One observation - this runs PalmOS, not Windows Pocket PC.


Neither is necessarily better or worse than the other but it is like the VHS / Betamax debate.

If you already have any Pocket PC software, it won't run on this device.

You can also consider integrated devices which are a standard PDA with the GPS reveiver built-in.

Haven't personally used TomTom on a PDA - but you could look here (link) for more information and a review Here (link).

Personally, unless you really want a PDA and GPS navigator - I would look at a dedicated GPS nav unit such as the TomTom One - much easier to set up, usually better audio. but remember they are the most stolen devices for cars atm - so think how to carry it
