GPS Garmin iQue 3000

April 22nd, 2006

Palm-based Garmin iQue 3000 is a decent combination organizer and GPS unit, though it comes up a bit short in terms of functionality. A nicely designed PDA, the Garmin iQue 3000 comes with a sensitive GPS receiver. It also has maps of North America plus an SD card. Garmin iQue 3000 operates on Palm OS 5 though suprisingly doesn’t have both Bluetooth & Wi-Fi. It’s design leaves alot to be desired and it performs slowly.

Geo-cachers want to know if Magellan built the eXplorist 600 to take a beating?

March 30th, 2006


GPS-Magellan eXplorist 600 for geo-caching!
Is Magellan eXplorist 600 a feather weight GPS handheld with a blurry screen?
The first thing we felt in our hike with Magellan eXplorist 600 –yeah that’s what we said, felt– was the eXplorist’s tough exterior casing-this baby is for real- tough, durable rubber protected with impact resistant plastic, hell, we even dropped it and banged it around a bit (we don’t recommend doing this ) and Magellan explorist 600 was still up to par– like an old Timex watch–it took a licken’ and kept on tickin’. It even felt pretty decent in my hand at only 2.1 x 4.6 x 1.3, under 4 ounces, not bad at all!

Whoever said light weights can’t be tough was dead wrong. We got a wopping 14 hours out of it’s rechargeable lithium-ion battery and even took it for a swim with no problems cause it’s a waterproof GPS unit watertight & sealed to “IPX-7 specifications”.

Does Magellan eXplorist 600 really deliver PC-like management or mismanagement??

The answer is that Magellan eXplorist 600 GPS is one of the first GPS handhelds capable of delivering PC-like file management. Yup, that’s what I said. A miniture PC it’s not but we were able to create some directories, files and folders.

And we got to give credit where it’s due:

The Magellan GPS map screen was pretty clear and easy to use as was the navigation keypad and joystick control was super smooth. With the 8 MB built-in mapping, unlimited flash-memory expansion & unlimited secure digital (SD) card storage the Magellan eXplorist 600 is designed for both use in the big city and out in the country.

Hassle FREE:

Your geo-cache treasures are not unreachable —no need to go online, grab coordinates, jot them down and then enter them into the GPS handheld.

Magellan geocaching manager software allows you to just easily load the data you need directly to Magellan eXplorist like magic so you can pack-up your gear and be on your way.

When it comes to GPS handheld devices designed for ‘geo-caching’ the 16-color display Magellan eXplorist 600 receiver is second to none. We didn’t want to miss the opportunity to share with you one of the best and most dependable GPS systems around for the outdoorsman.
Great Magellan eXplorist 600 spotted online.

TomTom GO 700 GPS & TomTom GO 300 GPS

February 15th, 2006


TomTom GO 700 GPS
TomTom GO 700 w/Bluetooth support

Is the TomTom GO GPS series making driving more complex than it has to be ??


TomTom GO 300 GPS is all about simplicity without compromising on intelligence. (I think that makes sense without complicating matters too much!)

Its no wonder why the TomTom GO 300 GPS has been heralded with heaps of praise. Due to it’s superior interface which lets you plan a travel route in just a few seconds without any headache .

Add to that the fact that compared to other GPS standalone units, TomTom GO 300 GPS is the only GPS unit that warns of traffic jams with no lag time as it readjusts & recalculates a travel route instantly. No need to suffer with road signs that are incomprehensible anymore causeTomTom GO 300 GPS is by your side making your travels easier.The TomTom GO 300 GPS is the perfect GPS unit delivering pin point accuracy via a built-in SD card that includes 48 states.

If you want to rev it up a bit the TomTom GO 700 GPStakes you to the next level as you get a built-in hard drive plus a speedier chip. A gorgeous touch screen sporting 3D maps along with Bluetooth support lets you use your Bluetooth enabled handheld device whether it be a PDA, smartphone, or advanced cellphone (as long as it’s got Bluetooth wireless technology) to load information onto your TomTom GO 700 GPS
.

TomTom GO 700 GPS is a combination of sophistication and technological superiority. Take for example the Assisted Satellite Navigation (ASN) which allows you to drive in tunnels and not have to worry about losing GPS signals and you can make a phone call to any Point of Interest while a classic on-screen compass mode offers better orientation. One of the coolest features is that the volume of voice instructions actually increases and decreases depending on the speed you are driving.

Can you really see the Tom Tom GPS screen when sunshine is shining on it?? (even while wearing your Raybands??)

You can chill out becuase it doesn’t even make a difference if there is direct sunlight on the TomTom GO 700 GPS because this GPS unit has an anti-glare screen that is gives you an optimal view (at least it did for me) . And that’s only just the beginning of what makes the TomTom GO 700 GPS one of the easiest, most powerful and most popular portable GPS systems ever developed (as TomTom themselves claim).
