    Re: Google Maps 1.5.1 with bluetooth GPS support

    I upgraded to 1.5.1 and am using my HoLux GPSlim236. Has anyone had the error about exception timeout with GoogleMaps_8700?

    I keep getting it when it tries to 'follow me' via GPS and update the map... even at walking speeds.

    BBMaps works fine when following me, either at walking or car speeds.

    Anyone else?

    Re: Google Maps 1.5.1 with bluetooth GPS support

    What GPS puck are you guys using? I'm actually traveling right now with a band and it would be so sweet if I could buy one at a store somewhere on the way. Could anyone recommend a unit that works with google maps and can be found at any brick and mortar store between Minneapolis, St. Louis, Omaha, and Dubuque? I'm sure that finding one while traveling will be tough, any suggestions or ideas are welcome.
    Thanks!

    God bless Cingular (even though I'm on Tmobile). The Merle Hay Mall in Des Moines had a Globalsat bt359 for $105. Gotta wait until the hotel tonight to give it an 8 hour charge, but I'm stoked at the prospect of GPS navigation for the rest of the tour.

    If anyone's got pointers for me on that unit, let 'em fly!

    Is it possible, that the new version for the 8800 is lacking the GPS support, even for a BT-GPS?

    Re: Google Maps 1.5.1 with bluetooth GPS support

    I'm not typically one to extoll the virtues of a consumer product, but the new google maps with gps support is so incredibly awesome I can hardly stand it. I'm in a touring band and we have used the crap out of it. We can use the "Find Business" feature to lock in on the club and then just "Start Directions" from wherever we are. It's also awesome for finding breakfast joints, gas stations, etc. Surprise road construction has been easily navigated around. For most cities you can even view traffic information, (though I think there's a little glitch in the menu--it always says 'hide traffic'). It even works pretty well when you're walking around on foot. Not only is it incredibly handy it's very fun. The one-time $100 bucks for the GPS has easily been paid for in not expending gas chasing all over strange cities looking for venues. If you are someone who travels at all you will absolutely love it.

    Re: Google Maps 1.5.1 with bluetooth GPS support

    Having issues with my puck as well. I can connect to BB MAPS and Google, however I cannot get a signal lock and the moment it can get any type of signal from satellite, I get an error message.

    Im using a Pharos BT puck
