    Hey people,
    I currently own a 2G iPhone.
    In addition to this,I'm currently testing out a HTC Magic to meet my specific requirement but am also considering upgrading to the 3G iPhone.

    I participate in long distance runs and I like to have my music playing when I'm out running.
    I usually do this with the Motorola HT820 headset.
    I'm also interested in tracking my runs live with applications like RunKeeper (or alternatives). I understand that these applications are more accurate with the GPS.

    Therefore, I would like to know if anyone has tried using the GPS and A2DP with music together and whether the 3G iPhone is capable of handling the load. The HTC Magic does this but it does struggle and the music drops out intermittently.

    Thank you!

    It is supposed to be fixed in 3.1 but if you use GPS with a bluetooth headset, you will get pauses like a CD skipping. It has happened with Nike+ and RunKeeper.

    I'm using MotionX-GPS right now and just sticking with my wired headset until the issue is fixed.

    I got the 3G iPhone yesterday.
    I tried using RunKeeper with a podcast playing. At first, there was some skipping and then the audio stopped altogether.
