Hi Rusty, Monty, and list,
executive products makes a carrying case for the Holux 236. I've gotten other cases from them, for my nokia 6682 and my book port, and they are both very nice, so I'm sure the case for the Holux will be as well. Their website is at
I do have a couple questions. Is an 800 kb point file considered overly large, or is it closer to average? It took several hours to import into my phone, but once it finished loadstone seems to be behaving well. Also, what kind of points are appropriate for the point share database, meaning what sort of establishments? I've already got all the intersections in Des Moines, and i've been adding restaurants and businesses as I go to them. Is this the sort of thing people want in the database?
Thanks for answering this newbie's questions.

Regarding your import, the beeps are completely normal and are a very
indication that things are still working. If you are importing the entire
state of California I would imagine it could take several hours -
especially if you are using an older slower phone.
It is also normal for people to end up with GPS receivers with a range of
accessories. Sometimes they come with a case/clip/slap and sometimes not.
The Holux GR236 is a SiRF Star III GPS receiver which means it is quite
sensative, so you can probably carry it in a pocket. That is what I
normally do. It is possable that you will have to keep it in the open for
the first minute while it is acquiring a signal but even that is unlikely.
Best way is to experiment!
