    I heard the Orange GPS unit was availible but I don't know of anyone who did a review on it using xGPS and its cached maps and said it was any good. Does anyone have the Orange GPS or any other GPS unit with the software and how good is it really?

    There *are* GPS units for the iPod Touch, I've seen them, they plug into the expansion port and use software you can get on Cydia. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with them, like, are they any good? Do they work properly?

    I have had the iGPS360 from orange gadgets only for a few days. I love this little thing. Works well with xGPS. I've been getting maybe 1 meter to 5meter accuracy. Haven't tried the point to point directions yet.

    Any word on battery life? Does it kinda drain it all when you use it?

    yeah it drains a bit. but if you use insomnia and turn the screen off while you aren't looking at it (I use the logging function quite often), the drain is not that noticeable. Or just unplug the module when not in use.
