Just bought a bluetooth gps unit ( solar powered !! ) from a chap in Hong Kong - thru E-bay ... took 1 week to arrive and works a treat - connects to my Nokia N95 and laptop with a few connection errors first .. Now just brilliant - sits on the dash in full sun and sends out that GPS stuff ... When its not locked onto tha laptop or N95 it closes down and charges up - you then have to switch it back on and away you go .. beats the old USB G-Mouse i used to have hanging out the window..

Just thought I'd pass the info on - Cost me $73.00 including postage to Melbourne ..

Doesn't your Nokia N95 already have an internal GPS?

Why do you need an another GPS for it?

I also bought one too - still picks up the satellites but the blutooth side has died after 2 days use - just after feedback provided - no use for anything now and the chinese seller from Hong Kong could not care less.

Buy O/S and you have no real recourse if something goes wrong.

Are u sure its died or just become unpaired.
Ive had a Globalstar BT338 for over a year and it works 99% of the time.
Sometimes it has a fit and needs to be paired with either the lappy or my Nokia N70 with TOMTOM.
Also find it needs to be turned on before I start Copilot up on the Lappy or the progam cant find it.
Is a minor problem with the software for the dongle I use in the lappy.
