The externals are more accurate
When using with Google Maps they are about the same.
True SatNav uses all sorts of algorithms to keep you on the road and make it seem much more accurate.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

You can find the current Map Manager here.
I must warn you, the current version is, well, the first version. Written in Java, so there have been problems, etc. There is a video user guide in the forums here, so I suggest you watch it if you have problems.
The newer map manager that has yet to be released fixes all those issues and has been redone from the ground up as far as code and GUI.
But you'll have to wait. Until then, the current Map Manager will get the job done.
(Make sure you have the latest version of Java on your CPU before using the map manager.)
As far as being more reliable (which I primarily use as my primary phone is the iPhone 2G (Only use 3G for testing and such)) I've found that overall I have had more location errors and problems with the iPhone 3G than my various external units.
I havent had an issue with my GPS showing that I was in the wrong spot with the external. Sometimes I would start up the iPhone 3G and it would let me know that I was about 50m+- off from my actual location, only working after I performed a reset of the GPS.
So I dont know. Either way, results may vary :P

Has anyone added this to their 2G phone yet. Just curious if it worked and if it did, how well did it work.

There is a turn-by-turn navigation program in the Appstore right now called G-Map East and G-Map West, and they are only $19.95, the Maps are on board so no internet connection is required, and there's no data usage.Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

Old news to me, xD.
Although I don't like the fact that MMi has to host everything on their repo, can't you just leave it to dev's repo and not yours? It's like your trying to look big with lots of downloads.
This post will probably get deleted because I know they won't like it.

I havent had an issue using the external GPS and works really well actually. I went with theirs because A. it is cheaper than the Holux receiver and cord used to connect it to the iPhone, and B. It just works. Thats why it is the official GPS receiver for xGPS.
I just simply bought a mount for my car for the iPhone and I use it everyday. Works great.

If you are getting an Error: Size Mismatch on Cydia when trying to download the xGPS Software, make sure you only have one source for the package installed. Basically, remove the Cydia.Xwaves.net Repo and only use the now Official, MMi Repo for the xGPS Software. That will solve all your problems.
We are working on removing the xWaves Repo, as MMi is now the Official Repo!
