    I have a BT GPS that I have been using with my pocket pc for driving directions. I no longer use the pocket pc and would like to still use my $200.00 BT GPS. Is there any way to get my Treo 600 to work with this BT GPS. IS there a BT dongle or other device that allows for this to work or am I stuck with this BT GPS not being any good for use with my Treo600.

    Unless some magic BT drivers suddenly appear for the Palm SD card, no.

    I currently have an iPAQ 2215, Socket BT GPS, and Mapopolis for navigation. Works extremely well. If you also use Mapopolis, be aware that the license you bought for your PocketPC *does not* allow you to download maps for Palm. You have to buy another subscription! I think this policy is BS, but that's the way it is. I have never used a Treo 600, but one should be delivered sometime this afternoon - so I can't comment on how GPS navigation works with it.

    I have heard that http://www.semsons.com/itmousgpsrec.html is an excellent GPS for use with the Treo600, and at $110 with power adapter it's a good deal, IMHO.

    This one appears to be nice also and has voice navigation:

    DO they not make a serial adapter that accepts BT signals and pass along the data via the serial connection. I believe they do this for BT dongles that allow use of a Bluetooth headset. This would then not require drivers for any BT device since it's actually a serial connection

    That would be GREAT! A bluetooth transmitter/receiver connected to the T600 through the bottom serial port. Shouldn't be that hard to make that. Anybody knows if it exists?
