    Been reasearching adding GPS navigation to my Treo and I'm trying to figure out the differences between the Palm GPS Navigator and the TomTom5 GPS bundle.

    Obviously the GPS receivers are different, but what's the difference between the software? What I'm looking for is the one with the most accurate, detailed maps.

    Anyone have any experience with either or both??

    My understanding is that they are same software. In fact I bought the Palm GPS Navigator last year and was able to upgrade to TomTom 5 when it came out a few months ago. This being said, I'm not certain whether Palm GPS Navigator has the old version or the new one.

    I was wondering, do either of these programs report altitude, as in feet above sea level?

    It is a software issue. The standard GPS hardware output includes elevation. My Mapopolis 2.3 displays it.
