I would like to keep my CF slot for storage but it doesn't seem like there are any other options to connect to a GPS for my e800 besides CF. I might consider an expensive bluetooth SD card but they're hard to find. Anyone know where I can get one that's compatible with the e800? AFAIK the e800 (a north american model) has WiFi but NOT bluetooth already so I would have to add it on.

So, what other options are available for my e800 besides CF? Can't WiFi connect to a GPS? how about a wired solution?

The easiest way would indeed be a SD BT card, but from the specs it looks like the synch port does also have a serial interface so theoretically it should also be possible to connect a wired receiver. Personally I would go with the BT connection, though.

Thanks for your reply. Is there any reason why bluetooth is better besides the lack of wires?

If you compare BT to CF there are two more advantages

- free placement of antenna in car
- GPS receiver has its own power supply , doesn't affect Pocket PC's battery life (assuming that BT is set to low range and consumes less than CF)
