    Currently, we do not support the GPS Wireless Navigator software on the Treo. The GPS Portable Navigator software (not wireless, no directions) will work with the Treo. To use it with GPS, you will need a GPS unit and a cable that connects your Treo to the GPS output cable. There are serial (9 pin) output cables available for the Treo. See: for a 9 pin cable that will work (it may need a gender adapter).
