An Into Tomorrow listener submitted the following question!

Q: I have a Palm Lifedrive and I would like to know if I can add software or upgrade it to have the capability of a GPS. It would also be great if it could handle voice commands.

A: There are a wide variety of Bluetooth enabled GPS receivers on the market which can be easily paired with the Palm Lifedrive. All of them have different map systems, software, and features. You will need to do additional research to determine which system is easy for you to use. pdaBuzz.com has a review of Mobile Crossing Bluetooth GPS which mentions use with the Lifedrive. It also warns that the GPS should be the only device paired with the Lifedrive due to limitations in Palm’s implementation of Bluetooth. The Garmin Mobile 10 for PDAs is also compatible with PDAs including the Lifedrive.
