I've got one of those! Unfortunately I don't have a Pandora. I does work with my E63 running Symbian (a favour of Linux) with no problems at all.


I don't see any reason that it wouldn't work with a Pandora, but I can't give you a definitive yes (yet).

Well someone appears to have gotten this to work in Ubuntu 7.10 without to much work and the gpsd daemon used appears to have an arm port so you might be in luck but I'll let someone with more experience with the Pandora say for sure.

The Freedom keychain GPS should work fine as it's about as standard as can be (standard chipset, one of the good ones, speaks NMEA etc.) And people use it with e.g. the Nokia N800. That price is not the cheapest I've seen though. Other good ones are e.g. the one I have, Holux M1200, also keychain-sized and long-lived (>20 hours active use between charges). I paid 27 quid.


In general, look for BT GPS receivers with SiRF Star III or MTK chipsets and you'll be fine.
