    Another GPS Receiver that works well with the HTC TYTN

    Well I ended up finally getting one off of E-Bay thanks to Lisa doing the searching for me.

    It’s a 42ch Bluetooth with USB dongle and optional external Antenna.

    This is a link to the same make and model one that I bought.

    Hopefully the link works. If it doesn't and you want to see it, just do a search on ebay for JRT-29 you must search in the description section of the auctions. As the title is just listed as

    In order to use this device you will need a Pocket PC Phone or other comparable phone. (Blackberries I believe do work. Just remember the bigger the screen the better. I am ordering a larger 4 GB Micro SD card as just the Canadian / Alaska maps are nearly a gig. All the USA maps are about 4 gig, but at least I can load only the maps I need for the areas and locations I will be traveling in.

    This GPS is amazing. I am running TomTom Navigator on my phone and I can't believe how accurate this is compared to my Microsoft GPS on streets and trips. It also works with all my other mapping programs to map out all the open unencrypted Wi-Fi spots while I am driving around Vancouver. I do a lot of driving between Richmond, Vancouver, Burnaby, Surrey, Langley and the Valley for work purposes so I can finally put some of the driving time to use.

    Maybe I'm talking out of my @ss here since I'm not familiar with the HTC TYTN but if it supports a bluetooth GPS Receiver, I'm left to assume that it would support the majority of generic bluetooth GPS receivers out there and not something specific for the HTC TYTN.

    Anyway, myself, I use the Holux GPSSlim240 GPS Receiver and it works just fine with my BB. I don't see why it wouldn't work with the HTC TYTN also or any other device that supports a bluetooth GPS receiver.
