    Before you buy any test out google maps. Unless of course you want an external GPS. I am sure there are also other free ones you could try. Telenave works really well for me but if you just want it for one month or for one trip I would try this. Unless your 8320 doesnt have built in gps of course then you would have to have a reciever. If I am wrong on this someone please feel free to correct me. Which I know you will.

    littleacorn, as moderncowboy said, you will need a GPS puck/receiver as the 8320 does NOT have built-in GPS.

    I have an 8310 which does have the built-in GPS, so someone who uses a puck will have to offer their knowledge as to what you should get.

    Good luck!

    any GPS puck will work. has to be bluetooth.

    rogro: that wasnt my question. my question is does it have to be a telenav receiver (i.e. the one it instructs you to purchase kindly as you're obtaining your free trial) or can it be any others as i have enountered widely available online cheaper than 99 dollars?

    moderncowboy: give me more credit than that. i know my phone doesnt have gps, hence the question and im not interested in free. they dont give turn by turn directions and i personally dont have time to be looking down at my phone, i want to hear it as im getting lost in the city of san diego.

    cherrichiodo: thanks for answering my question. i love telenav. i had it with my previous 8800 and its convenient when you cant be peering down at the phone. i just hear ANDRE, screaming it over my crazy tunes. good times. but yes, you answered it dead on. exactly what i needed to know.

    I will give you all the credit I was not totally sure if it built in or not. Therefore I gave a few options that came to mind. I am glad cherri was able to answer your question and help you get it worked out.

    Go easy on the cowboy. It was me who told you the 8320 doesn't have GPS. And please forgive me for not clearly understanding your question.
