    Have you found any Killer Apps., aside from using BT for wireless voice calls?

    Now that the Treo 650 has been out for more than half a year, I'm curious what applications have you found that take advantage of the BlueTooth hardware capabilities of the device?

    Thanks everyone, these are some really cool apps! If ya got more, I'm having fun trying these out :-) Are there any good BT Chat apps that would allow two Treo 650's send messages back and forth, maybe even with emoticons, etc?

    Sailing clicker is by far the best app to show off a Treo. People think its magic for some reason. Amazing app. Worth every penny.

    BT GPS w/TomTom.... Works almost as nice as dedicated $600+ GPS units. There're a variety of other nav programs that support BT GPS (e.g. Mapopolis), but TomTom is the slickest.

    people seem to love either TomTom or Mapopolism, but hate the other. is there a clear winner betwen these two?

    I own both (bought Mapopolis first before TomTom was available). IMO, the only ways Mapopolis would have an advantage:
    1. You are more used to Mapopolis (I suspect most who favor Mapopolis on this board might be in this category; it's been around longer).
    2. A map in a particular area you need is more accurate. All mapping products have some variances between their maps and reality. I can't say one is more accurate than the other in general, but you might find a difference of importance to you in a particular location.
    3. If you never use or plan to use a GPS with your mapping program. TomTom is optimized (assumes) a GPS, although it can be used w/o one. In Mapopolis, a GPS is a bit more of a bolt-on / afterthought.
    Otherwise, TomTom is far faster, looks much nicer, and is much easier to use. Functionally, they're very similar, but the ease of use and speed of TomTom make it seem more like a consumer appliance, and Mapopolis seems more like a "proof of concept" (look, you can do mapping on a Palm device).

    Regarding Mapopolis, I must say that the NavCard solution is very slick and VERY fast - much faster then the one running off the device itself. Just got it, and very appreciative of it. Where it used to take about a minute to two minutes to route locally (or just reset ALOT), the NavCard is a completely different animal.


    I don't get restarts, the routing is AMAZINGLY fast, and overall I'm very happy with the purchase. I have not used TomTom, but I can tell you that I love Mapopolis NavCard.

    Does anyone know if Bluetooth on the Treo 650 do two things at once? For instance can I use a Bluetooth headset and a Bluetooth GPS at the same time?

    There is also an application called "BlueKey" which will lock your Treo 650 with when you power it off, at a certain time (and this part does work, unlike the Palm OS security), or when a certain application is started.

    You can unlock your Treo 650 either by entering your password, or by having a companion Bluetooth device in the vincinity, such as your Bluetooth headset, which it will detect and unlock your Treo.

    It is a little buggy - it has not caused a crash on mine yet, but it does freeze the Treo if I try a Bluetooth unlock while the headset is connected to the Treo during a call or right after a call, which means battery cover off and RESET.....
