Summary: Probably just as well that this unit has been discontinued... I never really managed to get it to work well with an iPod Touch. Relegated to the "useless gadget drawer". No – I would not recommend it. There are MUCH better products and options available now as equivalents.
Summary: I bought this for a trip I was going to take in order to make my Ipod GPS capable, it worked wonderfully at first. Halfway through my three week trip it started losing signal easily. It was only about two months old.
Summary: Terrible, awful, despicable product. I bought it years ago and it was junk then. I cannot imagine anyone is thinking of buying it now, since most phones now come with GPS, and this product has been discontinued by the manufacturer.
Summary: The only thing this was good for was the case. The GPS was glacial, and I had to remove the case whenever I wanted to charge the touch as it lengthened the distance for the jack and wouldn't charge that way. A total wast of money.
Summary: The usefulness of this dock is limited to the quality of the apps you run with it. That said, satellite acquisition is slow. The internal battery is nice but only runs the GPS receiver in GPS mode. The unit would be fine in a car but not great for walking or anything active.
