4-0 out of 5 stars Great accessory for the Ipaq
Works quite well. Comes with a suction cup for your windshield, power cable to work with car lighter, map software. Easy to install. You can set up favorite destinations or go to the map, click on map and select any spot as destination. Can include or exclude restaurants, hotels, etc. Turn on/off the verbal instructions. Tracks dead-on on the map. Can scale map up or down for details or big picture of where you are going. Pretty fast, usually only has to think 5 to 10 seconds to figure out new route. Will auto reroute if you don't follow directions exactly. Only downside is that the screen is a little on the small side, and not quite bright enough in sunlight. Takes about 15-20 seconds to acquire satellite signals. Sometimes I have to soft reboot to get it to work. Better than buying a new car to get navigation.

5-0 out of 5 stars Navman GPS 3450 Comments
I have wanted a color GPS handheld for a while. I saw a special on the Navman GPS 3450 and bought. I updated the sleeve's firmware and installed the provided software. I was unable to copy the maps to my 3670 Ipaq directly (the provided software would not see it), so I copied them directly to a flash card. I am impressed with the location finding (usually at least five satellites in about 45 seconds). The direction finding has been good and the voice directions are great, but finding a location entering the address has failed several times leading me to manually find it on the map. The GPS sleeve also works with Microsoft Streets and Trip for PocketPC, but with a slower update speed. Both map programs don't work at the same time, but it is nice to have a confirming map. I use the suction cup to hold a 3670 Ipaq and GPS sleeve on the car window with no problem. I was first afraid that the suction cup and with the weight of the Ipaq would fall off over hard bumps such as railroad tracks, but no problems so far. The power drain form the GPS sleeve is enough that I leave mine plugged into the cigarette lighter when driving.

2-0 out of 5 stars It's OK given the relatively low price
Just got back from my vacation using the GPS. The software required reboot frequently. The map in some area are not accurate. The routing didn't give the fastest route sometimes. You need a real map as a backup in case the software fails on you - it happened to me on my return trip.

1-0 out of 5 stars Confusing docs, software oddities, missing parts
The docs for the 3450 are confusing. The box says iPaq 36xx and PocketPC 2000 (aka Windows CE 3.0). The internal paperwork says iPaq 37xx and above, PocketPC 2002 minimum.

Application itself is odd. Click on "Exit Application" does not shut the app down, I have to kill it via Task Switcher. It attempts to be smart about taking the street/area you're typing in and auto-completing...which usually results in the cursor moving and you have to retype or delete letters.

The 3450 does not support WAAS, so accuracy suffers. I find that on freeways which have frontage roads or long parallel interchange ramps the location jumps back and forth; I'm on the freeway, I'm not on the freeway...

For some unknown reason when I put the iPaq 3630 into the GPS sled it drops the volume way down. This was not the way it operated when I first setup and tried the unit, it just started today. I do a soft reset on the iPaq, sound is maxed and *loud*. iPaq into sled, sound goes way down. Sound *stays* down if I remove the sled, and until I soft reset.

Finally, injury to insult: the box claims that the kit comes with a 12v lighter adaptor for power. Not. Navman customer service is apparently split across two different divisions. The one that handles the 3450 has a phone number that's always busy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent GPS and Ostia software
this GPS device only costs $170 that will lead you all the way to your destination, which functions exactly the same as the one my friend has, and his cost $1800. For the price you paid, this is just way more than you bargain. I never bother to write review, but this is one piece good of eletronic you must have if you have Dell Axim X5.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Product
Even though the manual didn't have all the troubleshooting available to help me configure my X5, I *DID* find what I needed in the FAQs at [manufacturer's web site] - I fly all ovet the country for my job and haven't been lost since I bought it. The voice is pleasant and loud enough to hear, even on the Axim's speaker. The display is bright and easy to see.

This was DEFINITELY worth it's price, and rivals units at 10 TIMES to price. Easily comparable to the Magellan, which costs $1,700.00.

1-0 out of 5 stars Erik Bryant - Can you please explain the install procedure
Erik Bryant from Fremont, CA United States:

I have the iGPS 360 and I have not been able to Get Signal to the PDA using the default Comm 1 port.

Can you send me the instructions or the configurations of the ports (port number, protocol - NMEA/SRIF, and baud rate) please ?

I would appreciate your help on this.

My email id is pgopinathan@hotmail.com

Thanks

5-0 out of 5 stars If you have an Axim, then this item is a must get
I just recieved my PK038 navigator GPS for my Axim. I put the installation CD in, and with one click the installation started for my Axim. Very easy to install. I installed a map of the San Jose area within a few minutes. I hooked it up in my car. Very simple hooking up the cables. I got a signal very quickly and I was on my way. Speed on the GPS is accurate within 1 mile per hour. The navigation is awesome and voice directions are very cool. Re-route works well. The maps look really clear and are easy to view. It is pretty fun to use. It could not have been any easier. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Not compatible with 5400/5500 iPaqs
Wish there had been some mention of this before I got it. The antenna on the 5400 and 5500 series of iPaqs makes it physically impossible to plug this in using a standard CF sleeve. Supposedly it can work if you use a dual CF sleeve.

4-0 out of 5 stars From an Everyday User: Big Improvements Needed
Bottom line: Huge improvements needed but gets a 4 because it's the most comprehensive of what's available for PDAs.

I am a financial consultant and am on the road everyday to new residences and businesses, giving me in-depth knowledge about this particular product. Because many good reviews are listed, I will focus more the drawbacks. Read on for the nitty-gritty details.

The Maps:
The maps can be huge, ranging from a couple megabytes to 15 megabytes. You'll need plenty of memory and a fast PDA. What a map covers depends on how dense the city is. Los Angeles requires about 4 maps while Riverside county is covered in two maps. You can only load 3 maps at a time, so if you're travelling long distances, your destination may have to be somewhere along the highway. Once you get there, load a different set of maps. Loading more maps, though, will reset your start/end points as well as your route. So you'll need to renter the information. Also, the more maps are open, the slower it is to pan across the map.

Finding yourself:
Unlike a static map, the GPS can track your location or you can search by contacts, address, intersection, or major points of interest. Unfortunately, it only lists major venues (e.g. stadiums, major shopping centers) and not places like gas stations (a major drawback). Searching for an intersection without knowing the city can be quite tedious. You first enter a street name, then the city, then the next street name. So if the city is unknown and the first street appears in several cities, you have to try each city until you find the second street.

The GPS:
If you use the system in your car, as I do, the GPS is a mixed blessing. When first starting the system, it may take a LONG time before getting a fix - if you're stopped. If you try to get a fix while moving, that drastically reduces your chances of getting a fix at all. After that, however, it is quick at requisition after going under tunnels and such. Because being in a car weakens the signal, it has a hard time following you after making turns. You may have made a left, but it still shows you as going straight. This is especially frustrating when you cannot stop and wait for it to tell you which way to turn, as in a highway exit with a green light. If you know this will happen, you best look at the directions and memorize the turns. Also, because of the weakened signal, the voice might keep saying, "you are off-route," either because it hasn't yet taken into account that you made a turn or simply because it can't quite pin-point where you are and has you located as driving off-road through blocks of houses. Expect this to happen frequently in mountainous areas or in downtown areas with tall buildings.

Routing:
Routing is a mixed blessing as well. You can route by fastest, shortest, or no highway, and you have a voice telling you where to go. It is fairly quick at routing when you only have one map open. If you're travelling across three maps, it might take a while. Also, it is supposed to reroute you when you have gone off-course, but it rarely ever does that, meaning you have to take your eyes off the road and manually tell it to find a new route. Perhaps the biggest drawback is the amount of time it gives itself before telling you that a turn is coming up. On streets, it makes announcements 0.1 miles before street turns and 0.5 miles before highway exits, meaning you better keep an eye on how far away you are from your next turn. Also, the maps do not use highway-exit names. For example, the Santa Monica exit off the 405 North in California puts you on a street called Cotner Ave, which in actuality is just an off-ramp with a street name. The directions will tell you to exit onto Cotner Ave, meaning you will miss it because you will never see a Cotner Ave. exit on the highway signs. And if the off-ramp does not have a name or does not immediately exit onto a street, it will simply say to exit onto the off-ramp. Along those lines, you better remember your destination address because it doesn't show it to you in the text directions. I always have to switch back to my Outlook Contacts to look at the address because the map will get you to the block, not the specific address (probably to save memory). By the way, the voice simply tells you a turn is coming up - it doesn't actually say the name. But that is forgivable in order to save memory. The map always displays in large font what is coming up and the distance left to make the next turn as well as the distance remaining to your destination.

Battery Life and Memory:
This product drains your batteries and the maps take up a lot of memory, so it would be prudent to get a car adapter and at least a 256MB flash memory module. Do NOT get compactflash because that slot will be taken by the GPS unit.

Bottom Line:
Obvously, there is MUCH room for improvement. I tried many competing products and this one was, by far, the most comprehensive. There are products that list restaurants and gas stations, but use TINY maps of which you can only load one at a time and have limited search, routing, and GPS features. Others have better GPS sensitivity but are much more expensive. Others can show a cross-country route from start to finish on a single map but again, lack in other features.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great gadget but not a replacement for your atlas
I use the Pharos module for the Siemens (ATT) PocketPC phone. For the most part this device is limited because it uses a handheld to display the information. (limited by resolution and screen size, beyond the scope of this review) It will never approach a printed map for clarity, readability or comprehensive data. I have used this device quite a bit.

That said this device does things that a printed map could never do. It will show you exactly where you are, and give you directions to where you want to go - quite accurately. I think the software for the PDA is quite straight forward and intuitive, but the PC side is clunky - and needs further refinement.

The maps are regional only - for example if you are driving in the San Francisco Bay area - you will need to load three separate maps on to your PDA. (I have a 256MB SD/MMC card that has allows me to load the entire state of CA on the PDA).

Don't expect to have the entire US at your fingertips - unless you plan on bringing a laptop with you to synch and load new maps as you travel. I recently drove from San Francisco to Ft Lauderdale - I didn't use the device. It would be good though if you were going to fly somewhere and loaded maps of that area before you left.

My chief complaint is that it will not load neighboring regional maps as you move into new territory - even if they exist on your memory card.

Bottom line: (1) Not a replacement for you atlas or map(s), but a useful aid/enhancement to both. (2) Not a device for non-technophiles. (3) Well-designed software (at least the PDA side). (4) Very accurate.

5-0 out of 5 stars What else can I say!!
After I downloaded the newest version of Ostia and the most up-to-date maps, everything started to come together! Had a little trouble while searching for sepecific addresses with the old version. Maps for Canada, (I bought the Ostia NAV01, the US version) are kinda pricy, but there're ways to get around it ^.~ Over all, it's a great gadget to have for your PDAs. it turned my e740 from a email server to something much more useful!!

3-0 out of 5 stars EZ Use
This little attachment is fantastic. Plug it in and load the software, you're done. As long as you have an open sky with no dense cover, it'll take a minute and you're on your way. I'd rate the GPS CF card 5 stars.

Only reason I gave this 3 stars and not 5 is the software it comes with is very primative. On the PDA it's fine and simple enough to use, but I don't like the user interface with the map software on the PC. In order to use the maps on the iPAQ you have to sync it from the 2-bit graphic interface software on the desk top. If you plan on using the software for cross country road trips, think again. the map software only alows you to plan regional trips within small areas, and you can only plot points from your PDA not your PC. 2 Stars for the software. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Same product at PFO22?
I think that this is the same product (other than some ink on the outside box) as the PFO22 model, which currently has many more reviewer comments. You may want to just refer to some of them.

Intallation seemed fine, the product works okay but not great. It doesn't handle rotaries all that well, since everything is a right hand turn on a rotary. (Web based directions aren't very helpful for rotaries either, which is why I got this item.)

After reading one very negative review for the item, I decided to get the PFD22 instead of the PFO22, so that if it didn't work, I could return it knowing that I had definitely bought the correct item. With what comes in the box, I still don't think there is any difference between the items. (For instance, the software asks you to identify which machine brand is being used to run it.)

The PKO38 model is cheaper, and may be more useful, as it doesn't use up your CF slot. Since the maps require some memory, that CF slot may come in handy. Unless you really want to use the device as a handheld, away from your car and a power source, that model may be better. This one is just a bit "neater", since you can carry it around with you running it off of the PDA power, but if your main goal is to use it in a car, that won't matter too much.

I doubt the device is as good as the stand-alone machines, or those now coming already installed in cars, and I debated between 3 and 4 stars. The cost is so much less than those other systems that I went with 4.

1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible company, horrible product
I have never dealt with such a bad company. I deal with electronics companies daily, but this one takes the cake. I bought the PFD22 from a direct distributor and got the product, with outdated software that would not work on my Axim, OR my WinXP machine. They said I had to pay additional money for the updated software on CD that I just paid for the previous day. I would never EVER recommend this product to anyone. Customer Service at Pharos also took DAYS to get back to me on each reply. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great GPS unit
I purchased this GPS at a clearance for only $5.00! Yes, eat your heart out! I purchased the Jornada 548 for $100 off of Ebay so I have a great GPS unit for only a few bucks.

When I started using the unit, there were several things that I desired in a GPS unit that the software would not do. For instance, I live in a rural area and many of the places that I go are not physical addresses. The upgrade software enables the user to store locations based on GPS coordinates. It cost $29.00 to upgrade and was definitely worth the investment.

As far as reliability, it is solid. It locks onto the satellites quickly and has never lost the signal.

Maps takes quite a bit of space, so I bought a 256 MB flash card and am only using a small amount of that for the 2 maps that I store on my Jornada. I have not taken a trip with it yet, so don't know how it will do at mapping locations between 2 separate maps.

All in all a great unit. I couldn't be happier!

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this GPS
Purchased this GPS to connect to my HP548.
Unit was very easy to set up and install software.
Map files are very large so for any long distance traveling you will need a larger CF card for the map files. I purchased a 256mb just for this purpose.
Initially the unit kept saying to recheck the power connections when I tried to get the GPS to sync with the satellites. When it finally did sync with 3 of the 8 possible satellites it would intermittently lose sync with them making the unit basically worthless. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have for the Toshiba E755 PPC!!
I held off purchasing a GPS system for my PPC for about 2 years. Then I purchased the Toshiba E755 and finally did some serious research on the more popular GPS systems and software, e.g., Co-Pilot, Mapopolis, Destinator, and took the plunge. For the combination of features and price I decided on Pharos, and I'm glad I did (note: there is currently a $50 rebate on the already low price offered at Amazon, effectively dropping the price below $200). One of my unspoken concerns was that it would be a complex process to set it up on the PPC--nothing could have been further from the truth. I pulled out the quickstart card, downloaded the software to my laptop, synced the PPC and downloaded a local map for testing. (Note: as the GPS unit fits in the Compact Flash slot of the E755, you'll want to invest in a SD media card--the downloaded maps are resource hogs. For example, I initially used a 32MB SD card and used about 20MB for two maps; I've since purchased a 64MB card. Be advised Toshiba PPC owners: shop carefully for your SD cards. I was ready to purchase a Sandisk because I've had great luck w/ their CF cards. But having read other Toshiba owners' woes w/ Sandisk SD cards, I went to the company's website and checked for compatibility of their SD cards w/ Toshiba PPCs--they are not) Anyway, read quickly through the salient parts of the owner's manual to make sure I understood the basic functions and turned the system on--inside my house and not seated in front of a window.) About 90 seconds later I was connected to several satellites. I then got into the car and mapped several known routes, all of which were mapped accurately. One word of caution: make sure your "sounds and notifications" are turned on on your PPC otherwise the GPS voice prompts will not function. I did not, but it gave me the opportunity to test Pharos' customer service. I E-mailed customer service one evening about the problems I was having with the voice prompts and I received a reply the next morning outlining the steps I needed to take.

Some of the features I found particularly useful:

-the on-screen display is great; there are several different modes: text directions; maps w/ turn-by-turn indicators (two views); expanded map view.
-voice prompts and turn indicators are very useful.
-w/ automatic re-routing, you'll not be off course for long--I found this very helpful; quick and accurate.
-system provides both a daylight and night view.
-you can use your contacts info in MS to select destinations or points of origin.
-the system comes with the CF GPS, an antenna extension (which I have yet to use; the compact flash GPS has done a great job without it), cigarette lighter power cord for the PPC and a mounting kit.

Bottomline: probably not the flashiest GPS system out there w/ lots of bells and whistles, but for the price, functionality, and accuracy, you can't beat it. For the great PPC the E755 is, this makes it yet more indispensable. I would make this purchase again. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Garmin Street Pilot III training video
I was under the mistaken impression that this video would train a new person in how to use the Street Pilot III. I purchased the Street Pilot III from Amazon.com and this video popped up as a recommended additional purchase. The video is only a few minutes long and is only intended on introducing store sales people on what it is, not how it works. I would not even recommend it for the intended audience since the first time someone asks you a question about the product you will be stumped unless you read the directions to gain familiarity with the unit. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Drive like a local in any town!
I recently returned from a trip to the San Francisco and Berkley areas. It was so nice not to have to follow directions, make mistakes and have to backtrack, but to be able to get the GPS' directions in real time. It's accurate; I was able to drive and anticipate turns and reach my destination accurately and quickly.
I was also very impressed by the ability of the software to concatenate separate maps into a single virtual map.
I found the hardware and software to be reliable.
I'm using this on a Pocket PC Phone by T-Mobile, with 128MB SD memory card (this is where I store music and maps).

Hints:
Wait about a minute after hooking up to acquire satellite data.
If there're tall buildings drive to an open area or turn and the next block to expose a different part of the skies. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Don't Leave Home Without It!
I love this thing!

I hated PDAs... Had no use for the things, until this little gem came along. Pop it in, load up some maps and you've got a pretty sophisticated GPS in your pocket. Now my PDA is always by my side.

It took a little practice getting used to it, but once I did, I started finding my way to and from places I never would've found before. I drove down to Atlanta and spent nearly a month in unfamiliar roads, but I never got lost.

One of the great things about it is that it's integrated with the Contact Manager (which gets synched by the PDA software with Outlook and AOL contacts), so you can find anyone in your contact list.

Here are a few things you should know:

1. Make sure your PDA has TWO memory slots. One Compact Flash for the Pharos, and the other for you to place a traditional memory card. In my case, my PDA has a second SD memory slot which I keep a 256MB card in that has maps for about 3 states that I travel to.

2. Invest in the optional car kit. It gives you:

a) A car power cord so your unit stays on, for your trip without losing power (it also charges your PDA).

b) A cool little holder to hang your PDA on your air conditioning vents so it stays put when you drive.

c) An external antenna to give you a stronger signal. In my case I generally don't use it.

3. Practice for a bit on familiar turf. You need to know how to re-route yourself in a pinch if you make an incorrect turn. I found that the routing was generally pretty accurate, but often it doesn't have North/South/East/West designations, so it may just say "highway exit ahead", when in fact there is a fork in the exit giving you an East/West choice... so you are forced to look at the screen and make a guess as to which one to pick. ...

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.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works Great
Aside from a major collision, it will stay where you put it. Only problem is viewing the screen up on top of the dash. Too much glare, except at night. Am thinking of an external antenna, but that's another 60 to 90 bucks. Otherwise, wonderful.

5-0 out of 5 stars You really do need this if you have the IQue 3600
The friction mount makes it easy to use my IQue in the car. It keeps the screen in easy view, and the speaker on the plug makes it easy to hear the turn by turn directions. I am very glad I invested in the auto navigation kit.

It does work best on a flat dash board. The dash in our suburban slopes away toward the windshield, so you have to turn the GPS sideways to keep the antenna from hitting the windshield. My sedan has a flatter dash and it works perfectly.

You will be able to locate the unit pretty much any place on the dash where you can stand a coke can.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good product, but not slip-proof
You might get the impression from reading the other reviews here that this device never loses its grip even under off-roard conditions. Sorry to say but this isn't true. At least on my sloping dash, I have had to place it on top of one of those "sticky pads" to get it to stay in place at all. And it still isn't really that secure. As others have said here, it would be hard to live without now. The unit is very flexible in positioning the iQue for best visibility, and the charging cable/speaker is great, though a bit bulky around the power plug. Still, until something better comes along this is probably your best choice. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Amazon misrepresented this product.
The product description states that the required car kit comes with the GPS. IT DOES NOT!!!The GPS is not usable without the car kit (another $50.00!!).

The real joy comes when you try and contact Amazon. It was impossible to canel the order. There are also NO Phone numbers listed to talk to a human. This is the last time I purcahse from Amazon.

1-0 out of 5 stars Can't even power on without Car Kit
Disregard the product description where it says the car kit is included.It isn't. The kits will cost you 60.00 additional (not sold at amazon).You can't even plug in the GPS without the car kit, so its useless without it.

If you think you can buy an aftermarket PDA holder, guess again, since the kit TomTom car kit is the only thing that will make this whole thing work.

1-0 out of 5 stars There is NO car kit in the box
This product does not contain a car kit mentioned in the product description. Without this car kit GPS is useless - you cannot plug it into your PDA. Car kit sells for extra $50.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must add on for your Garmin iQue 3600
This is a must add on device. First inside your car you need the dash holder to hold the unit safely. You need the car battery power to keep the unit power happy. You need the additional audio amplifier to give you ample and loud turn prompts. To enjoy using your unit you must get this add on device. You will also need at least a 256 MB SD chip to hold the maps and an external amplified antenna to put on your car's roof. With these add on items your Garmin unit will perform like a champ. I refuse to leave the house without mine. Love it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Get a Zip-Linq instead
The Zip-Linq products available for USB/Palm synch are infinitely smaller and with attachments can be used to power your device off a USB port, a car's cigarette lighter, or A/C power. Of course if you need all of the international power adapters there's nothing wrong with this kit, though again I'd suggest there are more compact versions available. ... Read more
