The only snag is all the cables - as my bluetooth gps is 2 years old now, it only holds a charge for about an hour so it has to be plugged in to the cigar lighter and defeats the object of having a bluetooth gps in the first place
I used to have a HP Ipaq HX4700, but all I used it for was Tomtom and so seemed a waste of time having such a funky bit of kit and not use it to its potential. Once I got my Nokia N70 I sold the Ipaq on Ebay . I know the screen's a lot smaller on the phone, but the directions from Tomtom come through my stereo speakers via my car kit and mutes the stereo. I don't need to use it very often and so it's enough for me. For someone who uses satnav regularly I reckon a PDA or a satnav unit is the way to go.
We sell a decent unit, the Navman iCN320 @ 170 - sold loads of them and get pretty good feedback from customers.
