Hi Martin,

It works quite well with Wayfinder.  It gives you POI information, but not
as you pass the POI, unfortunately.  It doesn't call it points of interest
though, it calls it favourites.  I think it gives you more info graphically,
but that doesn't work for us, so it's not bad, but not 100 percent
accessible.

For costs, look around, as there are many places that sell Wayfinder, but I
don't sell it yet.

All the best

Hi Steve

How well does Wayfinder work with Talks.  Also, what kinds of information
can it give you?  Can it for example give you Point of interest information?
Lastly, what are the costs?

Thanks

Hi Steve,

The Fortuna Clipon GPS Receiver is good, along with Wayfinder.
http://www.expansys.com does both, as separate items.

All the best

Steve, on a slightly different point, can you suggest a GPS unit which will
work with my 6260?  Also, where would I be able to get it from?

Many thanks

Steve
