    I use a generic BT Gps receiver I got off ebay, coupled with BB maps, no voice directions, but I find good enough

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ sounds great! Would you have OTA bbmaps?; I'd love to give it a go. A friend of mine is donating his tom tom bluetooth receiver since his mda compact has gps built in

    Re: sat nav for 8700g in the uk

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ ok I have the BT gps receiver and I have bb maps up and running with it but, I find that bb maps doesn't work like the other satnav prgrams, as it doesn't tell you where to turn but rather has an arrow that points you in the direction you want to go. I thought it would of had turn for turn directions
