    I was just thinking that if there was a treo or any palm product built with GPS would that drain the power more than a bluetooth connection to a GPS unit. Any ideas on this, I would think that the bluetooth would drain less since it is short range. I am thinking about buying one of those key chain gps receivers.

    Bluetooth incorporates a transmitter and a receiver. GPS is just a receiver based on that I'd say bluetooth would use more power....just a guess though.

    But if you use bluetooth to connect to your GPS it is the same.

    The reason I ask is maybe it wont be such a big deal if the GPS would not be built in if we had to put up with worse battery life because of the built in gps.
