Is there somewhere a list of compatible CF GPS cards for Zaurus ? I am looking over ebay and sometimes some GPS cards go out for only 30$ but I don't grab them out of fear of not working under Zaurus (I use cacko 1.23 on a 3100) I know that the software support is very weak and poor, but even them I'm interested in the GPS card as I know is only a matter of time before someone adapts Tom Tom Go or something like that.

So my question is, can I grab any GPS CF card and use it or I need to check for special drivers for the zaurus in wich case where can I find a compatible list?

thank to all.

I am looking for a gps solution that is external to the zaurus (mainly not to use the battery to much) and also don't want usb/serial cables hanging about.

Is it possible to use a motorola A1200 phone? This has gps build in and it would be good to have a shared device for net connection/GPS.

On a related point, is it possible to have two simultaneous bluetooth connections?
ie; one for the net (GPRS) and one for GPS? I use a socket rev K CF bluetooth card with a sony ericsson v600i at the moment.

Is there such a thing as a dual bluetooth card with independent channels... is this at all compatible with the Zaurus (3100 with pdaXrom)?

As always, I'm very happy to compile howtos and documents if I can get this working, just need a hand with the first part of the problem....

My aim would be to have GPS with something like gpsdrive that could download maps on the fly and report my position back to a server.

Thanks for your ideas
