    Hmmm, I wasn't aware of this! I ordered an unlocked phone and when I called and asked about this, the rep mentioned nothing about Cingular, just took my SN and said I'd be credited.

    I wonder though... the page says:

    (including former AT&T Wireless customers)
    The Treo I have is technically an old AT&T Treo. The friend I bought it from was an AT&T customer. I wonder if that had some effect, or whether the guy just didn't check and put it through. I'll let you know if I ever get credited, and if they then recharge me at some point in the future

    I've been doing some research on GPS units. I have Mapopolis and a Haikom GPS mouse that I use with my T600. A few weeks ago I was actually looking for a stand-alone GPS for our new car, but the options that were worth trading up from Mapopolis would have been a significant chunk of change ($600 at the minimum).

    One of those units, and actually one of the cheapest was TomTom Go. Well, it turns out they have just made available a version of their software available for PocketPC and Palm. It's a huge step up from mapopolis and of course due to that it cost more, but not THAT much more. I've seen it for as low as $125. Of course you also need a GPS receiver. Bluetooth models generally go for around $100 give or take. I'm not an expert on these units, but on another thread here, there are some good reviews of a TomTom branded one, and Amazon is selling the whole TomTom package (software, maps, and BT GPS) for a total of $250. You can of course save by getting Mapopolis, but having already experienced the pain of dealing with everything on a county level, I'm ready for a more seamless solution...

    Sorry Mtreo, if I was one of those guys. I truly thought that it had nothing to do with Cingular. Treonaughts, I don't think, said anything about Cingular, and of course the rep never mentioned Cingular (I ordered the unlocked T600)...

    dvdmon,

    Not to be misconstrued as a sales plug for mapopolis, but they've recently released an SD card (called U.S. NavCard) version that contains the entire map grid of the U.S, and it's city based. Goes for $149. Mine arrived yesterday.

    I've been using Mapopolis and an iTrek serial GPS mouse with my T 600 since Dec 2003, and so I can certainly relate to your pain comment above regarding the county map approach. A mega-size pain indeed!

    While I have not used any other palm based GPS software, and therefore have nothing to compare against Mapopolis, I'm impressed with the U.S. NavCard product so far. I'm using it on my wifes' Tungsten T3 with the new i.Trek BT GPS (Nemerix chipset). Pretty sweet. Love the "no cable" set up. All in all, it's pretty seamless.

    My $0.02 cents.

    Hmmm. I didn't know that, thanks aolumide. Guess I jumped the gun. I'm curious about how the two stack up against each other. Maybe if I get some spare change I'll even look at buying that one and seeing for myself. Either that or maybe there are some reviews? I know there are some of TomTom...

    It is true. Howvever, I should get respect for my ideas, my expression, and my behavior, not my age. For my age, I will accept the benefit of the doubt. I appreciate your intent.

    M'kay......So, it does work.
    Has anybody tried the BT i.Trek w/ TomTom?

    I certainly respect your insistance on not giving P1 the benefit of the doubt. I have been mistreated by several companies that I no longer do business w/, & I'm assuming that you have probably had similar experiences totalling a far greater number than me. Though none of us wanted to hear that P1's shipping policies could be so terrible, you kept us grounded enough to realize that we should be prepared to deal w/ the worst. Now that our unlocked GSM Treo 650's are shipping, we can be happy to know that the worst-case scenario of March that you gave was not quite correct. Thank you for lowering our expectations of P1 to have them come out better than what we anticipated.

    Perhaps. However, I will give them a shameless plug. I love their product and I appreciate their support. I have spent a large part of today working with Mapopolis and I can recommend them and their product.

    Thanks for your report; I look forward to hearing more. That said, it seems to me that the problem for the 650 is not the mapping software but the connector. I can afford the 650 at almost any price but the (arbitrary, P1 has failed to defend or explain it) change in the connector emasculates most exisitng GPS solutions. It may be that the Mapopolis card with some BT GPS solution may work, but it is far from obvious and expensive to test. I admit that my current GPS solutiion using iTrek and Mapopolis is a great value. However, I resent the fact that I cannot find any way to salvage any part of it as I move to the 650 and that any 650 solution looks as though it will cost twice what I have paid for my 600 solution.

    Do I have it right or am I missing something.
