T,

I'm not aware of any PDA that comes with a built-in GPS.

A PDA usually has a GPS card inserted in its card slot.

As far as a "GPS program", something like OziExplorer CE can be loaded which utilises data input by the GPS. You also need to load map data to display within OziExplorer. Destinator is another program that can be run on a PDA.

I suggest you look at www.gpsoz.com.au or www.ja-gps.com.au to get some further information.

Sand Man,

The Acer definately has an inbuilt GPS, I also have one and they are a nice little unit. I only run Co-pilot off it for street nav but in time I will progress to the OziExplorer CE once I fully wrap my head around this program (probably about the same time they stop making OzExp. haha).

Best Regards
Trevor.

OziExploreCE

Read about it here

www.oziexplorer.com/

Buy it here

Site Link

To get full benifit out of OziExplorer you will need both the PC version and the CE version.

An OziExplorer users group is available here

An OziExplorerCE users group is available here

Hi T,

not sure of the best places to buy this software, maybe try ebay or johnny appleseed, but i'd suggest looking at Tom Tom software. I have used a couple of others including destinator and navigator and Tom Tom is my preferred one so far (even has the option of an "aussie" accent :)

maybe look around for demo ones to download.

BTW Sand Man, there are quite a few PDAs around now with inbuilt GPS like HP and Navman ( the HP has inbuilt everything from what i have seen!)

Rob.

PS, anyone know what happened to GPS OZ?? haven't been able to get onto their website for ages!

Well I can't work that one out, I have tried plenty of times with the same favourites and links through google but it times out everytime.

Ah well... all is good. There you go T.... another place for you to look for software, they give great advice too.

thanks for checking Al

Rob.
