    Any Reviews or opinions on this GPS Unit for the 1st & 2nd gen Iphones?
    It is a newly developed unit for the Iphone .....

    I am tempted, but I am hesitant till it is compatibly with other GPS apps.
    It seems to work with xGPS software developed by Xwaves

    It looks good and small, but I would like to hear from some current users of this product.

    Anyone???

    Hmmm this unit may be too new .....

    I was hoping someone had an intelligent opinion ...
    This would be a God sent GPS for us 1st & 2nd gen iphones, if it works.

    I received this from the IGPS 360 support concerning the compatibility of other apps:

    "Thank you for your interest in the iGPS360 module.

    Quite a few AppStore apps can be used with the iGPS360 module now as well.
    You will need to install GSPSerial on a jailbroken phone through for it to work.
    Btw. xGPS is free and also available through Cydia on a jailbroken phone.
    Please see the following links as well:

    And the iGPS360 does work with Sygic NAM which I just purchased and tried out.
    It does however not work with the built-in Google maps app as this uses a private Apple API (but xGPS is better anyway).

    Let me know if you have any further questions.

    I think I may just bite the bullet and order this receiver.
