    I install my USB GPS deeppppp inside the dashboard next to the firewall.
    When was the last time I remove it? Never.
    Well, how often you are going to use GPS on your PDA? If you are going to use it like couple times a month then get the BT.

    Marvin Hlavac - Poss may look at one of those 236's - Do you get the USB cable with it ? Can you place an external areial on it ?

    The reason for this is I because I am thinking of been able to leave the external one on place in the car and been able to take the unit out when needed

    Thanks

    Sorry for the delay in answering ;-) (We have just moved to a new house and there was verry little time to go on the Internet.)

    1. The USB cable that comes in the package is only good for charging the unit via USB (if that's what you want). To actually use the 236 as a GPS mouse, one needs to order the optional USB cable, which I believe is $19.95.

    2. Yes, it does have external antenna connector. The optional external antenna is also if I recall correctly around $19. I use the external antenna as well.

    I'd recommend ordering the 236, the optional USB cable, and the external antenna all at the same time from one source, to make sure you get the correct items ;-)
