You will have to buy Garmin Mobile XT which is preloaded on a microSD card (with miniSD and standard SD card adapters) that includes Garmin navigation software compatible with the Palm Centro and the Treo 680, 700 series, 750 and 755p series smartphones.

You will need to buy Garmin Mobile XT Navigational software available in uSD in order to use our maps here with your Holux.
Please read our wiki section on more about this here : http://www.malsingmaps.com/wiki/index.p ... lsing_maps

Free download of Garmin Mobile XT if you have a Garmin GPS puck here

As a Treo user, let me advise you against this. The Treo has limited memory and is prone to crashes / hang during an incoming call. It is much worse if you got too many applications loaded in internal memory :thumbsdown:

Furthermore, the screen is so tiny, making viewing landmarks difficult.

You are better off getting a dedicated PND or upgrade your phone.

My Treo is now just a glorified Diary / DataBase library reference unit and simple phone.

I agree! I gave up trying to use Garmin Mobile XT with my Treo 680 because of screen size and frequent freezes. Now I'm a happy user of the gigantic screen on a Nuvi 5000. (I hate growing old! :( )
