Garmin iQue M4 & iQue 3000 GPS PDAs

 

Garmin, a company well known for its dedicated GPS system as well as PDA-based devices, has recently added two new combo units to their line: the iQue M4, a Windows Mobile-based device, and the iQue 3000, which runs the Palm OS. Both are solid PDAs,...

I have been using this for a week now and I am more-or-less satisfied with this. This is a handy tool to keep track of all my meetings, notes etc and GPS works fine so long as you start it well in advance before hitting the road - it takes a while to...

Product Specifications

The iQue M4 is Garmin's first iQue to come pre-loaded with City Navigator North America NT covering the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. There's no need for downloads from your PC. The iQue M4 uses Garmin's familiar StreetPilot interface that greets users with two recognizable options: "Where to? " and "View map". It also includes the same features found in Garmin's other high-end street navigators including intuitive navigation with automatic route calculation; voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions; 2D or 3D map view; and automatic rerouting if a motorist strays off course. With the iQue M4's larger navigational icons, users can select icons with their finger rather than a stylus. After using the touchscreen to enter information about the destination - such as the name or street address - the driver will be given detailed, turn-by-turn, voice-prompted directions. Destinations may also be selected through the points of interest (POIs) database, which includes nearly six million POIs such as restaurants, fuel, banks, and hotels. This street-smart navigator can remind you of an appointment, show the location on the Map Page, and route you right to the front door. With its POI Loader software, Garmin has also made it possible for customers to augment pre-loaded maps with custom POIs such as school zones and safety cameras. The built-in Windows Media Player lets users browse music by artist, album, song, and genre. MP3s can be loaded onto an SD card or internal memory for music on the go. The iQue M4 boasts a new SiRF high-sensitivity receiver for improved GPS performance, 64 megabytes of RAM, and SD/SDIO expansion slot for memory, wireless networking, and more. The iQue M4 also features Microsoft's Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition operating system, which includes Pocket Office applications and supports portrait/landscape screen orientation for easy viewing of multimedia content.
