I am new to gps and intend to set up satnav in my car with iPaq 3970-TTN2 and a mouse gps receiver. Is there any advantage for the receiver to be NMEA + SiRF compliant?

It's not necessary to have a SiRF based receiver for TomTom Navigator. However, the SiRF chipsets are one of the best on the market at present. Both the GPS mouse and the Bluetooth GPS that TomTom themselves offer use SiRF II family GPS chipsets.



However, many here successfully use TomTom Navigator with other GPS hardware, including GPS mice based on other chipset, and handheld GPS receivers with a serial output.

99% of the Pocket PC based GPS Receivers are also NMEA and SiRF compliant. Only handhelds like Garmin's and Magellan's don't outwardly support SiRF.
