Really, it's a toy I've thought about. I fancied the idea of getting a smart phone (time for a new phone anyway) and just buying something like tomtom mobile to load onto it (and use via wireless headphone, as you say). That would "only" mean buying the software (and a headpiece thingy, I suppose, but let's not split hairs)
But the tomtom software seems to be between versions (new version, 5, doesn't seem to be out yet, but works with lots of phones. Old version, 3, can be bought now but only claims to go with 3 phones. None of said phones has a radio, and if I'm going to get all this gizmisation then I'm blooming well going to be able to listen to The Archers with it).
I wondered if you'd ever used your phone to get navigation (if so, how, what software, was it any good, etc?), or if you had any top tips in general on wireless headthingies (are they all the same?).
I feel I'm coming on leaps and bounds in my theoretical acceptance that a phone can do more than make calls, but it's quite a big step for me.
I should probably be asking for help from someone's teenager.
...if you press it, they will come.
