    Hi,

    I'm very interested in having GPS on my iPod, especially since I have the new TomTom software.

    I did some searching and found these products:
    - Tomtom bluetooth GPS Receiver
    - Holux GPSlim 240, M-1000 etc.
    - Orange Gadgets iGPS360
    - Several car kits from TomTom, Magellan and Dual

    I'm looking for a good quality receiver, but affordable- so certainly not above 100 euro. If anyone can advice me any of the mentioned products or another one, I'd like to hear!

    hi I use a holux gps slim 240 with roqybt and tomtom and it works great. and most of the other gps apps find it. You have to have the bluetooth off in setting and the location services on to make it work ok

    Thanks for your response!
    Anyone else agrees that the Holux 240 is a good choice?
    I'm especially interested in either the Holux M-1000 or the M-1200.
    Can one of them be adviced?

    wow, i never even thought about gps attachments for the ipod touch untill i read this. Thats pretty cool.
    one question though, do they work completly with the map.app? or do you still need wifi?

    Holux also make the GPSlim 236, it too is a bluetooth GPS unit, and uses the same battery as old Nokia mobiles (Cheap to replace if they go down).

    It was a really well reviewed reciever wehn it came out, but its a couple of years older, so well worth a look as its a bit cheaper (and it uses the Sirf Star III chipset, so its accurate, and good in urban canyons / high rise cities)

    Do all the Bluetooth GPS Receiver options require you to jailbreak your Touch first (i.e. roqybt)? Any risks with that on 3rd Generation? And would it work w/ google maps or no?

    Roqy and TomTom

    Can anybody tell me if roqy bt works with TomTom 1.1. I get satellites on roqy but TT will not fix gps position. People say it works with TT 1.2

    yes you need to jailbreak in order to install roqygps and no, google maps won't work, cause it's loading the images over wifi/3g..
    gps only shows your current position..

    So can anyone confirm that the Holux M-1000 or the M-1200 will work with the touch?
