I've been thinking about buying sat bnav for the car and note that there are a number of PDA based options. This would seem to kill two birds with one stone, but are they any good ?

I guess that's a "don't know" then ?

There is a review of GPS systems in PC Pro this month. These systems appears to be a cheap option if you already have a PDA.

Points to consider are:

You will need power cables to both the PDA and the GPS system;

Many GPS kits can only be used with one model of PDA;

Bluetooth versions are available which will be less restricted in terms of which PDA can be used with them.

Well chaps I invested in a Navman Pin and it satisfactorily navigated me through France, belgium, Germany and a bit of Austria; only once saying I was in a field !
Great bit of kit, thoroughly impressed.
