    Need help big time, I'm new to the world of GPS. Thanks to Mdavis, he has suggested Holux GPS Reciever + Tom Tom 6 is a very good combo for Treo 680.

    Now, does anyone have these units? Holux M1000 or Holux 240 Sirf

    Any suggestion & advice will help big time

    Thanks everyone

    I have the Holux M1000 with TomTom 6. It works great and I'd recommend it to anyone.

    Seems like a lot of ppl are using the m1000 so far.

    I use the 240 slim and TT6 with my 700p, flawless.

    I would highly recommend the 240 slim because its so small, size of a small pack of gum, battery life is pretty decent, and enables you to take it anywhere with you.

    I use the 240 with my E61i. Works great

    I use the M1000 and love it. From what I've read the newer chipset in the M1000 is as accurate as the SIRF chipset but gets better battery life.

    An advantage of the m1000 is the user replaceable battery. But the 240 is as small as it gets so if you want to keep it with you in your pocket or on a key chain it's easy. That's what I just ordered. But they both have the SiRF III chip.

    someone below mentioned that the 240 is as small as it gets. I don't think that is true any longer. check out this one:

    there is a thread in this Bluetooth category on this receiver called, appropriatelt enough, Key Ring GPS.

    Actually the 240 is still smaller with a volume of 21,120 mm cubed. While the Freedom Keychain is 25,740 mm cubed making it 22% bigger. That's definitely really close though. I guess it depend on the form you want then. Skinny and rectagular or more square-like.

    Will do. I even got a blank sheet from best skins ever to put on it cause it'll be on my keychain too cause I like that shiny black on it.

    Just FYI, the Holux M1000 does NOT have the SiRF III chipset, it has the MTK MT3318 chipset. Works very well, though.

    Whoops. Thanks for the correction. I must've been thinking of something else.

    If you want the best of both I just noticed this one, the M-1200:
    http://www.buygpsnow.com/Holux-M-120...ount)_897.aspx

    Size and shape of the 240 but changeable, long life battery of the M1000. Man now I'm contemplating on exchanging the 240 for the M-1200. lol.

    EDIT:
    Okay I've actually ordered the M-1200. haha. I figured the average battery and it not being user replaceable were the only cons the 240 had and the M-1200 fixes that. As long as the MTK MT3318 works as well as I've read I shouldn't have a problem then. Only thing is that it doesn't come with a USB-A to USB-mini cable but I've already got one that should work.

    Of course. I tried looking for a review but it's so new nothing is really out there. Probably sometime next week I'll have some comments about it.

    The M-1200 battery isn't user replaceable, in case anyone was wondering.

    I am able to setup bluetooth between my Mac Mini and Holux M1000 GPS, but not on my Treo. Does one need to have Windows in order to do this? Must one use the installation software from the CD that comes with the M1000 (also downloadable from Holux)? Is there a work-around for Mac users?

    Just bought my Holux M1000. Hope it arrives soon, wanna start my GPS life soon!

    I dunno why you think it isn't when everywhere including Holux says it is.
    http://www.holux.com/JCore/en/produc...nt.jsp?pno=227

    I received mine a couple weeks ago but have been too busy to comment on it like I said I would. I think it works really well. I was in New York and New Jersey using it and it was just fine. Even in Manhattan I was able to use it pretty easily with no problems. Now I'm in Miami which I have no clue about the area and it's working great down here too. If anything I just had to drive to a little to a more open area to find signal. I've been using it with Telenav and if anything the only problem in general that I've had is Telenav's voice has gotten left and right mixed up but the symbol is always correct.

    EDIT:
    Actually upon reading closely I just realize it only says "changeable" and not user replaceable. I just assumed it was since the m1000 says the same thing and is. Sorry about that. :-D
