I've used the Delorme Bluelogger - and its very nice. However, the
drivers for downloading the logs is Windows only. So I would recommend
(and may get one myself) the WinTec WBT-200.

As Brad mentions, there is a GPSBabel add-on that works with it, and
it's cheaper at like $95.

For more info check here:

Definitely go with a logger - it makes it so much easier as you can
still do tracking with or without your Nokia 770 or laptop.
