PDA GPS Built In

By: Ron Hel-Or

One of the most useful and exciting features of the newer PDA's, is their ability to serve as real time maps. A PDA GPS built in system serves two purposes – it can help you keep track of your busy schedule as every PDA does, and, it can help you find your way to just about anywhere. You will no more get lost trying to find your way to a new client, to see your son's soccer game, or in a new city. Some of the PDAs on the market don't have a GPS Built In system, so they require a special receiver that has to be bought separately and attached to the PDA.

The PDA's we'll discuss are PDA GPS Built In devices. You get them with the GPS system already integrated into the machine itself – the receiver, the maps, the antenna. Nothing needs to be added.

So here are the selected few pocket PC's that have a BuitIn global positioning navigation system:

1.Pharos Traveler GPS 525 – Includes maps and all your personal data. $388-$529
2.Mobile Crossing WayPoint 200 – A Good PDA and a great GPS. Too Expensive – $599.
3.Mio 168RS (GPS/PDA combo) – practical and cheaper than others. -$209
4.Garmin iQue M5 – Excellent navigation software makes this one of the best PDA/GPS combos. It's expensive – $599
5.Asus MyPal A636 – This is a PDA with a built-in GPS receiver that puts maps and directions on an equal footing with appointments and e-mail. While it delivers accurate directions and long battery life, it's a bit sluggish – not priced yet.

No matter what you use your global positioning navigation system for, you will find that the improvement over traditional paper maps is startling. Instead of trying to drive with the map folded on the steering wheel, the navigation system on your PDA can give you step by step and turn by turn directions to guide you right to your destination. No more stopping at every gas station for directions. Your satellite connected PDA will give you great instructions and keep you from getting lost.

If you are traveling on a regular bases, and often to unknown destination, you'll probably want to consider getting a PDA/GPS combo device. The cost will be considrably less than purchasing these two products separately. Why not stop by your local computer store or internet retailer and take advantage of this great technological breakthrough?
