£282 isn't bad for a PDA with GPS.

Hmmmm...

429 Euro = $517US
Garmin iQue MSRP = $549

I think I'd rather pay the extra $32 and get the larger screen, plus I wouldn't have to mess with an extra "dongle"

Of course, if the US dollar weren't so weak...

Could you order it from a US company and pay around £300 for it? That's the current amount for $549 US.

I am ignorant in these matters.

Kirrio also have a T2 bundle at E779 and bundles of software & GPS unit with/without Bluetooth. Have a look at http://www.kirrio.com/uk/products/index.php

Navman and TomTom also have GPS solutions for Palm; the latter recently announced an all in one unit based on Palm OS.

Importing from the US sounds great but you have to pay import duty (rate differs by product) and sales tax (17% in the UK, higher in some other countries). The BBC recently ran an article on how travellers returning from shopping trips in the US are being caught by Customs. If the goods are sent by mail with an incorrect customs declaration (eg Gift

.... [my post got abbreviated] value <$50) then you may get away without paying extra. Even downloaded software is subject to VAT (sales tax) - lots of US sites add it on if your credit card address is in Europe.

The US version does not have European maps included. For someone who travels alot between UK and France it is important for me that relevant maps be included particularly since TomTom has yet to update their CityMap software for OS5 (except T3 which you need to purchase a GPS with).

PIC out of touch with Zodiac.

dethblud @ 4/6/2004 12:22:45 PM #
I'm really disappointed by how far PIC is on Zodiac news. Daedalus 3D is available and working for the Zodiac now. I downloaded and tried it this morning.

My suggestion is that the PIC news guys take a stop by tapland.com daily to make sure their news is up to date when it comes to the Zodiac.

RE: PIC out of touch with Zodiac.
Admin @ 4/6/2004 12:34:28 PM #
The news on Daedalus was provided to me from them, I did not get the update before publishing the article. I have now updated the article to reflect that.

USB connectivity on the Tungsten E?

DJS_TX @ 4/6/2004 1:35:29 PM #
Now wait just a gosh durn minute, I thought the Tungsten E was a slave only device? Does this mean that the GPS is actually a USB master device? If so that is kind of interesting.

It could well be.

Their site says it uses a Sirf Star II chiset.
Sirf says it contains:

-Integrated ARM CPU and on-chip memory
-Significant throughput for user applications
-Extensive peripheral support

I hav e such a unit. It comes in Germany including mapsonic Navigationsoftware for Germany Austria and Switzerland.
Pries in Germany 340 Euros plus 16 % Vat
THis is the best navigationbundle which you can get for your maney at this time - just half of the price o an European Garmin 3600.

THe only missing: Globalsat (which delivers the GPS mouse for this unit) has not enabelt WAAS/EGNOS Sisgnal.
