I have just started using a Verizon wireless Pocket PC model VX6700 which is running Windows Mobile 5 and would like to purchase the software and hardware to use it as a simple GPS/Chart plotter.

So far I have found and started a 10 day free trial of Memory Map Navigator http://www.memory-map.com/home.htm and the embedded PPC Pocket Navigator seems to work pretty good.

I will need to purchase a GPS receiver and the BTT-338 seems to be recommended by the same site.

I also found the free navigation charts at
http://www.freeboatingcharts.com/destinations.cfm?destPack=CC&action=level1List
seem to work well with the above hardware and software.

I was hoping to get some "real world" input before purchasing the MMN software and the GPS receiver plus land navigation maps.

Is any one else using a Pocket PC w/ Blue Tooth GPS for navigation?

Thanks Mike for the new forum

Jay
