5-0 out of 5 stars Truly amazing package!Try it for yourself
I have just used the product for 14 days.I can not describe how happy I am with the performance of this tiny little gadget.First of all, for all those people complaining about bluetooth or wi-fi connectivity, I think this pocket PC is more focused on being a GPS/Navigation system and all the additional stuff should be considered a bonus.Hands down, pricewise this is one of the top navigational systems out there.My brother bought the Microsoft Streets and Trips USB add-on which he attaches to his laptop, and I bought this Garmin unit.Trust me, this GPS is 10 times better, its all in one package, comes with EVERYTHING you would need to get set and get going.

Highlights:
-Points of interests: finds atms, movie theatres, restaurants (really really handy when you're out with family and need to drive to another restaurant)
-Integrated: comes with everything you need to be mobile; dashboard kit, windshield mount, desktop charger, etc
-great software: the MapSource is excellent.
-great design, good price compared to its GPS competition.
-voice prompts work great when you are driving and its a loud clear speaker voice telling you exactly where to turn.If you miss a turn, it automatically recalculates and tell you where to turn next.basically, its really really hard to get lost if you have this thing.This product will save you money and time if you are driving in inner-cities and have a hard time with directions (so true for me driving around NYC metro area especially long island)

If we were to compare it within the GPS/Navigation category, this product takes the hat, no doubt about it.Compared to the $700 magellan unit, this is slicker, easier to set up AND did i forget to mention its a full fledged pocket PC with MS Windows Mobile Edition OS.

Cons:
only comes with 64 mb of storage.Which isn't bad, and it will load up maps of almost an entire state.I live in Queens, and I'm able to load up NYC and half of long island for about 20 megs.So i guess its not really a con.

If you need an excellent GPS system, this is it.Just think of the pocket PC functions as a free additional bonus.

i have never written a review in my life but after using this product, I was so satisfied that I told all my friends to get it instead of getting a $2k navigational system installed and now i'm writing a review to tell others what they MUST try for themselves.

4-0 out of 5 stars First impression - mixed results
Setup was easy, I got the 1 gig SD card and loaded half the US, and still have 400 meg available for mp3, jpeg, other files.This is my first GPS, first PDA, and I've had it a week, so this is a preliminary review:

Pros:
pocket size
accessories all included
can see screen easily in daylight
PDA processor is fast
Voice recorder is cool
jacks for external antenna and speaker

Cons:
Long time to acquire satellites
Lost satellites several times
Manual is just ok
HAVE to buy the SD card ($100)

The speaker on the unit is not loud enough for navigation if there is any background noise, but the speaker on the power adapter is plenty good, plus there's an output jack for external speaker if needed.

I have a Toyota Tacoma truck, and lose signal a lot - may need the external antenna.If I put the unit all the way forward on the dash it acquires satellites in a minute, but on the windshield mount it can take 10 minutes.It also seems to take longer if the car is moving, so I just wait a minute before taking off.

The manual was aggravating - it comes with a quick setup guide that was easy and accurate, and an application guide for the navigator software, but the general instruction manual is on CD only - no paper copy!I had to print the 88-page pdf.

The unit froze once - had to reset, so I was glad to read the other reviews about the updates available from Garmin.

Screen resolution is half what other PDA's are, and I was concerned about that, but I really can't tell any difference - pictures look great, videos too, and the maps look like Magellan or any other.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great product!Almost a home run, but not quite...
I have had about a week to use the M5. My first impression is WOW.This IS my first GPS and also my first PDA, so take my review for what it's worth.I would love to give this product 5 stars, but I will get right to the point of why I can't do it.

CONS :
No 802.11b/g - Not a huge deal if you don't mind plugging a bluetooth USB adapter in your PC, but honestly it is a little annoying that I can't connect right up to my 802.11g network out of the box.There are SD/MMC 802.11b cards available that are a option, but I have not ordered one yet.

GPS non-responsive - (see *Edit* at bottom of this review) As one other reviewer also noted, I also had a GPS problem where it acted like it was looking for the satellites, but couldn't see any of them.This was outside, and not indoors.I pushed the reset button, and GPS fired up just fine.As with the other reviewer, I also haven't had this problem reoccur after about a week of using it.The initial problem was about an hour after I took it out of the box. Since then I have used it a good 20+ times without any problems.I will report back if this problem comes back!

The leather flip case(?) - It is a little lame, and offers no protection except for maybe screen...and even that's a stretch.

PROS -
Wow, I opened the box, and it was very complete. A nice windshield suction mount, cig adapter with speaker and the other 'standard' PDA items (cradle, USB cable, travel A/C adapter, etc).

It's a nice size, not to bulky.The battery seems to perform as expected.I don't have any exact #'s, but from what I could tell it was at least 4 hours with some GPS usage.

One thing I would like to comment on is the 'cost'.A lot of reviews elsewhere talked about how expensive this device is.Yes, it's not cheap, but try buying a comparable PDA and a GPS add-on. You'll be close to, if not higher than what you would pay for this fully integrated PDA/GPS.

I have taken one trip (74 miles each way).It did a pretty good job getting me to the destination.I did notice that it was a little slow to recalculate the route if you miss a turn (5-10 seconds on average). Not a huge deal, but could be a problem in inner-city driving. It also did a random "Make U-Turn" in the intersection I was turning at. I believe the intersection came up later than the GPS/mapping software was expecting. The estimated time of arrival is nice, and right on target!

GPS performance : The GPS picks up the satellites fine in my car.My house (2 story) it's fine on the second floor, but the first floor it does not pick up the satellites unless I move over to a window.

Storage - I don't own a memory card yet, but even with the built-in memory I was able to get most of middle-TN and North Atlanta.I hear a 2GB memory card will hold all of the US, and 1GB will hold over half the US.I would say that is about right.

That's about all I can think of at this time. I will report back in a few weeks with an update.At this point I am very pleased.

Edit 4/28/05 - I did have one additional lockup of the unit that required a 'reset', so I went to the Garmin website and found out that there was a new firmware revision. I loaded the firmware and so far the unit seems to be performing perfectly.So, for those who are having GPS lockup problems, download the firmware revision.Garmin states that the firmware fixes several lockup issues.

5-0 out of 5 stars A killer product
The Garmin ique m5 pocketpc/gps is a gadget lover's dream come
true. The price of a decent pocket pc from dell or hp would
easily run to $500. For $100 more than the price of a standard
pocket pc you get a WAAS enabled gps with bluetooth support.

The bundled software includes garmin map software for entire
united states and Microsoft outlook 2002.
Setup was easy. I was able to install the Map source software
without any problems. Garmin provides a usb based sync cable and
cradle. Since i own a Garmin GPSMap 60CS the user interface was
comfortable.


The automount is a second cradle which mounts on the windshield
via a suction cup. The suction cup mechanism was very sturdy and
stayed on for months without coming off. I did not find any problems with the mount unlike one previous reviewer.

Driving directions are provided via an external speaker
attached to the car charger. Sound was loud and clear.
The m5 has a built in speaker which has decent drive.
The battery looks to be of a replacable type. The device
comes with one slot for SD card. Onboard memory is around 60MB.
For $100 you could adda 1GB SD card and have the entire US maps loaded.

The map visibility depends a lot on the make of your car andthe angle of the windshield mount.
The map was clearly visible during daytime and nighttime.
I drive an Acura.The screen realestate is bigger than the Quest product. Outlook adresses, notes etc can be synched easily.


Entering addresses was a breeze using the stylus. The maps and
routing worked fine 98% of the time. Once in a while i had lost
satellite reception and had to reset the device. I think most of
these problems will be patched when Garmin comes out with a software update.

Couple of caveats...

The User interface is functional but lack friendliness.
Lots of concepts...like POI, Address, Locations which confuse the
user. This sofware needs to be reviewed by some usability
experts. Garmin folks ...are you listening...take a look at
IPod, google maps etc... complicated software but simpler interface.

The map sofware takes up 3GB on my HD. Think this is due to
incompatible map formats with other garmin products (60CS).
May not be a problem if you do not own other garmin products.

Pricing: This device needs to be priced under $500

2-0 out of 5 stars Buy if you want to be on the bleeding edge
I like garmin products.Seems support for this one is a bit dicey.

Pro's - It's a garmin.Most of their products are great, and their mapping software is good.

Con's - Bluetooth.Doesn't appear it works with much.Garmin tech support admits it doesn't work with any keyboard or headset.They don't admit to what it DOES work with.Seems they are relying on users to discover that.Documentation can be a bit sketchy too.Again, relying on users to find and report the bugs.If want to pay a lot for bleeding edge technology, this is it. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great keyboard from the makers of stow-a-way
This is my third keyboard that I've purchased for my PDA (Axim X50v) and I'm thrilled with the quality and performance of this keyboard.I highly recommend this product to anyone considering a keyboard.

I first bought a Belkin IR keyboard from Office Dept and it sucked.It felt cheap.The keys were poorly spaced and I couldn't get it to work with my Axim X50v.But in reality the biggest problem was the cheapness of the keyboard.I paid $60 for the keyboard and felt that I should have paid $20.Piece of crap.Decided to return it within 5 minutes of opening the box.

The second keyboard I bought was the "Dell Axim X50V Portable / Foldable / Full Size Bluetooth Keyboard" from Suntekstore / Amazon.This keyboard sucked for several reasons.First off, while it may have number keys (unlike this keyboard) the keys are all undersized so I couldn't type with them.Not a good start.Second problem is that the keyboard was made for cell phones, NOT PDA's!I couldn't put my Axim on the stand without it falling over or leaning at an unacceptable level toward the ceiling.Total crap.And the third problem was that I couldn't get it to connect to my PDA.I'm sure i could've figured out the third problem but the keyboard sucked so bad I made the decision to return it after an hour of opening the box.

Then I ordered the Think Outside keyboard...

This keyboard is head over heals better than the other keyboards that I just mentioned.The keys feel nice and they are well spaced.Opening the unit was a little stiff at first, but now slides open and closed easily with a satisfying "click" at either end of the process.The Axim fits PERFECTLY into the cradle that is built into the unit (I use the Axim in landscape position).I was also able to get this keyboard to work in about 30 minutes.Not plug and play, but reasonable.The keyboard sacrificed the number keys to make room for the larger key spacing, but I haven't found that it's a problem to type numbers by holding down the function keys.The best thing about this keyboard however is the quality.I paid $90 for it and I'd do it again in a second.

BTW, for those of you who are trying to figure out if the extra money for bluetooth is worth it, it is!I keep my PDA in its cradle by my computer charging when I'm at my desk.At any time I can flip open my keyboard and start typing notes without ever removing the PDA from its cradle.It's very convenient!

I've owned the keyboard for about a week and I'm very thrilled with the quality and performance it.It's a joy to use and easily doubles the usefulnexx of my PDA

1-0 out of 5 stars A change of heart
It seems that this keyboard acts a little like those gold fish you bring home in a plastic bag from the pet shop.You have to put the whole bag in the tank until it acclimates to it's new surroundings.I went from wanting to love the thing for the sheer coolness factor....to boxing it up to send back when it wouldn't sync to my Axim x50v....to giving it another chance and after it was good and ready to work flawlessly, I now love it again.The keyboard is smaller than standard but very useable.It's great for writing a longer e-mail, inputting contacts, or writing a letter in word, when you don't want to peck at the screen with your stylus endlessly.The construction feels solid and opening and closing is a snap.Pun intended. The only major flaw is with the cradle that holds your PDA.It is removable which is the desired use to space the PDA a little further away from you.But the feet that clip it to the keyboard just don't want to let go.The plastic it's made out of doesn't seem especially robust and I feel certain it will snap off eventually.Also the curved lower part of the cradle that holds your Axim, et al, is a little under developed and if bumped will readily jettison what it's holding.Other than that it works very well and never ceases to make me grin when everyone passing your table at Starbucks has to stop and ask you about it. I previously gave it one star, but now that it's acclimated and working I give it 4 only because of the cradle shortcoming or else it would have been a full 5.I know it shows one star, but Amazon wholdn't allow me to edit the scale.

1-0 out of 5 stars Could not get it to work on Dell Axim X30BT
Oh how I wanted this to work.

I ended up sending it back after spending seven hours, over two days, trying to get it to activate. Followed the instructions to a "T." Again and again.

Downloaded the new software. The instructions for both the old and new software ARE quite confusing.

Spent time on the web trying to find a support phone number for Think Outside. No such thing. Found an email support address. Emailed for help. Found a support forum. Posted my questions. Didn't hear back for two days and so mailed the unit back to Amazon. Then heard back.

Think I MAY have figured out--from the response they sent--something I could have done to get it going. But, too late. Too frustrating.

Obviously (from reading the reviews) it loads more easily on some other pocket devices. Allow lots of time for experimenting and contacting support by email and awaiting responses if you're loading it onto a Dell Axim. AND read the recent comments from other Dell Axim users here who had difficulties but figured out how to get it working. (Wish I had realized there were new comments from Dell Axim owners.)

I've used a Stowaway keyboard for my Palm for years. Works wonderfully. Never needed any help. Expected this one to be just as easy to install and delightful to use. Or even more so, being bluetooth. Wish that HAD been my experience. Had no idea there is not a support number for Think Outside. Had never had reason for one before.

I ordered the keyboard early in March and at the same time ordered the Bluetooth Travel Mouse. Had planned to install them together. But the Travel Mouse didn't come with the keyboard. I kept waiting. (Turns out the travel mouse is on major -- couple month -- back order.) When I realized that almost 30 days had passed since the keyboard had arrived and the mouse was not here yet, I decided I had better load the keyboard software and try it out. Wish I'd played with it the day it arrived. Would have given me plenty of time to do the slow back-and-forth email thing with Stowaway and, hopefully, get it going.

If you have a Dell Pocket PC, this is probably not going to be plug and play for you. (But if you do get it going, I'll bet you'll love it.)

Best,
kwc

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice Hardware. Poor Software.
When I installed the driver on my Dell Axim X30 the device became unusable. The "Built-in Storage" section of memory had disappeared.A hard reset and restore from backup brought things back to normal and the second install attempt succeeded. Not too much fiddling to get the devices paired and talking.

The feel of the keyboard is really good. I've used laptops that were less intuitive for my fingers. I'm still getting used to the route to the numbers and symbols. PDA keyboards I have owned in the past were not rigid enough to be used in a lap. I wanted this one because it was reputed to have improved on this, and I am not disappointed. I can easily use it in bed to IM my sister or whatever.

Another unexpected bit of happiness came when I tried to use the keyboard while I had a Bluetooth ActiveSync connection. I didn't expect it to work, but it does. Cool!

Overall I would recommend this product. The instructions say to back up the device before you install the driver and that turned out to be very good advice.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent tool
I've been dreaming of getting this, or another, keyboard for my Dell Axim x30 since the first time I wrote a detailed email on it. No matter what, writing 1000 plus characters with the stylus and on-screen keyboard just doesn't work out.

So, the package arrives with my new keyboard, first thing I notice is the batteries ARE included (yippie - my wife had used the last of our 'spare' AAA's in one of the kids games). Next, I was pleasantly surprised by how sturdy the keyboard feels.Despite other reviews that I've read, I noted no loose keys. Finally (just in reference to the look and feel) I am blown away by the nice tactile feel of the keystrokes!

Now it is time to set it up. I activated my PDA, connected (via BlueTooth) to my desktop using ActiveSync. Installing the driver over the connection went fine, though it seems not to function if you install it to the storage card. Downloading and installing an updated driver is a little confusing too. NOTE: Turn bluetooth OFF before activating the software, if your bluetooth is on when you go to activate the software (after resetting your device) the software won't find the bluetooth system.

Once up and running, this keyboard is even better than what I have been expecting, it has nicely laid out hotkeys for openning PDA functions and programs, making the stylus almost obsolete.

Overall, other than a few SMALL snags with setup, the quality and operation of this keyboard are excellent! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Works well when it works
Under normal operating conditions, I have no issues regarding this WiFi card, which I use in a Tungsten T3.While the battery drain is a bit high, it still performed very well... Until... The big problem I got from using this device was a "Fatal Exception Error" that seemed to rise out of nowhere, requiring a hard reset.This is an exceptionally big problem if you have any sensitive information on your device - I used mine for storing some encrypted data.It's amazing how little PalmOne has done to help.Their website offers little information (they say to do a hard reset - thanks for the great tip!), and their support line is no better.My advice is to not bother with any PalmOne products if you are looking for a WiFi device - get something more reliable.I hate to say this, but I feel like PalmOne is headed downhill FAST, thanks to their poor customer responsiveness.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Card but watch out for "Fatal Exception"
The card is spectacular and fast with great range.One reviewer has mentioned that the range is half that of his laptop.My card, for whatever reason (maybe I'm a giant antenna or something) gets better range than my Lucent/Orinoco 802.11b Wi-Fi card, so range is pretty comparable to most laptops in my case.The card is a snap to use, installation is great.

Pros:
Fast, easy to use, great for quick emails and light internet browsing (WebPro 3.0 is a little slow on graphics rendering, so stick to mainly text sites and don't try e-bay'ing with it)
Cons:
Drivers are goofy (if you get "Fatal Exception" errors you have to hard reset the handheld according to PalmOne), sometimes the VPN drops out or doesn't connect, drains battery juice pretty fast (Palm's Power To Go thing has been suggested to me by other users)

All in all this is well worth the cost and definately worth the other $40 for the Power To Go.Too bad the browser is so slow, but AOL Instant Messaging is very fast and great for college students (I'm a graduate student and use it to IM a lot).

4-0 out of 5 stars What they said...
Installation was trivial, worked first time. From reading earlier reviews, I was aware that this thing uses a lot of power -- not a big deal for my situation.

Minor quibble: It would be nice to have a plastic container for the card, to protect it when not in use. It's larger than a "normal" SD card, and needs a custom container.

I plan eventually to get a hiptop (Oqo, Flybook, or the like), once they settle out, probably a year or two. In the meantime, the Zire 72 with WiFi and a big memory card fills the bill.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not too shabby...
This works fine and I was happy with the speed at which I was able to do a Google search with the bundled software WebPro.Downloading email using the IMAP server was a little slower than using the web, but it worked out quite well using the T3's VersaMail email software.

There are two minor downsides though:

1)The range is about half that of a laptops WiFi card.But it's still good enough that if you're inside a Cafe or on the sidewalk outside a WiFi hotspot, you'll have no problems.

2)It uses a lot of juice...But that's to be expected for something like this.Realistically though, you probably won't spend as much time surfing the web with this device as you would with a laptop.You'd do the occasional quick surfing, as well as downloading email, so battery life is probably acceptable for a majority of users.

If you do need WiFi on your PDA, then you'll be very happy with this.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works great, but...
In terms of installation and function, this card is great. Unfortunately, the battery in my T3 was in the critical zone after playing with it for about 45 minutes. Looks like any extended use will require that the unit be plugged in while you are surfing. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Good alternative to All-in-one GPS units
I've been using a Garmin StreetPilot III for 3 years now, for those unfamilar with it, its a all-in-one GPS unit with auto-routing feature and voice prompt.Its a good trusty device, highly rugged and I credit much of my career success in Silicon Valley to it.

What prompted me to start sourcing for another GPS device is due to the airport hassle we experience these days.I work for the Sales department of a security company and that means frequent travel these days.The StreetPilot III is an excellent device but its a little bulky to fit into my notebook bag.

Hence enter the Garmin GPS 10.I got mine for $209 from Digitally Unique, they're slow on shipping but the price was good.Get the Deluxe package and not the receiver only one, the Garmin software and maps are worth the money.

In comparison with the older StreetPilot, advantages are:
1.Small, light and easily fit into your pocket or laptop bag, easier when passing through airport security.

2.Integrated magnetic mount allows for mounting outside the rental car, a good solution in case you rented a car with heatsheild on the windscreen that can block GPS signal.

3.Waterproof, so you can still mount the device outside the car in adverse weather condition.

4.Software provided for both PocketPC and Windows OS (Mac / Linux users are out of luck here).Most business travellers like myself typically carry a PDA and for sure has a notebook.In case your PDA fails, you'll still have GPS capability using your notebook.

5.Enhanced software features includes:
- More customization options
- Cool transparent setting for indicators and prompts
- Elevation indicator, nice feature when travelling
- Easier filter for Waypoints and POI (Points of Interest)

6.Uses standard SD or Compact flash memory cards supported by your PDA instead of the proprietary flash memory cards from Garmin.Get the Viking 512mb SD card available from Amazon here with rebate, goes nicely if your PDA has a SD slot.

7.The GPS 10 turns on automatically if it detects power from the 12v cigarette lighter adaptor.


Disadvantages compared to StreetPilot III:
1.This could be related to my choice of PDA, I'm using a Dell Axim X5 PocketPC 2003. This PDA does not have an integrated Bluetooth so I use a Anycom Bluetooth CF card.Whenever I turn off the PDA and back on again, I need to re-connect the Bluetooth serial connection.Then I have to stop the Garmin nRoute software from searching the serial port, then reconnect again.A bit of a hassle compared to the StreetPilot III where you simply turn it on.

2.Routing algorithm not as good as StreetPilot III.The Pocket PC based routing logic seems to be slightly inferior to the one based on SP III (Palm OS based).

3.Depending on your PDA, the screen could be very difficult to read in the car.The Dell Axim X5 does not do well despite its transreflective LCD.The SP 3 on the other hand is clearly visible under all sorts of condition.Recommend you buy a PDA with a very bright screen.

4.PDA dependent.The SP 3 is a integrated device and is very rugged, sitting in direct sunlight for 2 years before I finally managed to buy a townhouse with a garage last year.The PDA however, is flimsy in comparison.I would not thing the Dell Axim will hold up being in sunlight all the time for 2 years.

5.Mounting a hassle.For a semi permanent mount in a car, you'll have to buy a mount either from Seidio or Arkon.However, those mounts are mainly for the PDA and you'll have to mount the GPS 10 seperately.


Recommendation:
1.If you do not travel by air frequently but is looking for a GPS device for use in your car, go with one of those all-in-one devices such as the older Garmin 2610/2620 or the newer Garmin c320/c330.They're much easier to use and mount, and are easier to see in your car.

2.For frequent travellers by air, get this Garmin GPS 10 and a good PDA.This combo is a lot more portable and works even if you end up renting a car with heatshield on the windscreen.Also, in case the PDA fails, you'll have your notebook to fall back on.

3.If you decide on the Garmin GPS 10, get a PDA that has the fastest possible processor. The latest Intel XScale running at 624Mhz is a good choice.My Axim X5 running 416Mhz though usable, I sometimes felt a faster processor would be nice when I'm planning a trip and markign waypoints on the PDA. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Can't get parts
This is a must-have for those who use the GPS in the car.

Be careful of missing parts.I lost some parts on the cigaratte lighter plug in a rental car and can't get them.

3-0 out of 5 stars Funny design
This gadget is sort of a four-lobed bean-bag with a sticky, rubbery material on the bottom.It doesn't move much on the dashboard, but I wonder if it should even be there.

The instructions are pretty emphatic that you shouldn't put the device in your line-of-sight and it shouldn't rest on an airbag.That would banish it from my Ford Focus and limits it's place in my Honda Odyssey.I'd have preferred something that stuck to the windshield with suction cups, like a radar detector.

The device and the mounting base the iQue 3600 sits in are bulky.I've used mine on business trips and it takes up more space in my carry-on than I think it should.

The mounting bracket that holds the PDA has a couple of screws that allow you to adjust the bracket so you can turn the screen towards you and place it at a convenient angle.I lost one of the screws in a rental car and can't get help from Garmin to replace it.If you buy one of these, watch out for the pieces.

2-0 out of 5 stars Just does not stay.
I purchased the navigation kit but found that when driving a bit sporty, the kit does not stay on the dashboard at all, landed on the floor each time. Eventually placed it on the center console but that is not the right spot to look at the iQue 3600.
Bought the windshield suction cup and found that that works 100 times better than this navigation kit.
Unless, you have a flat dash board and do the 0-60 mph in about a minute or more, don't buy this kit but go for the suction cup.

5-0 out of 5 stars "Must Have" for the iQue 3600
The navigation capabilities of the iQue 3600 are fantastic.One really must have this Auto Navigation Kit in order to take full advantage of the unit.

"Friction Mount" in this case means that the unit is attached to a bean-bag base with high-friction rubber underneath so it doesn't slide around your dashboard.

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolute Must
It stays put, it charges, and in New York city it's absolutely indispensable for getting good reception on the run. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Cradle is nice... I find the light annoying
I would suggest this to anyone who plunks down the cash for the Tungsten T5.The cradle is reasonably sturdy/heavy/unlikely to fall over when your PDA is sitting in it and looks reasonably nice on your desk.I also think it is much easier than messing around with the cheap adapter and USB cable which comes in the box.

The only thing I don't like about it is the annoying light that is ALWAYS on!If you look in the picture, it is the light gray/non-silver part.It catches the corner of my eye and has been surprisingly distracting -- so much so that I have had to unplug it.Otherwise, I'd have to say it's great and give it all five stars!

5-0 out of 5 stars Exceptional engineering
I bought this mouse about a week ago to use with my Compaq laptop.This mouse has exceded my expectations in every aspect.I must ackowledge the engineering design of this mouse is flawless.Some points that stand out:

1. Optical engine.
2. rubber feel, excellent grip and control of the pointer.
3. Auto shut off to save batteries (back online with just a click)
4. Sexy design
5. Extremely easy setup. ( I am using it with a trendware bluetooth dongle )

This product deffinetely stands out of the crowd of bluetooth travel mice.

1-0 out of 5 stars A change of heart ...part 2
See my review of the Think Outside Keyboard and everywhere you see the word keyboard, insert "mouse" instead.Four stars only because it is just a tad undersized.Even if you just wanted to carry it in your pocket it could easily be 25% larger and still be compact but a little more useable to someone with a larger hand. Yes< I know it says one star but that's the only thing Amazon would not let me edit.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow..small size...big performance.
I use this little gem with a Sager PC Laptop.I connected right off the bat and works like a champ.It's very very small, but actually very useable.No drivers with it for XP but I don't find myself needing any other functionality that XP doesn't already provide.The on-off switch is cool and the size makes it extremely easy to pack just about anywhere in the backack.If you don't use it for a little while, it seems to go into sleep mode. It takes a moment or two to "wake up" but that doesn't really pose a problem.I'd rather have to deal with waking it up than replacing batteries more often.
Solid buy.It's a tad under 3.5 inches long with the widest part under 2 inches.It comes with regular batteries to start you off.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great mouse!
I bought this mouse to go along with my Dell Axim X50v and I must say this little guy compliments it very well. The functionality of the mouse is excellent and battery life seems to be great. It is also a very cool looking mouse that attracts a lot of attention when I pull it out in class or the library.If a small, but great bluetooth is what you need look no farther.The carrying bag it comes with is an added plus.

5-0 out of 5 stars It works! and it's sexy!
I just got this little bastard for my Dell XPS gen2 and it works great. I do graphic art and animation so I need a good mouse when
I'm not using a graphics tablet on the road. This little guy has all the important features of a bluetooth mouse for example: on
and off switch, good battery life, and a sexy design for everyone to see. It was easy as hell to connect it to the laptop using the
bluetooth software. So that was cool.

I did a lot of shopping around before I purchased this midget mouse and it turns out I made the right choice. Only thing that
sucks butt is that stowaway only makes drivers for pocket PC's and I use this hoe on my laptop, so I can't customize the buttons. Oh well, that was to be expected, it sill rocks.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great keyboard
I just bought this keyboard, somewhat afraid it might serve my needs.I have a HP iPaq 1910, for which there is no official full sized keyboard available.I just received it and it works great.It can be configured also to other keyboard layouts besides the US English layout (most of my typing is in Spanish).The only inconvenience with using a keyboard layout other than de US English is that the symbols on the other layouts (e.i. Spanish layout) need to use a special combination of function keys to be accessed (because of the lack of a 5th key row), but it doen't take long to get used to this.
The hinge bump mentioned with the pictures has been of no bother whatsoever.
The size is great and the convenience is huge.Now my PPC can really be used for typing.

4-0 out of 5 stars Useful but difficult
The day I got my Tungsten T3, I knew I needed a keyboard, as the buit-in keyboard is extremely difficult, especially when the T3 is sideways. After reading several positive reviews on this keyboard, I decided to give it a try.

This device was very easy to set up, required a very quick PC installation and then a HotSync. Used it for a few minutes and found that the response was very fast, the hotkeys wonderful to have if a bit difficult to get the hang of, and the key size large enough to type normally.

Annoyingly, there are FIVE function keys: ctrl, cmd, alt, fn1 and fn2. Each one does something different, and it can get hard to keep track of. This is especially annoying because you have to hold fn1 to type numbers, and fn2 to type symbols.

The other problem, which kept me from giving this 5 stars, was that when the Tungsten T3 is being used sideways, the IR transmitter doesn't line up with the port on the T3! Fortunately, the range of the transmitter seems to be a few inches, so it works almost flawlessly with the handheld next to the stand instead of on it.

I read somewhere that the T3 could not be used sideways on this keyboard because the screen flipped upside-down. However this is easily overcome, simply switch the handedness to left-handed, or, using the keyboard, hold alt and press the delete key to rotate the screen.

Overall, nice device, feels well-made unlike some other portable keyboards I've seen. Easy to set up, and recommended for most handhelds.

5-0 out of 5 stars Well worth it
I have been using this keyboard for several weeks now, and I simply love it. It works extremely well. It's easy to set up, easy to use, feels great, has many shortcut keys integrated, and is lightweight. If I type lightly, I can even use it on my lap, though I would imagine it's not stable enough for most users to do so.

My only complaint is the backrest (which holds up the PDA) can slip if not used on a hard surface. I tend to work on the back of my backpack (the flat side) when commuting to work, though this little stand sometimes slips and wants to fall.

However, I have no other complaints. It's allowed me to (almost) ditch my laptop for research papers and essays.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very nice design and functionality
I have only good thigs to say about this keyboard. It folds and unfolds easily and comes with a nice pouch to store it in. The keys feel like a real keyboard and are pretty quiet when typing. This is important to me, since I'll be using it for taking notes in class. The keyboard folds out flat and stays in place thanks to rubber inserts in the back. The synchronization works perfectly with my Zire 31. I would recommend this keyboard to anyone looking for a compact and effective way to enter data into their PDA.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome!
This little keyboard is so well made, it's very nice looking, solid, very very high quality!!! I still havent gotten used to they key placement,though.At first I thought they left out a lot of letter keys, but no, they're all there.The letters share the number keys on the number row at the top, and you have to hold down the Fn key to type numbers, so you're in trouble if your an accountant or are typing a financial document or something else with a lot of letters.But all in all, this keyboard is impressive, and once you activesync install the driver, my iPAQ 1940 detected it no problem.Oh one more thing, you can control basically all the system settings from different combinations of Fn or Shift-clicking various keys, so that is really, really handy.So much better than going Start/Settings/system/...... ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Great.
I got this and used it for my Zire 31 it worked great.I thought that the software worked fine but the keys were a little off.But you will get used to it otherwise it is a great keyboard.

1-0 out of 5 stars Didn't work with my T3, even with the latest drivers. 3-1-05
I returned it. VERY nice, full keyboard, if it works with your handheld or phone.Though it worked, somewhat, with my T3, the "keyboard" program installed on my T3 couldn't be used/customized, and the driver may have corrupted my T3, forcing me to do a "hard reset", deleting all info on my T3. It didn't actually damage my T3, though, as earlier posters noted, using the earlier/shipped driver that came with the keyboard on the install CD.

I think I'll go with a Think Outside brand, "Stowaway" keyboard.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice to have Right Hand Layout - butThe ? Key?
Palm finally got it right that the landscape mode can be used in right hand (default) layout.I thought that this might be a nice keyboard.HOWEVER, within my second sentence I was typing to someone, I wanted to end it with a question mark, like this?What, where was it?On the RIGHT HAND SIDE of the right shift key.HOW DUMB is that.They could have put it right were it is on every other keyboard everyone types on. There is no reason they could not have put it in the same place as every other keyboard, there is no other function / symbol there.

I am just amazed!!How can they overlook something like that?

Don't expect to type fast on this one.The keys are smaller than a normal keyboard.It was hard for me to hit the spacebar cleanly.

Oh, and if you want to use more than one of the Palm keyboards, you are out of luck.The driver for this one works on this keyboard only.So, if you have 2 or more keyboards like I do (depening on the environment I'm in) you can't do that anymore.

I'll be staying with the old W folding model for now. The driver for the P10946U model wireless supports multiple keyboards.People say you have to put your palm in left handed landscape mode for it to work properly, not so.I found if you use the ALT-Delete key combination, it will shift the landscape mode.Not docuemented anywhere, but super VALUABLE for fast changes.

Palm gives us lots of options....to bad they don't get one fully complete.What gives us an reason to upgrade?grin.

3-0 out of 5 stars OK, But Not Perfect
* Nice Construction

* S/W Problem Resolved - Do NOT use the CD Driver - Download the 12/13/04 update from PalmOne

* Good Layout - Easy to type and unlike Ultra-Slim, does not require 100 Function Key operations!

* Only complaint is that it likes turning off at inconvenient times, so I have to completely close the unit and re-open to activate the driver, so I think something in the hardware itself is still jacked. Otherwise, it is worth the $$

1-0 out of 5 stars Who designed this rubbish?
This keyboard is a totally unstable design, you cannot use on your knee or anything moving, otherwise the Handset will topple over. Software installation was a no-go, and when it was finally installed, a succession of fatal errors led me to junk the whole thing. Just waiting for the pins on the T5 connector to bend or snap, and no integrated USB power.

Whoever designed this contraption failed to consider basic ergonomics, and how the Palm is used on the move.

Used to have the Palm IIIc and keyboard. Loved it. Stable platform, easy to use, reliable, strong connector, and great for rapid note taking. Replaced it with a T5. Progress? ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good idea but...
I have had a Garmin III for a while, and used it stand-alone and with laptop in vehicle, so I knew what (somewhat) to look for in the technology.
My purpose was to use GPS technology on my motorcycle for cross country trips.
Pros - iPaq HPrx3115 and HP iPAQ GPS NavSys worked well together. -Devices were physically sound, and even with vibration on the motorcycle didn't miss a beat.
-Could not hear the voice directions, but could read the display to see what the voice had said..., -Though there is map update available from NAVTEQ (New name for Nav Tech) the one I got with the unit worked well. -Used vehicle chargers on both units keeping brightest display on the 3115 was essential during the day. -Used RAM RV handlebar mount for 3115, while NavSys housed well in the tank bag, along with cell phone. With added helmet speakers, the voice was audible. -RAM mount allowed mounting close to LOS (Line of Sight) which is important when driving a motorcycle, and -the auto zoom in feature was great. It's really hard to read a map while riding a motorcycle. -Setting route traverse up rather than north up, was a real plus, because the map matched the roads I was on.
Cons -have to shut down the nav program on the 3115 BEFORE powering down the unit.-Loading new regions was time consuming and had to be done at home, no way to update on the road unless I carry a laptop, no way on a motorcycle. -Can't route the trip on the host PC with the NavTeq software, has to be done on the iPAQ. -Twice routed me to an exit, then cloverleafed me back on to the same route and direction. -Once came to a detour it didn't know about.Bridge out, had to circumvent it manually, but had to restart Nav program to get to right place on the map. -Had to turn Off the WIFI access, as it's hard to dismiss a window with heavy riding golves on, and dangerous as well.
Summary - It took me most of the trip from Minnesota to Tennessee and back to learn how to use this setup. I'm not really excited about the price of the map updates - $99.00 USD, and available every 6 months for US and Canada. But I guess if you really need the latest for an important trip, they are very detailed. Never did figure out how to use POI (Points of Interest) without losing my calculated route.

3-0 out of 5 stars it takes for ever...
I have an old Garmin etrek, which is a very basic and robust GPS.I always complained about the time it takes to find the satellites, but this HP device takes a lot longer!

Even in open areas under blue sky, it takes several minutes to operate properly.I tried it in San Francisco, Chicago, Miami, and also in Brazil, where I live.The result is always the same:you walk or ride for a long time before it finds your position.Quite disappointing.

Buildings and eletric cables interfere a lot with the reception, and very often you will lose signal.Bluetooth connectivity, though, works fine.

Having a GPS associated with a PDA (I have an iPaq 4150) is great: there are great softwares available.But life would be a lot better if this unit was more sensitive.I wonder if other brands and models work better.

(by the way: the navigation software is very good)

5-0 out of 5 stars GPS
I have had this GPS Reciever for a month now, and it works very well. Sometimes it may be a little slow in getting a GPS signal, but the software is pretty good. Sure beats buying an in car system (the built ins from Honda, Infiniti, Nissan, etc) cost almost $2K! I paid $275 for this and another $290 (about) for the actual PDA. I think it's a really good deal. Plus I get wireless (iPaq rx3115) and all that other good stuff. All in all, a very user friendly system. Intial problems with set up have been solved with the help of the dedicated iPaq support line, which has been very friendly and nice. Surprising service for a technology company, in my opinion.

3-0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware!
I ordered and returned this item 3 times from Amazon, each time I was sent a returned/used item!!Units had scratches, missing accessories and manuals.Apparently this item is a popular "use it and return it" item.Amazon apparently does not QC so check your box carefully.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Buy
The Hp Gps unit is a good buy, It has its pro's and cons. But overall is a great buy. Don't pay more than $200 for the unit though. Pros: The unit is small and easy to operate, Connects quickly and reliably,software is great and fairly reliable.
Cons: The holder as many have writtin is cheesy and cheap, it rocks when you make corners and requires you to tape a button with double sided tape to the back of your PDA. I would reccomend a different mount and one with a speaker like the ARKON Powered PDA & GPS Mount Kit listed in another review. I would also reccomend using velcro to fasten the gps unit to your dash otherwise it slides around. As far as using the gps for walking, it is a bit of a pain to use unless you put it in a T-shirt pocket, anything thicker than that and it wont recieve a signal.I sewed a velcro strip to my jacket and stick the gps to that. Also I would reccomend having at least a 256 or 516mb memory card in your PDA If you plan on travelling state to state. I put 5 state maps on my pda and it fills my 256mb card. So the more memory you have the farther you can go. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great iPAQ GPS
I've been using TomTom GPS software on my iPAQ for some time now but the sheer amount of cables involved in connecting to my Delorme GPS unit made for a messy car.So, I decided to check out the NavMan unit.After a bit of research it appeared that it would work with the TomTom software.Great news is that installation of the NavMan was simple, although I seem to have to activate the software that came with the NavMan unit even though I was going to use TomTom software.Starting up the TomTom software and telling it to use the IPAQ sleeve was simple and I now have the software I like and am used to along with a great GPS solution.I'd highly recommend this GPS sleeve.

1-0 out of 5 stars An unqualified product
I am going to return this item. I was even inclided to mark the product as defective when choosing the return reasons. This product is really bad at:

1) The GPS continues to lose signal. Even if I have updated the GPS firmware accordingly to the company's website. In many open places, it took more than 3-5 minutes to get a satellite fix and then it lost soon.

2) I am in New Jersey, however, the address of my doctor can't be found in the map.

3) Most amazingly, the car cigratte ligher adaptor cannot be fit into the GPS backpack. After contacting the NAVMAN support, the guy asked me to buy another IPAQ accessary separately. I just wonder, had they tried it before they made this product?

4) The customer support of NAVMAN is really bad. I sent email to them and wait for almst a week and couldn't get a response. Calling their phone get me an answer, though the guy was not very patient.

1-0 out of 5 stars bad routing, not trustworthy
good:
1)the interface looks good, fancy looking
that's it!

bad:
1)DUMB software: keep tell me to "perform illegal U-turn" when I am on i-5 going from SF to LA. It won't re-route until midpoint on I5

2)Exit: most of the time it will not tell you where to exit from the highway, no street name, no exit# (it will only say "exit in 1500 feet"). So if there's multiple exits (especially in LA!) within couple hundred feet, it will get very confused and make the user confused too! 99% of the time the user will end up getting out on the wrong exit!

3)when the highway splits, it won't know which highway it's on if you chose the middle lane. or, it thinks you are on the highway when it's really on the service road.

4)frequent reboot/freeze up.

5)it will take non-necessary shortcut, get people lost

6)won't let you choose the route. Stubborn piece of junk.

my wife doesn't want to use it, my friends who had used it don't trust it. makes me look like an idiot.

should never get this.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good...only when it works
In general, this is kind of a "you've got what you paid for" result. I tried a NAVMAN ICN630 (with no battery and no touch screen) before I purchased this so the comments are mainly based on my comparison of the two.

The major issues I had with this unit are:

1) Poor signal reception -- the ICN 630 can be placed at almost any place in the car and still with a good enough reception, which is not the case for the 3450 sleeve. I'm thinking about getting an external antenna and see if it'll help since I prefer to mount it at the dash board near the radio.

2) Unstable software -- sometime the application got stuck right at the "agreement" page after the splash screen and it frequently requires resetting. Sometimes it shuts the unit off for no reason.

3) Slow map,re-routing and position update -- Well, it could be my iPaq 3870 that is too slow


However, the $142 price tag is pretty attractive and the user interface was pretty neat (such as the 3D navigation), once you overcome the awkwardness and get used to it. Be able to use stylus to enter the address is another plus. The voice guide is audible at the max setting when there is no radio or music. Battery consumption is hefty, so it's not really practical to be used as a handheld unit without attaching to a power source. It comes with maps that cover the full U.S. and Canada. Software installation involves too many steps and user inputs. Map installation is extremely slow but fortunately you only need to to it once if you have a large enough memory card. The accuracy is OK with plenty obsolete information in the SF Bay Area due to many recent developments.

4-0 out of 5 stars For the money--this thing is fantastic.
I wanted a GPS for occasional trips (especially when traveling in new cities) but I didn't want to spend hundreds to get one. I was thrilled to stumble across this, which also offered the chance to get some use out of my dusty Ipaq 3670. As GPS's go, it's definitely at the low-end, but it works just fine. And for the money it's unbeatable. Even if you have to buy a used Ipaq off Ebay, it's still a great value. The suction-cup mount that comes with it is excellent, and the car charger works great. There are a few minor downsides:(a) It's running off however much RAM is in your Ipaq (mine is 64mb), so it starts a little slow. (b) It can hang if you try to move around menus while it's calculating a route. (c) You really need CF memory if you're going to load more than 1 state into it. 256mb will get you half of the US. All in all, an excellent value and a solid product. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Case latch brike
Product looks nice and worked for a few weeks, the the latch that hold the lid shut broke off.Too much hassle to return since I have already thrown away the reciept.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good case; poor latch
I have had my case for about six months and daily use was low to average. It does not latch anymore which is pretty poor considering its cost.

3-0 out of 5 stars Cost too much!!!
Way too easy to open. No padding at all so the PDA is free to slide up and down and front to back, not good when it's in a hard case. Also not sure how long the TINY latch will hold. Tried putting padding in it but by the time you get it to stop rattling you can't close the lid very securely. It should have a sliding latch to open for the price you pay. It looks nice but it's built like it's made in China (and it is).

1-0 out of 5 stars Badly Designed Case
This is a very poorly designed case, and I would encourage you to look at alternatives before spending your money.The problems I have with the case are:

1.The palm does not fit snuggly inside the case and tends to rattle around.I had to glue a piece of foam inside the front cover to stop the rattle.

2.You cannot get the stylist out, even when the case it open.The edge of the back cover blocks you access to the stylist, so that you must balance the palm between the front and back to retrieve the stylist.Very, very annoying.

3.The case muffles alarms so that they cannot be heard.I've just missed another appointment, so I'm going out tonight and buying a new case with slots for the speaker.

2-0 out of 5 stars It's a done job.........but, not well done
The Tungsten E has proven to be one of my more worthwhile purchases. I have my whole life (just about) and what I plan to do with it right at my fingertips. After spending $200 on it, I figured I had to protect the investment. I originally purchased this Hard Case from the Palm Online Store for $39.99 - 20%. It was rather pricey, but I thought worth the security. On a scale of 1-5, I gave it a 2, as shown above, and I only scored it that way because the Palm is well protected from key scratches and so forth as well as falls to the concrete or floor when in this case. I stress the latter because the satiny outer surface is especially hard to grasp with dry hands, therefore is a drop waiting to happen. And like everyone else here, my latch broke and the case is not securely closed, so any fall could mean the end of this device. Even with the name Hard Case, I would not recommend this case to a man, especially one who plans to keeps it in a pants pocket. It just won't hold up under the pressure. The case itself needs work and for the asking price, it should be able to last as long as the device itself. All in all, if I had to choose again, this would not be my first choice. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Unreliable and unstable
Very unreliable and unstable product. Issues I had with Palm OS5 install:
1. Installation does not occur automatically. It says it will, but nothing happens - so you have to do a manual install. Its easy to do - one just needs to know!!
2. Palm resets every time I use it.
3. Graphics are incomplete (which makes a mapping software kinda useless) half the time. Alleged solution - more memory - did not work for me.
4. Applied their patch - now it freezes if I try to start it!
5. Removed and re-installed - now I am getting GP02 GPS errors - go figure!!

All in all, I had this product for 48 hours from the time I received it in the mail to the time I put it in the return package to the store.

It is not Palm OS5 compliant - it is only (probably - I can't say for sure) compliant with a few specific Palm models. Since when did consumers need to go to the product data sheet on the manufacturer's obscure website to figure this out!!

2-0 out of 5 stars Nice TOY if you already have a compatible Palm
Dylan Spears review is an excellent one. This is product is certainly not for serious use. Software needs lot of work. GPS box is pretty good. Always gets a fix and bluetooth connection is reliable. Navman is going to come up with a new software release in late summer.

Other shortcomings of this products are

1) Lack of charger adapter for Palm. They could have easily used a Y style cable and plug to charge palm.

2)Software always chooses the same route irrespective of the routing option (Fastest / Shortest) chosen. e.g. San jose to LA always picks 580 to I-5. Shorter route is 152E to I-5.

3) Suction mount for GPS is inconvenient. Power plug and the indicator is on the glass side. You have to hunt for power switch to turn it on and then in day time it's hard to figure out whether it is ON or not.

4) GPS hw always turns off even if external power is present. You always have to turn it on. Kind of annoying.

5) SW crashes often. It will start repeating a turn again and again and again then die.

6) Suction mount for PDA has wrong orientation if you want to mount it on the windsheild left to your steering (best position). Glue on Plastic base is not heat resistant. Falls off in an hour if you leave your car in sun.

7) Database errors. Out of 10 destinations 3 were wrong. They were not in a new area.

8) Limited display option. You can not see time and distance to destination at the same time.

9) Does not understand zip code. Takes lot of time to enter an address.

2-0 out of 5 stars Too many obvious omisions...
The maps and GPS receiver function well, but the software has several obvious omissions that undermine the true potential of the system:

1). Doesn't allow listing POI's by distance from your current location - instead it lists all POI's in the database in alphabetical order. When in an unfamiliar area, I'd like to be able to select restaurants or gas stations and have the software list all available sorted by distance from my current location, rather than requiring me to know the exact names and locations. I mean, for a gas station, what's more important, the name or how close it is? (Especially when you're running on fumes in an unfamiliar area).

2). Lack of integration with native Palm software applications, most notably the address book/contact database application. It really should be able to link to the address book to plot contact addresses - that is such an obvious omission. It doesn't even allow you to copy and paste addresses into the navigation software.

3). Tapping on a location or POI on the map causes a pop up menu to appear that allows you to see the name of the POI or street and to select it as a "departure" or "navigate to" point or to add it to your favorites, but a more helpful and useful feature would be to have the name, address and phone number pop up - and to offer the option of adding that information, not only to the favorites list but also to the Palm's address book for future reference and use.

4). Lack of road-type options. It allows you to avoid toll roads and urban areas and allows you to select either quickest or shortest routes, but having the option to select most or least use of freeways or side streets would really be helpful...as well as having the ability to reroute around traffic congestion.

5). The POI feature does not allow text entry searching, instead you start with "country" then "category" then "type" and finally "area". Having the ability to type in a name or partial name would be very helpful when trying to locate specific points of interest...like a restaurant. For example; a search for a restaurant in Dallas, TX requires you to go to the Points of Interest screen, select a country, select a category (Food and Drink), select a type (restaurant) and then provide an area to search. If you type in "Dallas" for the area you are provided with a list of restaurants in alphabetical order through which you may scroll down four screens - which doesn't even get through the "A"s...so, unless you only like eating at restaurants that have names beginning with either numbers or letters from "A" through "AL" then you won't be finding what you want on this software. Attempting to narrow down the search by entering a zip code for downtown Dallas just makes the software default to listing every restaurant in the state - again only four screens of scrollable selections - hope you like eating at restaurants with numbers for names. As a result of this problem, the POI feature is basically useless.

6). The company does most of its business in Europe and that fact is evident by the software's menu layout, some menu items and the use of European spelling (i.e. petrol stations, exhibition centre). This product was clearly ported over from European versions of the software and was rushed to the US marketplace without adequate "real world" testing and as a result, the final product much more resembles a playful toy than a serious tool. In fact, you could say that a more appropriate name for the Navman SmartST software would be the Navman DumbST software ;) The software translates fairly well for the most part, but I'm hopeful that future versions are more tailored to the way Americans think and the way this country is mapped out.

Though no application is ever a panacea, there are just a few too many compromises required with this particular system to justify keeping it. I plan to return my Navman in hopes of finding a Palm GPS system that's more feature rich and better integrated with the Palm computing platform's applications.

1-0 out of 5 stars bad map, no intelligence at all
I have the PPC version of this(DELL AXIM30), nothing but disappointment. Not sure if the PalmOS's better.

pros: 3d looks fantastic.

cons:
1)i was going down I-5 toward LA, and the software kept telling me to go back north because it chose to go another route. It didn't correct itself until half way between LA and SF.

not to mention small streets.

2)require frequent rebooting. it locks up a lot! if you turn off and on the Bluetooth, or turn off/on the PPC, everything need to be reset.

Right now i just leave it in the car, not using it. My wife don't trust it at all. what a waste of money.

Probably I will try the other brand (software) on this receiver and see if it's better.

1-0 out of 5 stars Beware - Not compatible with Sony Clie
This product is not compatible with the Sony Clie PEG-TH55 and possibly other Clie models. The problem is that the Bluetooth link is lost every few minutes and it is necessary to turn both the Clie and the Navman off and on again before they will reconnect. This makes it unusable for navigation, especially if you are driving by yourself.

After weeks of frustration, Navman confirmed the Bluetooth problem in an email:

Dear Customer,

After extensive research and testing the issues you are experiencing with your Sony CliƩ and the GPS 4460, we have discovered that there is a compatibility issue where the Sony will not accept the data sent from the GPS 4460 and will close down the Bluetooth connection.

As the problem does not lie specifically with the Navman GPS Receiver, we can unfortunately not change our receiver the make the whole system work.

In Light of this, we ask that you please go back to your retailer for a refund, indicating that the Sony CliƩ is not compatible with the Navman GPS 4460. The retailer should then contact Navman for any formalities regarding the refund.

Thanks for your understanding.

---

Even when it was working the software lets it down. It takes a long time to start up on - typically 20s on a Clie and if you switch to another application to look up an address you have to wait another 20s while it re-starts.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected
The second image posted shows this case opening like a wallet, with a space to store cash. This is an error as the case doesn't open like this.I will use the other reviewer's advise about the velcro tho because I can see it slipping already.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great case, great price....
I've been very pleased with this case.It is durable, doesn't add much bulk, looks great and protects beautifully.You have to adjust the elastic on the left side a wee bit to attach the cable but it really isn't much trouble at all. I like the loop closure and haven't had any problem with the Zire falling out at all. I like it so much I've just ordered another for my daughter.

4-0 out of 5 stars Zire 31 loves it, Tungsten doesn't
This case fits my fiance's Zire 31 well.The power button, the synch and power plugs are slightly blocked, but that is okay.It is snug and protects it well without being bulky.

My Tungsten E juts out on the top and slides around a little.I wouldn't feel safe keeping it in this case.

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't Think You Can Beat Leather!!
Soft and friendly-feeling case in the hand. Nice to hold!Fits Zire 31 perfectly, I agree! Doesn't slide around on upholstery like clam-shell plastic case might. Looks classy. Haven't had problem with the "tab" closure yet! Price was great! I recommend this item!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Case
I just received the leather case a few days ago, but it is a great little case and at a great price.The only thing I might change is the fact that it only has 2 slots for the expansion cards - 4 would be nice.There are so many cards you can have for maps, games, dictionary, or just additional memory card; it would be nice to have them right on hand. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Just very bad!
This case from PalmOne is just crap. It breaks so easily that you can't believe. Stay away from this case, you'll lost your money for sure.

1-0 out of 5 stars Sucks hard
Latch breaks easily (e.g. first time it fell out of my backpack). Tungsten flops around inside. Hard to hotsync, access ports or stylus, or press the power buttonwithout lifting palm out of case.In short, it sucks!I'm buying the Innopocket Deluxe Metal Case.I'll try to write back with a review on that one.Meantime, avoid this one at all costs.Bad reviews follow it everywhere it goes.

1-0 out of 5 stars A botch.
Gentle reader, believe the annoyed reviewers of this product. I think you'd be happier just shoving your T5 into an old sweat sock: protection would be similar, the ease of access to ports and the stylus would be more or less as difficult, and, at very least, the sock would not rattle, nor would it ding the screen. The price would certainly be more in line with the utility, too. The single previous reviewer who waxes rhapsodic seems, unfortunately,to be describing a totally different case; this one has no belt clip. Perhaps that one is, in fact, "awesome;" this one's simply awful.

2-0 out of 5 stars Jill
The case scratches too easily.The clasp is difficult to open and close as it is not aligned properly.

2-0 out of 5 stars Could have been much better.
It took me quite sometime to make a decision in upgrading to the T5 from my reliable Palm Vx. I considered the investment in the hardcase a smart move, given the healthy investment I made in purchasing the T5. The rebate on the case is the only reason I gave it 2 stars instead of 1. When inserting the T5 into the case it appears to be a mismatch. It is not a snug fit at all (it rattles in the case). You have to completely remove the handheld from the case to connect to your power and hotsync cable. You can't retrieve the stylus nor retract or insert a SD card without lifting the handheld from the case. I consider the case nothing more than a mobile carrier for the handheld. Simple design considerations could and would have made the case much more compatible with the hardware it is meant to house. I intend to purchase a Wi-Fi card in the near future. I already realize now that the handheld cannot be in the case if you have the Wi-Fi card inserted. Like I said, the rebate is the only positive when purchasing this (Palm must know that too, hence the rebate). ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Much better than the cradle my Tungsten C came with
I hesitated to purchase the cradle since the reviews seemed to be so mixed.But, I'm glad I bought it.Such a great deal compared to buying it from PalmOne.

It connects to my Palm with a very positive click.I feel much more secure having my Tungsten C in this cradle.The original cradle didn't hold it as securely, and sometimes I almost dropped my PDA putting it in, as I thought it was locked in, but it wasn't, and almost slid out heading for the floor...doah!Not with this cradle. It holds it very securely.

I like the blue-white glow; it helps me to remember to turn off my surge protector.

It holds the PDA at an angle closer to vertical than the original cradle.I like this too, as the old cradle had it laying back too far, and causing glare on the screen.Not a problem with this new cradle.

My only gripe is that it's so light that you really need two hands to connect PDA, remove PDA and hotsync.You need to hold down the base with your other hand to keep it from sliding across the desk.It has rubber on the bottom, but it's not enough to keep it from sliding.

This is the cradle that should have come with my PDA.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not totally convinced yet.
I'm still a little bitter over buying Palm's piece of crap usb sync cord which broke after maybe three uses.This new cradle gets 5 stars for style, but a 3 for usability.The always-on LCD doesn't bug me much because I bought this cradle to use in my office, so I'm not there when it's dark.The light isn't that noticeable under normal lighting conditions.

I find that it doesn't connect very securely to the palm.You have to pay attention and make sure that the green light is on indicating that your PDA is charging.In all fairness, I just got a new PDA case that required me to put velco on the back of my palm....so maybe the thickness of the velcro is causing some of my connection troubles.But I don't have this issue with my regular cradle at home.

So far this cradle is working pretty well, I just wish it connected as nicely & securely as the traditional cradle.A slight jar or bump will cause the PDA to lose connection to the device.So you might leave it at your desk and come back to find that it hasn't charged after all. So watch out!

3-0 out of 5 stars Does the job, except for that light.
I bought the cradle for use with my Tungsten T3. It does the job; it's solid enough that it doesn't slide around on my desk, and guides the T3 to the connection port with little effort. My only complaint is that while the white LED glow that emanates from the base looks nice, I find it somewhat annoying. As an LED, it doesn't generate any noticeable heat and I'm sure that it draws very little power; still, it's a feature I'd like to be able to disable without having to unplug the AC adapter.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good cradle - heavy power supply
This is a good charger that works as advertised.
However, I had hoped I could also use it as a travel charger. It can work that way, but the power supply is heavy and so it is not optimal for that purpose.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great things come in small packages.
This cradle works as advertised. It is dramatically smaller than the standard cradle that came with my Tungsten C. The connection to the palm is much tighter than the standard cradle - you can feel the little clips click into the Palm which assures me of a good connection. It is cool with the lights, but as mentioned in another review, you can't turn off the backlight unless you unplug it. The backlight is brighter than I expected, but I like that fact...

I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a cool looking, small sized replacement or spare. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent protection with some minor flaws
I bypassed many universal cases to wait for this one.I chose it mainly because my Zire 72 fits snugly, it offers excellent protection, and the inclusion of the camera door.I do agree that the left-swinging cover takes some getting used to, but I don't think it's as much of a problem as the other reviewers.I got used to it fairly easily.

I have two problems with this case.One is the lack of access to the voice memo button.The other problem is the expansion card holders behind the handheld; you have to remove the handheld from the case to get to the holders.Other than these minor problems, this is an excellent hard case.If you don't use the voice memo function often or use a lot of expansion cards, I would recommend it to anyone with a Zire 72.

2-0 out of 5 stars Very unconfortable!!!!
The good thing about this hard case is that it'll protect the handheld. Those who are left-handed will have no problems, but us right-handed will find it very unconfortable. Since it does not fully open,(the picture above that displays as open as it can be) the case will be in your way to hold it. An other thing that I didn't like was that in order to retrive the expansion cards held in the hard case, you have to take off first the handled in order to be able to get the cards.
I wouldn't recommend this hard case if you are right handed

1-0 out of 5 stars Would not recommend this case
I was very eager to get this case for my new Zire 72. It's certainly a beautiful case, but not very functional. The front cover doesn't flip all the way under, so that if you're holding it with your left hand, it's difficult to reach the control buttons with your left thumb, as you should be able to. You cannot access the voice recorder button or the slots for the expansion cards unless you remove your zire from the case. Also, the top and bottom are completely open, which provides ready access to the slots, etc, however it does nothing to protect my zire from debris, etc, from the bottom of my purse. Also, the cradle impedes my access to the stylus slightly.

I do like the sliding window in the back that opens so that I can take pictures and video, though.

5-0 out of 5 stars Zire 72 Hard Case
Re: former posts, this case is wonderful, and is definitely for right-handed people.
Hold it w/left hand and use stylus w/right hand.Works perfectly.Protects perfectly.I highly recommend this case for the Palm Zire 72 handheld.
Go buy it; it's worth it.

3-0 out of 5 stars You can learn to adapt, but please fix the lens door.
Overall, I have adapted to holding the case in my left hand.I slide my index finger thru the top door right indention and my thumb around to the opposite indention (kind of like holding a pistol). With my other fingers extended, it supports the back of the hard case and keeps it a secure writing surface.It took a little getting used to, but it works and is comfortable.Having the door open the other way would have been better.I used to clip my zire 71 on my belt and have broken it by doing so. So when I got my Zire 72 and hard case, I decided to just keep it in my pocket anyway and would not have used the belt clip if offered. The thing that I can't accept is that I have had my case for 2 months, and the sliding door to the camera lens has already worn out. It now slides freely back and forth with no resistance.It does not have a spring in it so when the plastic wears down, (boom!) the door "flies solo".I am worried that I will scratch the lens so I keep it in my left pants pocket with no keys, pens, coins, etc. for that reason.Except for the lens door, I would have been completely satisfied.If the warranty covers this issue, I am sticking with this case. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Also Works With Tungsten C
Everyone seems to overlook the fact that these ALSO work with Palm Tungsten C's.
I have a Tungsten C and 2 of these units. I keep one Power To Go in my charger cradle at all times and carry the other with me everywhere I go. I swap them with each other and that way I always have the capacity to fully charge my Tungsten C at any time. The only reasons I don't leave it attached at all times is that the Tungsten C won't fit in my case with the unit attached and the user manual says not to.
I rely heavily on my Tungsten C for reference applications and journals at work as well as pleasure (game playing and LOTS of reading) and video, so it would spend a LOT of time on the charger cradle if not for these clever little buggers. I can get 1 full charge and another half to 3/4 charge out of one fully charged Power To Go unit with my Tungsten C. You can Hot Sync even while the Power To Go is attached (and even fully charge both Palm AND POwer To Go at the same time in the cradle).
My sister who doesn't use her Zire 31 nearly as much is frustrated that Power To Go won't work with her handheld and she has to either carry her charger cord with her or recharge her unit almost daily.
This unit is SO worth it if you rely on a fully charged handheld on a daily basis. I was just looking for these on the Palm site and they are no longer listed there, so I wonder if they will continue to manufacture them.
You'd be wise to get at least one while you can...and remember: THEY WORK WITH TUNGSTEN C, TOO!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth its weight in gold!
As a heavy Palm user, I've found PalmOne's Power To Go quite handy.When its attached, it 1) charges my Palm and 2) is still usable on any Palm keyboard.It can 3) also be charged in a cradle and 4) be synced while its linked.(Hey, that rhymes!)Its use is thus totally transparent.

The only thing that it won't do while attached is fit in my T3's hard case, which isn't a very big deal.

I use my Power To Go mainly at work.When I'm checking email or voice mail at my desk, I'll normally keep the Power To Go unit attached to my Palm - so that my T3 is always at its maximum charge in case I get pulled away to a long meeting (where I'll take notes using a keyboard with my PDA).When I'm gone, I'll leave the Power To Go unit in my cradle - to juice it back up!

But if I'm going to a meeting which I know will put unusually high demands on my Palm - then I'll take the Power To Go unit with me - so I never need to worry that my T3 will ever run out of gas.

The Power To Go sled attaches by grabbing on to slots on the back of every Palm (which I never knew were there), so the connection is very positive and one that will not let go accidentally.

The Power To Go unit also has a light which, when lit, tells you that its charging your Palm.So, if it should ever go out - then you'll know that you're running on your Palm's battery alone - and that its time to recharge the sled.

If you're a heavy Palm user like me, PalmOne's Power To Go will allow your Palm to always stay in the game!(I've never felt more helpless than to be in a meeting - with a dead Palm!)I highly recommend it!
