Palm and TomTom GPS Kit

Those of us with Treo models such as the 650, 700p, and 700w are no longer forced to search for stand-alone Bluetooth GPS receiver to turn a Palm smartphone into a car navigation tool. Palm has been working with the popular GPS hardware maker TomTom on the Palm GPS Navigator Smartphone Edition, which just became available for the latest Treo models. It includes every accessory a Treo owner needs to mount their phone in the car: a cradle, a charger, a Bluetooth GPS receiver and a 1GB SD card pre-loaded with TomTom's version 6 software (which isn't available anywhere else). This latest package has some very appreciated new features such as the abillity to plan trips based on arrival time and constant monitoring of speed limits to prevent that trip being cut short by the police. The GPS Navigator package ships for $299 without a phone.
