  • Bluetooth or wired? no idea what kind/type to get

    I've read over some of the FAQ. but i still don't know what gps to get. I e-mailed a company a few days ago, here in Canada, and they recommended the Holux GPSlim240. Anyone have luck with this baby? I'm not really interested in taking it with me. i want to connect it and forget about it.

    Will having the bluetooth cause interferece? gety 'iffy' reception? I also want something discreet I can hopefuly tuck away somewhere.

    Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Get wired.
    Far less hassles.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

      That's what I was thinking. What do you think of this model? Holux GR-213 USB SiRF Star III Waterproof GPS.

      Are there any gps models that can be powered via a usb? The above Holux model is powered via the car power plug.

        I have used both Bluetooth and wired GPS. You will be happier with wired. The BU-353 is very popular.

          sounds like wired is right for you.
          let us know what you decide and how its working out.

            Wired for sure..... my system wont go into standby using the bluetooth.... keeps locking it up.

            I plan to switch it when I can afford the cord for it. I am really happy with the Holux GPSlim 236. Works as both BT and Wired

              unless you like to move the GPS around from vehicle to vehicle, wired is the way to go.
