Tungsten E and GPS help

I have a Tungsten E that I'd really like to set up with GPS capability.  I'm finding conflicting info on the web.  I was hoping to be able to use it with a Delorme BT-20 GPS receiver, but I'd be happy with any solution at this point.

Can anyone please tell me if there's a way to get my E to work with GPS?  My ultimate goal is to set my Plam up to work with IntelliGolf software and a golf GPS.

The BT-20 is a BlueTooth GPS.  The E does not have a BlueTooth radio in it...  No go.

Thanks WyreNut.  Are there any options available to me to make the E GPS capable?

In addition, decent stand-alone GPS units are getting very inexpensive these days.  Even if there was a wired receiving device/cradle available for the E, its functionality wouldn't be worth what you'd spend in comparison with just getting a new GPS unit.  And any software which would even run on the E would be old with very outdated maps.  For example, the last version of TomTom Navigator for Palm that was compatible with my TX and the Palm GPS Car Kit, was Navigator 5 and the maps were already dated when I bought it 4 or 5 years ago.
