Is any particular GPS receiver recommended? Or do they all pretty much do the same job to the same quality?
I've come across one which seems 'discreet' but dont know about the brand
thanks for any info/help

SirfStar III is generally considered to be the best, so look for something that mentions that
This is the one I use:
Sorry, I'm not very clued up on tom tom/gps. What exactly is SirfStar III?
In general will any gps receiver work with the Touch Plus/Dual? Or do I have to find one that says it is specifically compatible with this handset?
My understanding is that the SirfStar III is the chipset/antenna - basically it uses less power and has excellent reception.
On my touch dual i use Co-Pilot 7, with the co-pilot GPS unit - this is a SirfStar III unit. It's fantastic, locks on in seconds, and can be used as a total replacement for my old tom tom car unit.
I use a Brodit pro clip and Herbert Richter mount kit for in car use, and its superb.
Am I right in saying that if I'm using the fone as a gps/tom tom device then I pretty much cant use other features on it at the same time? e.g. listen to music?
At first I thought it was a good (and cheaper) way of using the tomtom system but now I'm thinking I might get fone calls and wont be able to use my touch plus for music because tomtom will be working on it. Have you guys found this to be a problem?
