PC-Mobile did sell a bluetooth adapter, but have discontinued it in the last week or so. Basically, you're SOL with an E or E2, because it has no serial port, only bluetooth. You can use any bluetooth GPS, but not a cabled model. I might be wrong about the E2, but I don't think so. I know the E has no serial port, and I'm fairly certain it's the same for the E2.

Correct, no serial port. Unlike the E's USB, the E2 has the later Palm "Multi connector" also seen on the T|X. As you said, I don't think a cable talking to the mini-USB of the later color Garmins is possible.

 

As an aside, and of no use to your 60C, but of possible interest for owners of a Palm E2 / T|X / some Treo phones here is a cable for a E2 / T|X to a serial-enabled GPSr ... (blue Legend and back).... http://www.serialio.com/products/cables/PalmMulti_RS232.php
