    How to put GPS on personal organizer? A cry out for sticky!

    I spent quite some time searching this forum and still can't figure out some basics involved in putting GPS on personal organizer. A sticky with basic OS requirments, software and hardware would be great. I can volunteer my time to compose one, but I lack the knowledge at this stage. So please, help me out!

    I have a Sony Clie personal organizer (model PEG-N610C) running Palm OS v.4.0.

    Question: What one needs to run GPS on it.

    Thanks in advance for your input guys.

    You need a GPS receiver and software to tanslate the GPS data and plot it on a map.
    Do some GOOGLING. It took me a whopping 30 seconds to find a dozen or so packages online with GPS receivers & software for your N-series Clie.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    I am guilty of overcomplicating things. After reading these forums I was under impression that things are much tougher than I thought. I will do more research on the Internet on this topic and will make some kind of list of basic concepts. Let me know guys if this is worth it to cut down possibly on future newb questions or was it only me who turned out to be a big noob....

    In my experience, when one person asks theres always 10 others with the same question but just haven't asked. If you want to make the efort to put together a FAQ, then do it. If it has enough useful information, the mods will usually sticky it. Otherwise it will live here forever and will get turned up when someone searches for the topics it contains.

    I use a bluetooth gps for my car and my pda. You can also find compact flash based gps devices. Most of the devices can be bought with some sort of software for them
