Does the 8300 have built in GPS? I know that the 8800, 8820 and 8310 do.

No GPS on the 8300 (unless you want to buy a Bluetooth GPS reciever.) If you get the 8310 then the GPS is free but for the voice prompted, turn-by-turn directions application it's usually a $9.95/mo fee. TeleNav is one app that works well ($9.95 fee.)

Hmmm...since the 8320 doesn't come with built-in GPS, might have to spring for the Bluetooth add-on.
