hi there .
Im after a Navigation System for my Wife for xmas ,its a suprise,Well a big Suprise really,she,s expecting a Car,,HeHe,
Im not too clued up on these so im not sure what too get..
Either a Pocket Pc,and add the Bits on not sure what bits yet ..:O) Or one of theseclick here Or just the nav system on its own.
The thing is if i got the pc i can use it as well ,hehe.but ive got a budget of about £250.With all the upgrades i might need i thought the pc might be better,im not sure tho.
So if any 1 has any ideas 4 me please feel free 2 let me know.

Hi swanny

Have a look at these click here

I use tomtom myself with a pda, I believe all in one units come in at a cheaper price, all you have to look out for is the positioning of the unit.

Theres another expense aintit. :O(.All adds up .

I don't know anything about the Acer n30 and navigation system, but being bluetooth means that the gps unit can be placed in a good position to receive the best satellite signal.

The price looks ok, I can't see why you would need anything else for it as it's a complete kit.

I would ask how old are the maps, and can they be updated, if so, is there a cost involved.

This one looks a better buy click here

Good luck mate.
