Cingular Phones and GPS

by jgarniss / June 18, 2006 10:44 PM PDT

I'm looking to see if there is any way to combine my cell phone and my PDA with GPS capabilities. I currently get turn by turn instructions on the PDA with the GPS.

What I am wondering is if there is a Congular phone where I could use software to perform the same functions as my Garmin ique 3600. I am thinking that perhaps because the 8125 and the HP ipaq run windows, I should (in theory) be able to install windows-based software that will perform the turn by turn functionality.

I know the ipaq has built in GPS reception. Is there a way to make the 8125 do this, perhaps with an external GPS receiver that can be linked in somehow?

But the problem is that the software to make all this happen may not have been written yet. But from what you write, the hardware is there.

Does Tom-Tom have a version for this phone?

Get the Garmin Mobile 10. It works like a charm despite not being shown as compatible on their site. It's fantastic!

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
