    something with bluetooth so you can use it with a cell that also has Bluetooth if you ever go down that road

    i don't like the bluetooth ones.

    I have a handheld magellin with usb that I can take camping, or plug into the lappy. If you don't care about that, just get a basic usb one like the microsoft one.

    the handheld one with usb sounds cool.. i dont like bluetooth ones.. so you can plug the handheld into the pc and all of the gps data will go through it? can you link me to one?

    Really? I love my 8800 - granted it's internal but one less thing I have to carry around
