Re: sat nav for ipaq

I was using TomTom on the Psion, but I'm trying Co-Pilot on the iPaq.

Will have to see if it has good coverage of Norway ( May holiday ) and Poland ( visiting for a few hours during my August holiday ).

Note, this is for vehicle navigation only as I would always use a map and compass if fell walking!

Re: sat nav for ipaq

Map and compass can't record your route, measure the distance travelled and at what speed.
Therefore it cannot become a source of those oh so interesting after holiday conversations with non walking friends.
Of course map and compasses tend not to run out of power, but the waterproof container I have for the ipaq is considerably smaller than a map pouch so makes you look rather less like an overburdened pack mule with things hanging off every extremity.
GPS is there to complement maps not replace em
