    I use this when I'm out and about (not in my car). It plugs into usb (for charging) and mine came with a 12V-usb converter.

    I know it works with windows mobile, but I'm not sure about RIM stuff.

      thanks!
      it should work with my phone since its bluetooth enabled and thats an industry standard.

      waiting a month or two to buy a new car to start setting up a carputer, finally.

        Be aware that bluetooth functionality from many phones & PDAs is limited to audio devices like headsets and car kits.
        Before you drop the money for a BT GPS unit, I'd verify with RIM that a BT GPS will work with your Blackberry.

        Good luck.
        Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
        How about the Wiki?
