In my quest to GPS enable the LG Vu I acquired a Holux M 1200 (http://www.holux.com/JCore/en/products/products_content.jsp?pno=227) from Amazon for $45.  LG Cell Phone Accessories

It’s around the size of a cigarette lighter. I had trouble getting most software to talk to it until I got Mobile Gmaps: http://www.getjar.com/products/8701/MobileGMaps

It’s working and does turn by turn directions a la google maps along with showing your location. It allows you to find a destination and plot route from your current position, which is really all I needed. LG Cell Phone Software

Just wanted to post this working setup to save people trouble. The M1200 comes with a mini usb charger which is also handy for my Sansa Clip, which I also use in the car. It is a 32 channel GPS and locks on really fast, even while sitting in my console, which has a handy cig lighter place to plug in the charger. LG-Vu info

I just paired it to the LG Vu using the bluetooth menu, then Mobile Gmaps was able to list it as a device under the GPS menu and connected right up.
Enjoy!
