    I have the Blackjack and don't want to pay for the Telenav service through Cingular. What seems to be the best "all in one" package is the CoPilot Live 6 Smartphone, however for a bluetooth receiver and software it's $299, which seems really expensive.

    I was hoping there has to be some type of cheap GPS software that can do turn-by-turn, directions, automatic reroute and can pair with any bluetooth GPS receiver, like a Holux off of ebay or somewhere.

    Any ideas?

    why no telenav?

    9.99 unlimited routes. Using it on my work supplied blackjack (of course telenav was free as well) but i'd pay for it if i didnt work for cingular. Very good stuff.

    I already pay $33.99 for 450min plan + $33.99 for unlimited data. I'm trying to avoid paying another freaking $10 a month plus the upfront cost. I'd rather just pay a one time cost up front.

    Right now, I just use the google maps fix from howardforums.

    I use TomTom Navigator 6 on my phone (cingular 8525)

    Works good for me, i believe retail on it is like $299 though.
