Has anyone tried this? It's got the features I've been looking for-- GPS guidance through your car's speakers. Just wondering how the GPS is...

I've not tried it, but be aware of one thing... The GPS connection and the Handsfree connection are completely separate.

So, for example, if you use an ipaq, you can pair it twice, once for the GPS, and once for the speakers - it'll ring the phone, you press green, and then it will give you directions through the speakers.

However, as I understand it, whilst this is going on you can't receive any voice calls...

Alternatively, if you have a Nokia phone (3650, 6600, 7610, etc.) and want to use it with either Wayfinder or TomTom for Smartphones (once released) - you would be able to pair the phone for GPS, but then you cannot pair the phone to use the Car Kit (for voice calls or for the GPS directions) as the phone only supports 1 active bluetooth connection at a time.

However, Parrot claim that the P900 with Wayfinder should work fine, as the phone supports multiple bluetooth connections at the same time.

So, if you want to use it to provide GPS and let the PDA use it's own speaker for directions you're fine - otherwise you might find the product a little limiting.
