    WTT: Bluetooth GPS for USB GPS

    Been using a BT GPS forever (with Pocket PCs, smartphone, laptops, etc), but would like to switch to a USB one now that I'm starting my Carputer (which will go in my trunk - aka need a wired solution rather than BT).

    So I'm looking to trade my GlobalSat Bluetooth GPS + car charger (and I think I have a wall charger around here somewhere too) for a USB GPS.

    Would also sell for $90 shipped so I can buy a USB one.

    You'd need to use it with a product that already has bluetooth (all my devices mentioned - laptop, tablet pc, pocket pc, smartphone - had bluetooth built in), or you could get a USB bluetooth receiver ($15-20).

    What is the exact model number of the GlobalSat?
    How long does the battary charge last?
    How long have you had the unit for?
    Can you provide a picture?

    Would you be willing to do an even exchange for a Rikaline 6010 (USB)?

    1) BT308
    2) Not sure, never ran it dry (it obviously lasts through shorter trips close by when you're not sure where you're going, and for longer roadtrips I always run it off the cig lighter)
    3) A year or so, probably used it a total of .. 30 hours? between various roadtrips, etc. heh, kinda sad I've used it about 1 day out of the last 365 and it's sat in my glovebox the rest of the year
    4) I sure can, and will if there's interest in it.. but it's exactly like any pic you'll find online of the unit (example: http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/globalsat-bt308.php), in int shap, etc.
    5) I might, let me research it a bit.

    I'll trade you my Holux 210. It was only used for about 6 months and was mounted insid my car at all times. I will include the cd with the drivers.
