can anyone tell me for sure whether or not you can use a Compact Flash GPS on a Dell Axim x50v? I am getting some conflicting info, one posts claims that the CF slot is only for memory and not other devices and Dell claims that you can use a CF GPS. The reason I ask is because my Holux GR271 CF GPS causes the dell Axim to freeze up completely so Im trying to figure out why.
Thank you for using the Dell Community Forum.
To be able to use the GPS receiver a Bluetooth serial connection must be setup on the Axim X50/X50v. Depending on the Axim X50/X50v model, either an external or internal Bluetooth connection must be setup. You cannot use a CF GPS on this unit.

Thanks for the response. Thats what I was afraid of and I already bought a CF GPS but will get a bluetooth one instead. So why no CF GPS on this unit? is the CF slot really only for memory upgrades? is it the same on the x51V I hope not because I just bought 8 of those
