Pros 25 hour battery life.
Cons Not designed for vehicle use. No method to attach to windshield. Poor sensitivity.
Recommended it? No

STAY AWAY IF YOU INTEND TO USE WITH A POCKET PC. The reviewer who said it worked with his device was probably using Windows Mobile 2003. It will not work on 5.0, and IOGear knows it. They said they would patch it in 2005, but it's almost 2007 and they still haven't.

You know- looking for the right GPS is probably one of the more difficult things to do. Which technolgy do you need? Will it work with your handheld/computer.

I sprung for this from a supplier for 149.00. It comes with all the maps of the USA you need, and a hip holster, neck lanyard, and... Read full review »

I'm now on my third gps unit, and this one seems to work flawlessly. I am still having some syntax errors with entering address data, but that's a user error. Im using it with pocket pc 2003 on a dell axim x30. Funny to note that I initially got the dell bluetooth gps that consistently required... Read full review »
