Hi Steve,
I have posted before about this quite a bit.  But Wayfinder is the only
solution I know of that is accessible with Talks.  Route 66, Tomtom, and the
others don't work, because they don't have a non-graphical interface, and
everything is map-based, but not text-mode based.  Wayfinder has Classic
mode, where a lot of info, but not all of it, is text-based.  Currently, you
can't find out where you are, unless you create a route, but this is no big
deal, because you more often than not know where you are going <Smile>.  It
is not as "chatty" as the specialist blind products, but you can ask Talks
to give you more information.  All in all, I love Wayfinder.  It is not
perfect, but it suits me.
And in case anyone asks, no, I don't currently sell it.  But you can find
out about it on http://www.wayfinder.com, where you can also download a
trial version of the software.  At least then you can try it, even without a
GPS receiver, in offline mode.
All the best

OK, I'll try this again.  I am considering getting the GPS module to use
with my 6680 and talks.  If anyone has used GPS with talks before, I'd be
grateful for any comments as to how successful it is, it's accessibility and
functionality.  What software are you using on the phone? Way finder?  Are
there any alternatives?  And how much would it cost?  Software and the GPS
receiver?  Will the tomtom work?
