    I bought a receiver, but I need some software now. What is the best bang for the buck? I have seen some packages in the $100+ dollar range, but that seems a lot for the software only considering the low cost of complete nav systems these days!

    Free software that works is Earthcomber. You still need the bluetooth gps ($80-100)

    I have a BT GPS receiver.

    That software doesnt seem to provide turn by turn navigation? I dont mind paying a couple bucks.. but $150+ seems steep!

    Earthcomber does give directions, if that is what you were talking about. I took it off because I have tomtom too and didn't want to waste the space

    TomTom or Garmin. If you think they are too expensive...I don't know what to tell. There is a reason for example MS street is cheap, becuase its crap.

    I have been using Mapopolis on my Treo 650, and now on my Centro. All the maps are on one microSD card. I transferred them off the original SD card they came on.

    yea, I was looking for something like the Garmin Mobile I had on my other cell phone. I realize that it has to download maps, but I didnt mind that.

    course, it was $10 a month. Guess I need to pull the trigger on some "real" GPS software

    question: anybody know a source for tomtom or Garmin that ships already on a microSD card?

    Wondering if Google Maps can work with a GPS via bluetooth? That would be great.

    Google maps for palm , alas doesn't work with bluetooth gps.tom tom are designed to be downloaded to a sd card reader -- allowing you to put other stuff on the same card

    at least 1gb - and that's the size the pre-loaded comes with. the centro supports 4gb. I have a 2gb so I can have some music and pics.


    however I haven't been able to get my TomTom Navigator 6 to successfully run quite yet. Apparently some people have.

    I found the Google Maps on the Centro to be neat for free. I haven't actually tested it in the car but it does give you turn by turn, without the GPS. I guess if you miss the turn you're screwed but who here does that?

    TeleNav is always an option. It's a monthly $9.99 subscription, but you don't have to have a bunch of maps on SD card and I think the maps are updated more often.

    Emtac Navigator software is pretty good too, certainly better looking than mapopolis
