Just theorising really but I'm thinking of upgrading my Garmin Etrex Summit to Bluetooth. Here are some features:



I'm impressed by the 30hrs life of the Navman

I prefer to use recharegable replaceable (e.g. AAA) batteries

I like the prospect of using it as a standalone GPS unit with display.



Anyway, just wondering how long I'm likely to have to wait until my 'ideal GPS' is released. An updated BT Etrex would probably do the trick.

I'm surprised that none of the major players i.e. Garmin, Magellan etc have produced a standalone Bluetooth GPS as yet. Let's hope that they are in the pipeline because there is growing demand for such a device and it would surely be a simple matter to make an eTrex with a BT unit inside.
