    I want the Archos 7. Sadly it does not have GPS. I was thinking if I upgrade it to 2.2 and get the google apps can I use google maps as GPS? Is it possible to tether the Archos 7 to my rooted Droid running 2.2? So that I can use the GPS in my car?;)

    Better question What don't I own, Oh a generic APAD
    Quite simply no, You are frozen on 1.5 on version 1 A7HT and 2.1 on Version 2 A7HT. There may be a future community build for Version 2, but it has just come out. Version 1 is locked to the Android version due to the processor. The Version 1 if you have it should be returned if that is what you want from the device. This device was End of Life as of last year. Version 2 can load Google Apps including GApps. But not sure if you can tether it to a BT based GPS.
