Unlike alternative GPS attachments for your handset, the SDG-810 provides a SiRF Star III 20-channel tracking adornment, is WASS-enabled, and sports a microSD slot to carry up to 2GB of excess data (like maps, for instance) since your original flash memory slot just got occupied. While pricing information wasn't readily available, this nifty smartphone must-have should be available in your neck of the woods (read: everywhere) real soon.
    I hope this means that an SDIO WiFi card with a Micro SD slot is on the horizon.

    There is a newer version coming out soon. I believe its the SDG-811 with a smaller antenna.

    Ever think about going with Bluetooth GPS units? The good things would be...
    1. Has seperate power source, so it will not cause additional drain on the Treo.
    2. Less likely to get damaged, since it's not sticking out of your device.

    You need the 810, which is SD size. This page shows both, and the 811 is Micro-SD.

    Although the 810 is listed as WinCE compatible, the Treo 700 is not on the list of compatible models.

    Has anyone tried this? According to this ebay seller, the 700wx is supported.
