Re: Bluetooth support
My research turned up the same two sources you cite :) I've just put
in an order with PC-Mobile. If you're still interested, we can
revisit your question in 2-3 weeks after I've had a chance to tinker
with my now "bluetooth enabled" GPS 60.

- I also have the BE130 for my 60CS. At first I didn't care for the fact that the buttons were covered by plastic, but after using it for a few weeks found that it really doesn't cause a problem. However, I agree, having to remove the case every time you want to plug into the USB is kind of a pain. Hopefully in the future, the design will be changed to accommodate the USB port. In my opinion, the case is very good quality.

I just received the Model - BE130 Sharskin case for my 60CS and I
really like it so far, except that I wish there was a way to access the
USB connector without removing the case. The case fits very snugly, so
it's difficult to get it half off to plug in the USB connector which I
will probably be doing quite often.
Still, I'm happy with the case so far and a protective case is
certainly an essential accessory for an expensive piece of hardware
