 10 minutes later I was out of it and back on my way heading home. It's the best and works great on a Treo 650.

    Yeah big ups to TomTom, search my recent posts to find some things I said to NOT get Telenav. Telenav was terrible in my experience, TomTom was such a breathe of fresh air, it made me want to use it everywhere I went.

    And I use my 700P with the Holux 240, the realll tiny one. Battery life is a realistic 8 hours, size of a pack gums and weighs nothing, enabling me to carry it in my pocket and use GPS pedestrian style which is a big plus I think many people over look. Satellite fixation is great too, stays linked on the 1st floor of a 3 story apartment complex even like 15 feet from the windows. Sure the other ones are "small enough to carry in a pocket", but would you really want to carry that brick when they make one thats way smaller and even more comfortable to carry around, while working fine on car charger in the car too.

    I use the Holux M-1000 with TomTom6 and it works flawlessly. I would recommend it.
