    Just thought I'd say quickly that I installed roqyGPS and Navigon and my Touch is now a great GPS! I had an old bluetooth GPS receiver and it works really great. Let me know if you have any questions, but the installation and setup was relatively painless.

    I have a Holux GPSlim that I bought maybe 2 years ago for my Dell Axim x51v. I had to look for like 3 hours to finally find it again. But you can find 'em on ebay for around $30-$40.

    Oh, so we can have a GPS with our iPod? Not sure the thing you've talked about you bought, but do I need to buy an attachement for having a GPS?

    Yeah, you need a bluetooth gps receiver. Holux and Globalsat are the two main manufacturers and like I said, they go for between $25-$50 on ebay. Mine is about the size of a usb stick so I can keep it on my keychain.

    I don't want to pay another $200 for a stand alone golf gps.
