    Treo 650 for navigation software only

    Can you use the Treo for a navigation system only? I don't use it as a phone anympre but I was wondering if I could use it as a nav suystem without the phone aspect being activated.

    You should be able to use it with a Bluetooth GPS receiver and software like TomTom Navigator 6. Due to the 650's limited dbcache, though, you might have some difficulty running that software.

    You should be able to use all of the Palm OS functions without the phone being activated.

    As an aside, I run TomTom Navigator 6 on my 650. Every once in a blue moon, I get a "not enough dbcache" error - but it is nothing that hitting the reset button won't fix.

    Thanks. My TomTom 6 will be here soon and I'll be glad not to have to buy another device.

    You have a Bluetooth GPS receiver already, right?? If not, you'll need one of those, too. I recommend the Freedom Mini-GPS Keychain receiver. I use one with my 700p and TomTom Nav 6. Works great!
