    Please do, I am thinking of getting TomTom to go with my Blue Logger. I wish there was a try before you buy.

    Otter Emperor: I'm using the Belkin BT GPS with a GSM Treo 650 from AT&T/Cingular. It works well. There's someone in the gpspassion forums (see the mapopolis section) that has been testing the cradle with a T650, but I don't know what type of phone he has. I prefer BT because I do a lot of business traveling and don't want to have to move a cradle from vehicle to vehicle. Putting the GPS receiver on the dashboard, near the windshield works for me. In most cars I can just wedge it between the windshield and the dashboard so it doesn't move.

    I am also not too fond of the Mapopolis user interface, but I think TomTom also has some limitations for navigating between regions. You can only navigate to the edge of a region (a state or predefined group of states), then you have to load the next one and navigate from there to where you are going. I took Mapopolis 2.3 with some of their demo maps to Europe last week and it worked great. I still haven't decided 100%, but I may go with Mapopolis because I like having access to their limited time maps when I travel to Europe and I would rather learn a single UI.

    I have iGuidance for the PocketPC and the interface is pretty nice. It is more like the TomTom interface. Too bad they don't have a version for Palm.

    FYI, the new version of TomTom Mobile (Mobile 5) will support the 650.

    Hi

    CDMA and GSM version only apply to the handsfree function. It does not relate to GPS application.

    Seidio offers four types of car kit.

    1) G2500M
    2) G2100M
    3) G2100H
    4) G2100S

    http://www.seidioonline.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=417

    Currently, G2100M, G2100H and G2100S can work with both CDMA and GSM version Treo 650. However, G2500M can only work with CDMA (Sprint) Treo 650. There are some GSM noises we are working on for GSM version. The GSM version for G2500M will be ready shortly.


    Seidio offers G2500M and G2100S GPS in the box for Treo 650. It comes with all you need for your GPS application. You can choose

    1) BT receiver or wired receiver
    2) Tomtom navigator 2004 or Mapopolis software and map

    Easy to setup and use. great savings

    Although the details are sketchy, TomTom Mobile 5 does looks nice. Any ideao if it will be for US or European navigation (or both)? Have you heard when it is supposed to be available?

    They seem to be hiding it a bit since it is difficult to find on their site without the direct link you provided. There's no link on their normal Products page.

    I hope they have a software-only version since I already have a BT GPS.

    I've looked at the TomTom web site a bit more and there are two new products listed as compatible with the 650, TomTom MOBILE 5:

    http://www.tomtom.com/products/product.php?ID=69

    and TomTom NAVIGATOR 5:

    http://www.tomtom.com/news/category....=94&Language=1

    The former is for smartphones and the latter for PDAs. I guess they figured that as both a PDA and a phone the 650 should get both!

    For MOBILE 5 the web site has a coverage page but this only shows European countries:

    http://www.tomtom.com/products/secti...=68&Language=1

    The NAVIGATOR 5 press release, however, says 'TomTom NAVIGATOR 5 is available in the United Kingdom, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Austria, Switzerland and Italy, as well as the United States of America.'

    I imagine that the US-available product will come with US maps!

    For MOBILE 5, I'm sure I read somewhere that it would be April, but I don't have a link for this.

    The NAVIGATOR 5 page says 'TomTom NAVIGATOR 5 is available from May 2005 at major retailers across Europe. The pricing for the wireless GPS and wired GPS versions will be announced shortly.' No mention of a US date.

    The site says that both MOBILE 5 and NAVIGATOR 5 will be available with a GPS. I didn't see any mention of a software-only version.
