GPS bluetooth receivers

by Countyourblessings / March 23, 2008 1:01 PM PDT

Hey, I recently bought a new phone - a Sony Ericsson w580i - and was wondering if there are any compatible GPS bluetooth receivers.

I've found some neat receiver but no clue if they are compatible or not.

Thanks in advance!

Just curious, what model GPS receivers have you found? I think I would check with manufacturer of the devices to verify compatibility. Are you using At&t??

Yeah, I'm using AT&T. Some bluetooth GPS receivers I've looked at are Holux GPSlim 240, TomTom Wireless, GlobalSat BT-359W, GlobalSat BT-359C, etc...

I have the Sony Ericsson W580i which I was thinking about getting the HGE-100 GPS Enabler, but I would rather prefer a bluetooh receiver.

While I don't specifically which GPS device would be best, I don't think anybody has to purchase the model sold by At&t to use Telenav or any other mapping application. Your best bet is to specifically check with the GPS manufacturer to verify it is compatible with your phone. I would imagine that some folks who have already purchased other Bluetooth GPS receivers may provide opinions in this forum.
