Hi there.

I use an iPAC 3870 with my Magellin GPS and find it very satisfactory.

Go to this site and ask your questions there. All will be revealed.

Hi Bonz.

If you go to the site mentioned, it is usually also monitored by a guy called Brian Sommerville. I think he lives in QLD. His business is to sell and supply, (amongst other things), after market cabling between iPACs and various GPS's. I got my cable from him. His prices are by far cheaper than you can get any genuine cabling, if you can get such an animal in the first place.

If you want any more detailed info, send me an email and I will give you names and email addresses of guys far more qualified than me and only too happy to help you, as they did me.

Regards

Brian's in Sydney and has a website gpsoz.com.au. He's a good contact for marrying up your iPAQ and GPS.

Cheers,
Stuart

10 Para,

I just got a ipaq 2210 on the way through Singapore last week ($600 - about $120 less than best price here in oz). Works great, got a cable from gpsoz.com.au to link up the emap and the ipaq. The Ipaq gets charged with this setup and the emap get powered. They 5500 might have a larger screen than the 2210 as well (I think), depends on what else you are after. I got a bluetooth adaptor for the pc for $70, so now i can sit on the couch at home and surf the net or use messenger, or whatever as well. Keeps the mrs quiet when the news is on as well cos she plays all the games I have downloaded to it. Memory cards are getting cheap for them too. About $200 for a 512 meg CF card, so lots of maps (about 3 megabytes a map) and lots of MP3 files to play in the car via a cassete adaptor. Made myself up a bracket from aluminium last week for mounting the thing on the dash. Here is a few pics:

Oh, yeah - when I was looking on Oz, these guys had about the best price I could find on the net.
