    I know I have seen come discussion of GPS in general, but I dont think many of us have the BT GPS yet. If anyone does (or knows where there are good reviews), please let me know. Thanks.

    I have been trying to find the same thing. Most people are stating that if the bt gps receiver has serial data, it should work with the treo 650. I think it might be a good idea to wait until after its release, some better bt receivers might show up for the 650.

    I have ordered an i.Trek BT GPS not only based on price, but the battery life is almost double many current models. Let me know if you would like more info.

    What up with most of the bt gps receivers having an accuracy of 10 meters? Do any have accuracy with 1-5 meters? Is 10 meters accurate enough?

    Also, whats a good maping software for the 650 that will work with nmea etc.?

    I wasn't sure whether this was brought up before, but I just realized that bluetooth gps and bluetooth headset can not be used simultaneouly unless the bluetooth spec allows mutli-tasking. So let me ask those who are familiar with the bluetooth GPS that whether this is possible or not. Even if you are not using a bluetooth headset, can a call be made and received while using bluetooth gps? If not, I would think twice about using a bluetooth gps since I can't receive or make calls while using gps.

    Can anyone shed some light on this topic?

    Not having a 650 in my greedy little hands yet I can't comment on using the headset and GPS simultaneously.

    With the 600 and a serial GPS running Mapopolis you can receive calls with the software running. To make a call you have to exit the software. It's really no big deal to re-enter Mapopolis and reroute during a phone call but my no big deal could be your pet peeve.

    That's quite a coupon! Just ordered one.

    Thanks,

    Pertinax

    Update: The belkin worked well for a while then quit. When I contacted Belkin they said they were nolonger selling or supporting the device and gave me a full refund. (Nice customer service) I then bought the TomTom GPS.

    How long is this coupon good for?

    You guys should really read the reviews over at GPSpassion....

    $140 w/o usable software on the Palm OS isn't that great of a deal....not totally bad but not great.

    Or perhaps I did think about the lack of palm support in their software. Lost of software out there for palm and I can use what they provide for my laptop.

    The bundled software doesn't include support for any Palm devices (I've read that the included software its't all that good anyway), but the GPS itself should work with any GPS aware Palm app.

    This table is old. The delorme info is quite outdated for example.

    I have no idea when (or if) it expires. I found the code on a "Hot Deals" web site. It (the coupon code) was originally posted back on Sept. 22, 2004.
