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. ...

Amazon.com Product Description

Early Adopters Pick: August 2003. The first PDA to include integrated GPS technology.

With the power of Palm OS 5 and the dependability of Garmin GPS technology, this super PDA redefines multitasking. Its integrated software not only allows you to look up appointments and contacts, it also locates and routes you to them with voice-guidance commands. Feature highlights include: GPS receiver, MP3 player, voice recorder, infrared communication, and vibrating alarm.

GPS
The differentiating feature of the iQue 3600 is its integrated GPS capabilities. Garmin's innovative Que technology delivers location awareness, electronic mapping, automatic route calculation, turn-by-turn voice guidance, and map data interface to the iQue 3600. Que technology enables users to see where they are, find a street address, know where the next turn is via visual and voice guidance, get back on track when they’ve strayed off course, and navigate efficiently to their desired destination.

Detailed Mapping
Users can choose a configurable basemap of North America, South America, Europe, or regions in the Pacific Rim, with generalized information on highways, major city streets, highway exit services, railways, rivers, lakes, and state, provincial, and national borders. The iQue also has the added benefit of detailed street information on the included MapSource® CD-ROM, giving users the capability of looking up restaurant addresses, hotels, local attractions, transportation hubs, emergency services, and much more. Once a desired point of interest is chosen, you have the capability to view more info or even show it on the map screen. The mapping capability of the iQue 3600 makes it a versatile companion for the international frequent flyer who travels, for instance, between New York and London or San Francisco and Hong Kong.

Customizable maps mean never getting lost again

Powerful Organization
The iQue 3600 is built around the Palm OS 5 platform and offers standard Palm applications, such as Address Book, Calculator, Date Book, Memo Pad, and To Do List. And there’s enough processing power to search large databases of stored information and to enhance display graphics with easy-to-read fonts and crisp electronic maps. There's also a voice recorder for making memos, quick notes, and messages. With 32 MB of built-in memory and an expansion slot, you can even store your favorite MP3s.

The flip-up GPS antenna
High-Tech Integration
One of the key benefits of technology integration on the iQue 3600 is its patent-pending contact-locator feature. Enabled by Garmin's Que technology, this feature connects the Palm Address Book and Date Book to the GPS electronic map to give the user the ability to navigate directly to a specific address within the user’s contact database.

System
The Garmin iQue 3600 features the new Motorola DragonBall MXL ARM9 microprocessor, and boasts 32 MB DRAM. This handheld is powered by Palm OS 5, which offers the processing power to take on the most demanding mobile computing tasks, together with advanced multimedia and the wireless connectivity and security that enterprises require.

Display
The iQue 3600 delivers brilliant images with its 2.16-by-3.24-inch display. It has a 16-bit color display with 320 x 480 pixel resolution.

Expansion
Expand your iQue 3600 via its Secure Digital slot.

Software
The iQue 3600 comes with the following Garmin Que applications: MP3, GPS Clock, Address Lookup, Electronic Mapping, Track Log, Trip Computer, Automatic Route Generation, and Turn-by-Turn Voice Guidance, as well as these Palm OS 5 applications: Address Book, Calculator, Date Book, Expense, Mail, Memo Pad, Palm Reader, and To Do List.

2-0 out of 5 stars It is hard to deal with curstomer service
If you want to buy it, just hope it won't show "route calculation error".Here is the email I sent to them last year and I am still waiting for reply.

"Howdy!
I called two times hoping to find answers of "route calculation error".Unfortunately the problem still exists.
For the first time I used my new iQue 3600 during my trip to San Antonio, TX on August 6 to August 8, 2004.I was amazed at the functions the small one offered.It helped me a lot, especially in the downtown area.On my way back to home, the iQue stopped working and the "route calculation error" appeared on the screen.I had big trouble to find home back.
After I got home, I called tech support and after several attempts I was told to reload the map.After reloading the map, the route calculation error disappeared temporarily.
Today, August 24, I received my friend's new address and I couldn't route to her address and "route calculation error" appeared again.
Today's customer specialist, Doug, after several attempts, still suggested to reload the map.To me it is not an option anymore to solve the problem.I can not reload the map all the time, especially when I am away on road without my computer.If I knew that I would need to reload the map so often, I would not buy it in the first place.
Anyway you know your products better than me.I hope the problem can be solved quickly, otherwise I have to request the return of the product either to the store or to Garmin.
Thank you.
Feng Qin"

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Product, but does have some faults.
I bought this unit several months ago in anticipation of trip to Italy because of the detailed maps available through Garman. Well, the street detail was breathtaking! Venice is a very complex city with alleys & tiny streets that are bunched together in an impossible maze. As long a I got a clear signal (a drawback of any GPS unit)I knew EXACTLY where I was. Walking directions were right on.
But, back stateside I started seeing some limitations with the unit: 1) Driving directions were not that great, taking you on round about routes in spite of requesting the least # of turns and/or highways (not side streets), 2) the battery life is terribly short and needs to be put back onto the cradle for re-charging, 3) it's a rather fragile unit - I'm somewhat of a klutz from time to time and have dropped the unit which then needed to be reset.
The PDA part of this unit was a welcome bonus. I purchased a 1GB memory card which gave me the maps I needed plus plenty of extra memory. I loaded Pocket Quicken on it which enables me to keep track of my personal finances away from my desktop. Overall - worth the investment.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic product
Really nice product and worth every cent.I own a Garmin StreetPilot and have used a Palm PDA so I found this really easy to use.The ability to drag maps around to find places is amazing.

The integrated PDA functionality really adds value.A must for anyone in sales that travels (you could actually know where your taxi is going and where to find dinner in any city).

If you are just doing navigation for your car you could just go with a StreetPilot - a bit easier to use.My third great GPS from Garmin.

PS. Some of my kids first words in the car "turn right daddy" - copying my nav systems audio - Dad's car talks!

4-0 out of 5 stars User for 9 months
My 3600 GPS did not work the first time and was returned.After a new one was sent, it started working well.There are two detailed manuals which you should study (I downloaded and studied while I was waiting for delivery).For clarification on their 'too detailed instructions' I had to call their service about 5 times each spending 20 minutes on hold.Now that I have had it I can't do without.It is accurate 9 out of 10 new addresses I enter so don't trust it 100%.I use it everywhere (East coast and West coast).I use it to get to any new address and very valuable even trying to get out of a large parking lot after I arrive.After 3 months I started to use it to find shops and eatery while on the road.If you don't remember exactly a specific address, you can get there if you remember a store close by.The unit requires a soft reset every few weeks.The biggest plus is that you never lose your addresses because you sync it up with your home computer. There is a selection of 'fastest path or shortest distance' which could be confusing if selected wrong.I realize there are other GPS which are more costly, longer battery life with larger fonts but for the money it is the greatest product since the PC.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent product and very useful.
I moved to a new city and bought this PDA upon my friends recommendation and I must say that I am very pleased with it. It has been of great help to me when I get lost or am exploring new areas of the city.

So far I have had no issues with it. I highly recommend this to anybody. The only thing I'd suggest is to get a car kit and antenna so that it does not attract prying eyes while driving. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product - Easy to Learn & Use
This is my second GPS and 3rd or 4th PDA so maybe it was easier for me than it would be for others.But, I found the iQue 3200 to be a great product.Super easy to install the software on XP PC desktop, load the maps to a 512M SD card (purchased separately) and hit the road.I loaded 1/3 of the US on my card and tested routes to my church, son's school and wife's office (all of which were listed as "places of interest" on the maps) in less than 10 minutes.

I did a lot of research and would buy it again in a heart-beat.

1-0 out of 5 stars This product needs to "GET LOST"
Sorry...I REALLY wish I could write a good review of this product, but if possible, I would be rating it with LESS than 1 star.I am extremely disappointed and currently packing it up for return.

All previous reviews (until May 3rd) for this product were good so I was excited.However, upon receipt of the product and attempts to install it, I ran into many of the same problems that the reviewer below did and have been trying to get this product to work for 2 weeks with absolutely no luck and nothing but frustration and the run around by the manufacturer.

I even hired a computer consultant with lots of experience installing similar products and he said that he has never had such a problem with a product before either.

Don't waste your time or your money.

1-0 out of 5 stars Nice idea; poor execution, esp. in software & interface
This is a great idea.The idea of have maps in a PDA device is super.The hardware is very good and high quality.

The software and documentation, unfortunately, leave very much to be desired.The documentation and the hardware display often do not match.For example, when explaining how to use GPS, the documentation refers to taping a QueGPS icon.Unfortunately, there is none.You find that the icon on the screen is called GPS.There are many other instances of sloppy, confusing and vague explanations.The softwareis very geekie, assumes that you know what is not disclosed in the guides and is monumentally frustrating because of the poor documentation.Oh, did I mention that it takes forever to download because of some of the dumbest programming imaginable and an even dumber user interface?

An early indication of the poor documentation is that when you are confused by the missing, confused, vague and contradictory explanations given by Garmin and you go to the website, you find more than 50 FAQs.Many of these FAQs do not clearly explain what is necessary and are themselves vague and confused.You rapidly become more and more confused.

If you try to load maps on to your SD card and there is not enough space on the card, the download software executes the entire download process to conclusion (which process may take 30-45 minutes to complete) and passes you a message that the process failed because there was insufficient card space.There is only one word to describe such programming: STUPID.Any journeyman programmer that would not query the SD card and compare the empty space vs. the proposed download maps show be fired.At Garmin, he was apparently promoted to the software documentation section to make havoc over there.

Downloading software to an SD card is (surprise!) partially undocumented, vague and confused.Garmin assumes that everyone who uses its software has used it in the past and is familiar with it.(Must be that rogue programmer.)

If you load maps for one part of the country onto your SD card and then try to load e.g., Topo maps for your vacation for another part of the US, you find that SURPRISE! your home state or region maps have been wiped out even though there was plenty of space on your SD card.This is another instance of STUPID programming that wastes hours of time.

The Maps:The maps are detailed and, when loaded and the hardware works, do a fine job.However, whoever conceived the download procedure should be tortured with Chinese water tortures for eternity.

If you want to download the maps of an entire state (or horrors! a region like NY, NJ + CT), you have laboriously to load minute sections of each state map (examples: the upper Bronx for NY State; a section of Queens, etc.).

The result is that if you want to load a few states, it can take 30-45 minutes of repetitive clicking to get them set up for downloading and you risk repetitive stress syndrome.Then the download process takes another 15-45 minutes.Can you see why it is an outrage to go through this entire procedure only to be told that it failed because there was too little SD card space?Hello, Garmin this is DUMB, DUMB, DUMB and needs to be fixed.

Why there could not be a "lasso" command to allow you to grab the maps of an entire state or region is not explained.This is just silly programming.

Of course, if you want to keep two sets of maps (City and Topo) on your SD card, that cannot be done so you must waste more time re-clicking and re-downloading.Is there any rational life in Olathe, Kansas.

The hardware is good but nowhere can you find what cables and other things are in the box (Shhhhhhh: It's a Garmin secret; Garmin won't even disclose it on the website.)Consequently, you may buy accessories that you do not need like I did.

Conclusion: nice idea but the documentation and software need a thorough revamping.Garmin has produced so many GPS systems in the past (there is a list on the website with scores of them - did you know that Columbus used a Garmin GPS system but the interface was so bad that he landed in the new world?)that this junkie, kludgie, stupidity prone software is unforgivable.

If you are unemployed, retired or have a great deal of time and the patience of a saint, this is a good device.Otherwise, run for the hills!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Accessory to any Car
I purchased the iQue 3200 2 months ago and have really enjoyed using it.It's easy to set-up and get on your way.The maps are very detailed and I'm able to find most of the things within its database of commercial businesses.My only complaint is that you can't re-label a food establishment to say a gas station or hotel to a hospital.

Navigation system works flawlessly and the screen is more than adequate to read as it automatically zooms in when coming up on a turn.The navigational voice is clear and easy to understand and it's already saved me time in knowing the exact route to my destination and re-calculating a new appointment (I'm in sales).Fits well in my car and overall I'd give it a 4.25.It'd be nice to have longer battery life and Internet capability, but for my use, it will suffice.

5-0 out of 5 stars Get lost.(Not with this PDA.)
My girlfriend and I are avid campers.Preferring maps to megabytes, she was skeptical when I added a Garmin iQue 3200 to our gear kit.Her doubts melted away when the unit delivered us to the gateways of half a dozen obscure Florida state parks with ease.

I'm no fan of complex electronics, and apparently neither is Garmin.The unit is simple to set up and install in a vehicle.It has a pleasant yet commanding voice -- we call "Jane" -- that frees us of having to look at maps enroute, so we can truly enjoy our adventures.

A 256 megabyte card is more than adequate for our southern trips. When we branch out, I'll just add more cards.

In addition to travel, I intend to use the unit in my new real estate career.With Jane prompting me, I'm confident I'll be able to spend more time focused on my clients, which is the key to sales.Being able to store addresses as waypoints is invaluable.

The PDA, itself, functions fine.There is a little lag when writing, but I'm not exactly a speed demon when it comes to using graffiti anyway.

Bottom line: If you want a powerful PDA with GPS combo, you can't beat the features, price and utility of the Garmin iQue 3200. ... 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. ...
