    Well I'm excited.

    Wahili: Canada maps are pretty low detail in my experience, but I think Toronto is one of the better detailed areas. I wouldn't expect San Juan to even exist in GPS map form, most places outside of continental US and Western Europe are largely inexistent as navigatable GPS maps. For example, no navigatable maps of any country in South America exists as far as I have been able to find, let alone central american ones. In fact, I don't think there are navigatable maps of Mexico even... so I would be very surprised if there was one for Puerto Rico.

    I tried Mapopolis and the software continues to run during a phone call. Haven't tried Tom Tom.

    Woah, it IS there. I'm surprised! That's cool. I wish the whole world was available in GPS maps just in case...

    Also, are the installation instructions pretty clear?

    Much thanks from this BT GPS noob.
    Yeah, that's the one I ordered.

    The instructions were typical of techno gadgets. It was pretty straight forward. I did get hotsync errors when I installed the application, the application update, and the map, but the errors were harmless as the data was installed OK.

    any idea how accurate the unit is in yards and whether it loses the signal to the GPS ever?

    also have u tried putting the unit your glove compartment or something that isnt on the dashboard just to check if it still works like that?
    I've only had it for a day, but it seems as least as accurate as a garmin handheld unit I used last year (it had no navigation maps).

    I get no GPS reception inside my metal and concrete office building, but anywhere in my car, SUV or in my home I have no troubles.

    I'm getting this under the tree from my spouse for x-mas (even tho I'm waiting for my GSM 650).
    I snapped some pictures with a digital camera that I'll post soon. I didn't snap any 2D pics. The screen looks great, very readable.

    The TomTom interface has some cool zooming features too.

    Well, the TomTom app exits, but when the call ended, I launched TomTom again and after 3-4 seconds it synced up with the GPS unit again and continued giving directions.

    When I use Mapopolis, and try to generate a route between Union County, NJ, and Westchester County, NY, it takes almost 5 minutes to process, and then it crashes. I read somewhere on GPSPassion that TomTom would generate the same route in 20 seconds. Can you confirm this?
    I don't have the north east map set installed on my SD card. I did try a few georgraphically distant locations within Utah and the routes generated in less than 10 seconds.

    I have the app and a map installed on the SD card. There is small 50kb stub that resides on main memory.

    I noticed no delays running from SD (I have a SanDisk Ultra II card).

    I don't want to overwhelm LinuxGuy with questions, but do you see any indications that the software may work with other BT GPS units besides the included one?
    Yes, in the "Specify your GPS hardware" configuration page it gives the choices:

    TomTom Wireless GPS
    TomTom Cable GPS
    Other Bluetooth GPS
    Other Cable NMEA GPS

I hope that's not true, because I use this all the time in Mapopolis, and it would be awkward to deal with one map at a time. Mapopolis gives you the option of autoloading all bordering maps when loading one particular map, and I use this to load all the bordering county maps.
    With TomTom a single map can be a single state, or it can be several states. There is one map that has all of California, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, and Montana.

    It ships with 8 CDs worth of maps in several variations.

    For example to get Utah, you can have:

    Utah by itself
    Utah plus Colorado, Wyoming, and Idaho
    Utah plus Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico
    Utah plus California, Washintong, Oregon, Nevada, Idaho, and Montana.

    I noticed that California comes in a single map, or just S. Caliornia, or just N. California, or in various combinations with surrounding states.

I think iQue is superior in giving GPS directions (more accurate and tells the exit numbers with more frequent voice prompts), TomTom really outshines everything else with their 3D rendering. I haven't been able to try TomTom on 650 yet as I'm still waiting for the bluetooth GPS receiver.
    When a call comes in you get the normal "answer" or "ignore" prompt.

    This I'm curious about, since the current stuff I've had no troubles with including no reboots or freezes.

    I went to www.tomtom.com

    then "Support"

    then "Find Updates"

    Then I clicked on the link titled, "Update December 2004 - TomTom Navigator 2004 for Palm (improved support for PalmOne Tungsten T5)".
