    You have to use a serial cable, not USB. The NMEA standard for GPS data does
    not support USB as of yet. I found this out with my i88s.

    I think you're highly mistaken on this. The i205, in the GPS menu, under
    interface, has the NMEA Out option just like the i730 does. Just because
    the i205 does not have java does not mean it does not support "spitting" the
    gps info out the bottom data connector.

    That is good to know, I was curious if I would be able to use my usb cable
    or not. Good thing I have serial and usb cables :-)

    Re: Gps i205

    I recently purchased an i205 for use primarily as a way to get my pda
    on the internet while mobile and in remote locations. The other main
    function I wanted it for was for GPS with TomTom2 and IPAQ HP2215
    using a supplynet or gomadic cable. When I purchased
    it, the salesman said it was gps enabled right out of the box and I'd
    be good to go. After getting home and not being able to recieve any
    position data, I called the customer service number where a very rude
    woman said that I needed a 59.99 a month "special" package and it
    would also require some sort of set up fee. I then went into a
    different nextel store where the two salesmen behind the counter were
    at least semi-honest with me and said they had no clue but my best
    option would be to sign up for all sorts of various packages and one
    of them might work.

    If anyone has dealt with using their Nextel phone for GPS, I would
    appreciate any info on which plans I should look into. Do I need a
    telenav plan? Do i need the total connect data package? the 1mb or the
    ..5? Is there a better plan? Would going with someone else
    (att,sprint,verizon) besides nextel be even easier and cheaper?

    Thanks, calling and talking to these people in person is like beating
    a dead horse to get directions to the local library. No two people
    tell you the same, and most of the time they will just smile and ask
    for a credit card while saying yes to any question you have, including
    "will it do my laundry and end world hunger?

    Make sure you have a SERIAL cable from phone to IPAQ
    Make sure (on the phone) that nmea out is enabled
    make sure you enable PRIVACY UNRESTRICTED in the GPS menu
    The gps data will then flow to the IPAQ provided the Software and hardware
    are able to make contact with the phone
    Study the above link
