First, thanks ever so for what I felt was an excellent review, very informative.

As I already have a very nice Bluetooth GPS (Fortuna clip-on) I'm keen to know if TomTom 5 will be available to buy as a software only purchase i.e. without a GPS unit of any kind to run TT5 on my Palm T3?

We keep bashing them about that, but obviously they are currently more interested in selling bundles. Time will tell...

i've been going through tomtom's support site and found this:

tomtom support wrote:
TomTom Navigator 5 will also be available as a CD-based software only product. So, if you already own a GPS unit and memory card then you can still experience all the great features and most up-to-date maps of TomTom navigation.


they already have tomtom navigator 5 as a choice of product in their web site's support section.

I believe that this is because the US runs a different operation. Their product range is different etc. They do lag behind Europe in what is available for use out there.
