  • PDA's - Best recommendations -Klinky-

    I'm looking for a PDA for work use that'll also allow me to use as a GPS unit & wireless internet.

    So far I've looked at the O2's and HP iPAQ rx1950.

    I was also thinking about a PDA with GPS & Phone but I really don't want to go over the $500 if possible.

    Any recommendations?

    Klink, I know you've used one or two in your time, what do you reckon mate?

    from my time at dickies, the navman units sold really well.. but they weren't wireless internet capable, they were ok at being both a pda and gps unit but not fantastic at either, I have been outta the electronics scene for about 4 months now but last i checked i don't know how close to 500 bucks you're gonna get... I would've thought closer to 800 or so...

      So far I've found this for $400 new. No phone capabilities though which is fine, will just have to buy another phone.

          The GPS is what is prob going to push the cost towards the $800 mark. I would also recommending factoring in any accessories you are after getting - extra storage (SD Card etc.), Screen Protectors, Spare Stylus, Case if it doesn't come with one.

            The GPS programming and antenna can be installed. We've got all the mapping programs, I just need that actual PDA now.

            We've converted a Compaq Ipaq 3630 PDA into a GPS, now I just need to find one for myself.

              Grab a Dell Axim X50 and then just get a bluetooth GPS unit off Ebay.

                Klinky is your man cos he has used a PDA for some time and has GPS Bluetooth GPS unit.

                I recently got the O2 Atom (released late December) and am only just getting into the XDA swing. It will also do GPS stuff. Its very small (the only thing that would make me use one) which is great to carry but a bit fiddly to use. Built in WiFi is a great feature.

                So on the eight day, after wasting time faffing about with unimportant guff like heaven & earth & the waters & sky & creatures [& having a wee kip] & man.... God created PSB (GenesiSX-R1000)
