Confused over GPS

Confused over GPS

I know the 8310 has GPS while the 8300 does not. However, I see some folks claim they get map help using Google Maps on an 8300. Is this correct? I really don't need true GPS since I have that in my car.

Re: Confused over GPS

Google Maps will run on the 8300, but will only give you an approximate location based on the nearest cell tower unless you use a bluetooth GPS receiver.

Thanks! Does anyone know if the Garmin C550 GPS will connect via Bluetooth to provide satellite connectivity?

Re: Confused over GPS

The Bluetooth on the standalone Garmin GPS units is only used for hands free calling, POI dialing and address book sync. Here's a list of supported features for the 8300.
