Not sure if what you are looking for is possible.
First most if not all of the GPS mobile software is ONLY made for the bb and not a pc.
Second there is lots of GPS software that is made for your laptop.

The only one I can think of for pc is Microsoft Trips.

But I think you want to be able to use both the phone and pc at the sametime right?? If so I think you are SOL on this. Since your GPS bt can only talk to one device at a time, since there is only one b/t radio in the device.

I doubt if that's possible, but I don't use GPS myself. The software that comes with GPS pucks will never work the the pearl and vice versa.

How is the response/refresh time? I was looking at getting the TeleNav GPS unit and subscribing.
