xv6800 as hand held GPS

I want to use my old xv6800 (VZW version, although that doesn't really matter too much) as a stand-alone off-road GPS. I've found that the GPS works with the radio turned OFF - which is handy for battery life, since I won't have to always be searching for the network that I won't be using.

I plan to run Backcountry Navigator, which doesn't need a net connection during use. I'll also likely install GPS Today for the home screen "quick" sat lock and MPH info, although it's not terribly useful w/out the data connection (I may also try wifi access pt from my Omnia to allow that data feed).

My question is what ROM should I convert to. I'm running DCD3.0.4 and figure the WM6.5 kitchen is probably worth a look, since the newer windows is more finger friendly than the old 6.0. I have radio ROM 3.35.04. Should I upgrade that too for possibly better GPS reception?

Any other suggestions are welcome.

Thanks!
Scott

most people run some variant of 3.42 radio rom and if you do 6.5, you may as well do 6.5.3 which will be the most finger friendly release to date. The mogul is still a pretty awesome phone imho.

I updated the radio to 3.42, but the 6.5 rom I created with the kitchen doesn't boot past the set up screen. will have to try that again. using sd card to load the rom is nice and easy. hadn't tried that before.
