    Hello everyone. I was looking for a GPS application for the Treo 300? Has anyone out there tried to get one to work and if so does it work just like a regular GPS? Im sure others have that same question. Thanks!

    I have used three GPS programs on my Treo 300. Quo Vadis, Route USA, and Trip Pilot. They all worked just fine. Trip Pilot was especially useful on our recent trip to Wisconsin. I had to make an adapter so I could plug my GPS into the Treo.

    ... is whether there is a GPS device that I can plug into the Treo similar to some of the springboards (perhaps through a cable in the syncing connection). GPS programs have been around for quite awhile. They don't help me any more than Mapquest.com if they don't know where I am.

    Has anyone heard of Geomode? It is supposedly a 100% software solution.

    Hello thegman

    http://www.gps-shop.com/index.html

    You mention this works GREAT on your treo. I assume you have a Treo 300 like I do. The reason I ask is that it says it works with Treo 180/270. If i purchase this what else would I need? Software?? One more thing. Just how good is it? Please let me know. Thanks!!

    One last thing. Just how much is EUR 159,00 in US dollars?

    No, I have a 270, but my wife has a 300 and it worked on it when I tried it.

    The unit, in dollars, is right aroun $190 with shipping.

    I am using, TripPilot (http://www.gpspilot.com/) which will set you back another $50.

    I download the maps I need when I travel and it is great. I put it head-2-head with the Hertz NeverLost system and it was just like the NeverLost functionality.

    I am also playing with some software that will let me use it when I am flying..........jury still isn't in on this one......

    This looks pretty cool- however am I missing the link to see the site in English. Did you buy the GPS from this shop- how long did shipping take? Are the instructions in English? Let us know.

    the treo info on the german sales site is down the lefthand side
    "GPS fur handspring"...treo is there

    Here is the actual company URL (sorry don't know HTML for link)

    http://www.haicom.com.tw/products.htm
    ->GPS receivers ->HI-203 (click on "PS/2 GPS receiver series")

    it is a ps/2 GPS receiver with different ps/2 to PDA adapters

    cool. actually, i suspect the grammar is better at the german site... the haicom site was obviously written by someone for whom english is NOT their primary language. still, the product looks neat.

    I emailed the headquarters to find out where to get it from in the US, and I was told to contact their Canadian Agent.

    Thanks for your inquiry.
    If possible, please contact our Canada agent:


    Attn.: Mr. Ian
    Tel. +1-403-239-1400
    Fax: +1-403-239-1408


    GPS Central
    11-1922 9th Ave SE
    Calgary, AB T2G 0V2
    Canada

    I figured out that their website is http://www.gpscentral.ca/.

    They don't have the Treo model listed, but it does say that all the PDA specific versions of the HI-203E series are special orders. So, I would think that you should be able to order the Treo model over the phone. Doing the conversion from CAD to US dollars, it comes out to be around $103 at the current exchange rate.

    I don't think you can get it.

    It appears to be for cellular service providers only.

    is sprint pcs fcc-e911 compliant?

    and if so can we get ahold of that software to use on our palms?

    Is the GPS Pilot works independently, or do I still need to purchase a stand-alone-GPS hardware (such as the Garmin)?

    I purchased the Delorme Earthmate GPS receiver and the Purple Cables serial port adapter for the Treo 300. I have tried it with Trip Pilot, Mapopolis and Solus. None will initialize the Earthmate. I'm baffled as to why?

    Has anyone found a cable for the Radioshack Digitraverler GPS unit to work with the treo?
