    For those of you who either don't want to mess with installing additional software (for example GPSgate) to get TomTom 6 to work with the 800w's built-in GPS, or want your TomTom to work even when you are out of range of a Sprint nextwork: I installed TomTom and configured it to work with my external GPS receiver today, and it works fine.

    Some GPS recievers are designed to let you add a serial port. Others are not.

    If they aren't, then you will need GPSGate to get them to work.

    My bluetooth GPS puck (IO Gear) allows me to setup a serial port.

    Whew ... sometimes ignorance is bliss, I just set up the bluetooth device, assigned a com port, and it worked! Had I known beforehand about the issue you raised, I might have thought twice about switching

    FYI, my GPS puck is a 4 year old (at least) CoPilot.
