GPS for 4th gen iPod?

My daughter gave me her iPod 4th gen when she got a fancy new iPhone. After some research I see that some solid products were made with GPS chips that enable GPS with iPod 2nd and 3rd generations, especially by Magellan, but I so far can't find one made for the 4th generation. Does anyone know of a good product that connects (I rather not use Bluetooth) similar to the Magellan ToughCase or at least a car bracket that would still be portable?

Look at it this way - you might help make a die hard pc person start to sway!

From what I can tell, the Magellan TouchCase works for the 4G iPod touch but I could be wrong (their website wasn't very clear). Your best option would be going with a bluetooth accessory though. It would drain the battery of the 4G iPod touch a lot faster but you can always just plug it into a car charger while using it. You wouldn't want to be using an iPod powered GPS device out in the wild anyway as it would drain the iPod's battery much faster than any bluetooth option.

On a side note, over 70% of iPhone, iPod, and iPad owners use Windows. Using an iPod under Windows doesn't mean you will sway any which direction and it definitely won't make you sprout a MacBook Pro as a third arm.
