I'm planning on getting GPS for my tC. I don't want too spend much, so I'm planning on just getting a receiver with Bluetooth. I have a Pocket PC with Bluetooth that I got from my last computer programming job, and I can use that as a monitor for it. I'm thinking about getting this: http://store.yahoo.com/semsons-inc/iblgpsre16ch.html It's only about $100. The only problem I'm seeing is where/how I'm going to mount the system. I can put the receiver in the compartment below the air conditioning, but I'm not sure how I'm going to mount the Pocket PC, especially since I want to be able to take it out when I get out of the car. I'm not very good with building stuff, so the only thing I can think of is to use velcro to mount the Pocket PC like this:


I know that would be a problem with openning the door, but I typically just use MP3 CDs, especially on long trips where I'd use the GPS, so that shouldn't really matter. I just don't think I'd like to have strips of velcro there though.

Does anybody have any ideas of how to mount it?

Thanks

Well i have a stand that mine sits in (ique 3600) and just put it in the center of the dash above the center air vents. I also thought about mounting it somewhere in that area though. I dont think velcro would be a good idea since it kinda just stands out a little too much.

The idea of velcro seems to be a bad one. I would stay away from any kind of adhesive backed product on visible surfaces of my car.

I am thinking about mounting mine like zolt. If you haven't gotten the software for your GPS yet, check out TomTom. Thats the one I use and so far I love it. Haven't gotten lost once. I use it in the US and in Europe.

Thanks for the help guys. I ordered a PDA mount, which seems to be the best way to mount my Pocket PC anywhere. I ordered a receiver that is similar to the one in the link, but it doesn't come with any software, so I'm still trying to find that. I looked at TomTom, but I can only seem to find software bundled with TomTom receivers. I found Destinator software by itself, but it's about $100.

Does anybody know where I can find cheaper software? The receiver is supposed to work with TomTom, Mapopolis, Destinator, and "many more".

Thanks
