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."

GPS Review: Magellan Roadmate 760

A decent GPS review has hit the wire on the Magellan Roadmate 760. The top of the line automotive GPS Receiver from Magellan, has many high end features, and is fairly well repected and rated. Some of the well liked features are the fact that it has user profiles available, which allow you to have your own sets of detinations and preference settings. this can come in handy if you share with other workers or members of the household. Of course a big thing is that the device comes pre-loaded with Maps and Points of Interest for your region (Like North America), as well as other regions (like Eurpoe) that you can later unlock for a fee. Not bad if you happen to travel there and want to navigate your way on the roads, unlock and go.
