Hi all.

Firstly, I am about to start walking to get fit but want to track my walks although I dont have any GPS equipment.

I am going to buy a GPS module and have already installed TB which seems to work fine.

Now... I have a Sony Ericsson k750i and wanted to know if TB does work ok?

I am not too concerned abot navigation but want software that will track were I walk from and to. Then I want to use the data to see my route on Google Earth.

Does it particularly matter what GPS module I choose to buy?

I would appreciate any advice to say whether or not TrekBuddy and a cheap GPS module will allow me to do this with my k750i.

Many many thanks in advance,
Will.

Pls read about it in TrekBuddy wiki

You should buy GPS BT module for pedestrian usage.
