    Hello All

    I have a wired GPS on my 650 using Mapopolis. Due to the constant crashing of Mapopolis Im looking to buy TomTom 5 for my 650. My question is : "Which version of TomTom will work with a 'wired' GPS unit?"
    I can only find info on bluetooth GPS units on the site. Will wired be reognized? Is a demo available?

    Thanks all.

    I second the question - I have Mapoplis as well, and I've heard very good things about TomTom - currently have an I.Trek GPS mouse. Any ideas?

    I am using an i.Trek S1 mouse GPS with my Treo 650 and TomTom Navigator 5 (TT5)and it works great. No problems as all. I even purchased the bluetooth adapter for the i.Trek S1 and in the end decided that I like the wired option better. This way, if a phone call comes in while I am using the GPS in the car, I can use my bluetooth headset. As soon as the call is connected, the TT5 comes right back. Plus the phone stays charged.

    Magohn, Check out http://www.semsons.com/gpshardware.html or http://www.tigergps.com for various GPS and software offerings. Unfortunately, there is no demo available for TT5.

    Good luck.

    Just a quick update om my situation. I went with Tom Tom 5 Navigator and after a few bugs on the install I must say this prog is head and shoulders above Mapopolis.

    Works great with my generic, wired GPS receiver and Im having a blast with all the options that actually work! (Mapopolis take note!)
    I deleted Mapopolis form my 650 and will never go there again. Terrible reset problem on the 650 and no way to get a refund.

    TT5 is excellent software, thanks for all the help....
