    Does anyone have any recommendations on what GPS units (bluetooth or SDIO) that work well with the 650?

    Only those posted throughout the forums. Try a search on "GPS" and read a few threads.

    Did that. All I found was some info on the TOMTOM bundle. Looking to see if any other products have been used besides that one.

    Specifically I am looking for compatible GPS hardware.

    I just got the Delorme Blue Logger. It connects great and seems to track okay. I'm sure about the software on the Palm yet. It seems to take a long time to create a route on the Palm. Plus, I haven't figured out how to export from the desktop large areas, such as an entire state.

    I have a Belkin Bluetooth GPS that works well with the 650 (I don't use a headset). I use it with Mapopolis software. You can download the viewer for free and get some demo maps. I intend to purchase Mapopolis NavCard. From what I understand it does work with the 650 even though it is not officially suppoerted (see the Mapopolis forum at www.gpspassion.com). TomTom would be my other choice, but there's no way to try it out before buying it.

    I understand there's a new Seidio mount with an integrated serial GPS that works with the 650 without the issues of using a Bluetooth GPS and headset.

    GlobalSat Bluetooth GPS. I think (others can contradict me if it's not so) BT is a pretty standard interface, so if you're interfacing via BT, any GPS receiver should be OK.

    I just ordered the TomTom bundle from buy.com. The other alternative is Seidio http://www.seidioonline.com/ which has a nice package as well.

    I have the GlobalSat Bluetooth GPS..bought it on ebay for about $112. There's a newer version out I believe. Mine worked fine with Mapopolis, though i don't really like the maps or interface. The Ipaq navi software on my pocketPC was much nicer (can use the same GPS unit). Looking to buy TomTom Navigator...maps look a lot better.

    Seidio states that it works with CDMA only. I cannot figure that out. Does Belkin model work on GSM?

    I use a Socket Bluetooth GPS and Mapopolis with my Sprint T650.
    Works great!

    Thanks to all of you for giving me some places to start.

    Now, I am off to my room for not searching the BLOG correctly.

    It's not a blog. It's a forum.

    Nice avatar.

    TomTom is great, but it has some major short commings. I'm going to post a review soon comparing TomTom to Delorme's Pocket Street Atlas both using Blue Logger GPS.

    i have mapopolis but on the palm it is horrible- it is much better on pocket pc... i can't imagine using a treo for full time gps cause the screen is so small. i'm afraid i'd get into an accident trying to read it... i keep mapopolis on it just in case i need to give someone directions though...

    Belkin bluetooth GPS with the Tomtom Nav software. Works great, but I haven't compared it to anything but Mapopolis (both have pluses and minuses, but I like the Tomtom's interface better). You might want to wait for BIGtrouble77's review.

    Also, I use the ProClip (http://www.proclipusa.com/) to secure it to my car. It's a bit overpriced, but very nice!
