GPS Review: TomTom Navigator 5 Bluetooth Bundle for Treo 650

Here's a nice write up of getting the TomTom Navigator 5 to work on the Palm Treo 650. for a little under $300, you can lturn your Treo into a TomTom powered turn by turn GPS navigator. Now there were some bumps along th eway, and the process took forever because of slow to get activation codes, but the thing was up and running with only a few hitches. This can be summed up with, "The activation process was a complete nightmare and I'm hoping that I'm the exception rather than the rule."

F-tech Solar 7 Solar Bluetooth GPS Receiver

F-tech Corporation of Taiwan is launching a new GPS receiver that has integrated Bluetooth and a Solar Panel to make it an obvious choice for those who slap a GPS receiver on the dash of a plane or automobile.

The non-slip backing will make it right at home on the dash. The solar panel helps prolong the life of the batteries, but does not take the place of battery power. Still, the manufacturer claims that the battery life can be extended to 30 hours with the use of the solar panel. The folks over at DigitalReviews.com have put it through its paces in the car and in a plane. Their conclusion was:

My slogan in life is: Happiness is No Wires. Bluetooth is great for that. Integrated solar panels even more so. The Solar 7 delivers on both fronts with a sensitivity that is state of the art. Priced at around USD150 to USD170 I predict a bright future for f-tech Corporations latest offspring.
