I'm considering buying TTN5 for normal use in UK and Europe. But I'm also off driving in Alaska this summer. As far as I can see, there are no maps for Alaska ... can I just use the software as a standard GPS receiver so I at least know roughly where I am? Or would I be better to buy a dedicated GPS receiver?

Appreciate any help.

If you really needed the Sat Nav, then you may as well go for the Blue Tooth GPS. You can put the receiver in your pocket (according to some people on this forum) and use the PDA as a standard GPS unit which talks to the GPS receiver via Blue Tooth (aka BT).

I've also seen GPS receivers that plug straight into the top of the PDA so less to carry, but I don't know how these compare.

You may need to use some extra software too for the GPS only part, although I've seen some great free software on this site in the downloads section.

If you don't need Sat Nav, then you may as well go for a cheap GPS only unit.

I hope this helps.....
