I just posted saying that I thought bluetooth would be pretty good for a
wireless connection to a GPS receiver. A connection to a bluetooth headset
could be kinda nifty too. However, I only have experience with one bluetooth
device... a headset that does give me trouble from time to time when my cell
phone decides to not talk to it any more. When that happens, I have to fight
with it for a while to get it going again. I have been kind of assuming that
my particular bluetooth / cell phone combination was quirky, but maybe they
all are. Bluetooth sounds good in theory, but it should work as well as it 
is supposed to work.
