I have a dconnex bluetooth gps that i picked up on ebay out of Singapore for $150au (I had to bid in euros to get around the reserve the guy had, which was about $220au)

I have found over 130 caches with it so I don't think accuracy is a problem with it.

I use a XDAII with OziCE and a mix of Melway, 1:25,000 maps.

There are a few pics of it in action in the logs here. ... ID=5221766

While these models are not the same they are similar in size and items in the package ... 38524&rd=1 ... 14016&rd=1

I use the Haicomm (303?) with Bluetooth Slipper (401?). The actual GPS is a CF card, so if the battery on the Bluetooth transmitter ever runs out (lasts about 7 hours, so not *really* an issue), you can unplug it from the bluetooth adaptor and plug it straight into your pda (provided you've got a cf slot).

The haicomm are available from Johnny Appleseed GPS, but can be gotten cheaper off of ebay from time to time.
