    It works! Money well spent. Now can someone recommend a windshield holder for my Nook?

    That's really cool, but maybe too many gadgets to bring in the car at the same time...

    That is pretty cool but it does seem a little excesive. I mean, if you have a phone with turn by turn nav doing a few extra steps to get the nook set up seems like a watse. Until a car dock comes out for the nook you could always make the wife hold it! lol

    How do you sleep at night? ;/

    Only if you want to have your nook broken across your head.

    I already connect Nook to my symbian phone to get internet access at work .only thing missing now is to find a way to do that for GPS.
    BT connection still seems the best way though as I already own an external receiver .
    Ndrive is waiting ..

    I stumbled upon this app yesterday and that was exactly my thought. I was actually planning on creating such an app but no need to now.

    I tested this app over the weekend. The turn by turn google nav was awesome on a big screen.

    hmm -if i read this correctly, unless your phone supports infrastructure or hot spot, you need to enable adhoc on the nook - can someone verify?

    I have never "enabled" adhoc. I just use my access point on my Vibrant.
