    Bluetooth Wifi for XV6600

    PPC Friends,

    I did a little searching in this forum and didn't see anything on the subject. I have the blueooth gps reciever for my ppc and started to wonder if there's a wifi bluetooth reciever for this device?

    Should I go with the Socket WiFi SDIO Card or if bluetooth does exist for
    a wifi reciever would this suffice?

    Please advise.

    Thank You,

    Tvos

    Not sure what your question is - the 6600 has builtin BlueTooth and an aftermarket SDIO WiFi card can be plugged in, but WiFi and BlueTooth are two different technologies with very different purposes - BlueTooth is generally used for very short distances; WiFi travels over much longer distances at a much greater speed. You're going to have to be clearer on exactly what you're trying to do. - sheureka

    Sheureka,

    I am looking for a wifi receiver that will allow me to use bluetooth to communicate through the xv6600 just as I do with gps.

    That would be a great thing. You wouldn't have to pull your SD storage card every time you wanted to use WiFi.

    I believe that is question has been asked here before, though, and as I recall, the consensus was that there is no such animal.

    Duct tape it to one of these:

    and you should have something that'll do what you want.
