    Don't think so rits. The 8100 doesn't have GPS software. You can get Google Maps and use that to triangulate your position. It's neat but it's not GPS.

    You can use TrekBuddy, but you need an bluetooth GPS puck, and you have to make your own maps (easy enough to do with Googleak). It's also not a turn by turn directions type GPS - it'll just plot your position on the map you created. Comes in handy for those who have to travel to areas where there is no data coverage.

    RedNightHawk's right in that you can always buy a GPS puck, use it in conjunction with BT, your data plan and your 8100 for a display - no voice instructions though and you really would need someone to observe the instructions while you drive. I tried if a short while some time back and didn't find it very useful.
