Hi, just installed this on my iphone 3gs 3.1. tried switching the bluetooth stack & it always says, "error on startup, please try again". Also when i click about, it says "please switch on roqyBT to get the current version". Im trying to connect my 3gs to nokia gps dongle. Also is there any GPS signal quality difference between the iphone internal gps & ecternal gps receiver?

An iPhone yeah, but pointless on an iPod unless you have wifi around you

Why would you need WIFI if you have an application with full maps like WAZE, iGO, TOMTOM etc...

Exactly, but if you don't!

You don't need a full featured Car GPS for this. You could just use a much cheaper bluetooth gps receiver (with no screen). So, yeah, this IS really useful.

okay, i'll just do this and wait for the correction/explanation if one is in order: Wifi has nothing to do with this! GPS is available to the iPhone via an internal GPS chip. Now, GPS is available to the iPod Touch via an external GPS chip. The connection between the Touch & the external chip, ultimately (however the chip is housed & whatever is involved in enabling the chip to interact), is achieved via Bluetooth.
