gps and the 5500

hi
i was thinking of getting the bluetooth gps unit, but what else do i require?
i note on ebay that some sellers are mentioning route66 map system, and that i need a spare card slot.

just started using google maps with the my location feature (gprs) but i see it can use gps too. only thing is i pay each time i use it.

thanks

Hi,

I have the GPSlim 236 from Holux and it works great with my Nokia 5500 over bluetooth. I use the mapping software from Nokia. It tells me where I am and can plot routes. The maps can be pulled from the internet and stored on your memory card. You do have to pay if you want to use the navigation feature.
I just checked and my BT GPS works with google maps too but like you said you pay for the GPRS connection to get the maps.

Best of luck,

John
