Garmin Mobile 10 clip-on GPS device


Global Positioning System add-ons for smart phones and PDAs are nothing new. But a GPS clip-on? That's what the super-tiny Garmin Mobile 10 claims to be.

If you travel frequently, often need directions, are on a budget, and already carry a Treo or other Bluetooth-enabled device, the Garmin Mobile 10 is an ideal GPS option. It's small, inexpensive, and works well for the most part. But don't expect...

Ultimate utility


I'm a huge fan of the 10X for my Treo 700W because it adds so much more usability to my phone. The app syncs up with my contact list, which syncs up with my Outlook contacts, which means that if I have a contacts address loaded, then I can select the...

Powerful Garmin route correction, Peer Points is a great way to coordinate on the go, No monthly fee associated this biz model ( as with TeleNav)

Treo screen is a kinda small and you lose the abiity to view while you're on a call

An affordable, powerful and flexible GPS solution


I wanted to get a GPS receiver for my Cingular 8525, but was put off by AT&T's Telenav features. Not only did you have to buy the receiver, you also had to buy a subcription service on top of AT&T's already overpriced data plans. The Garmin Mobile 10...

Road Warriors Rejoice!


I am an Outside sales rep who regularly puts on about 70k to 80k miles a year. I wanted a GPS that could mate up with my Samsung i730 Smartphone. I looked at dozens of options and came down to two. They were:

Size, Battery Life, Detail of Maps, User Interface

Instruction Manual Holes bigger than the Grand Canyon

A must for phones with Windows Mobile


I don't have any complaints about this product based on why I got it. I got this gps to connect to my Cingular 8525 phone and it works great. I'm running Vista Home Premium and there are some issues with nRoute. nRoute has to be run in admin mode, kind...

Bye Bye Bulky GPS Unit!


A few years ago I had purchased the Garmin iQue 3600 as a PDA and GPS Unit, and with the exception of the battery life, loved the unit. The problem was that it was bulky, required that it always be connected to a power source when it was using the GPS...

Small Receiver, Runs on Windows Mobile, Internet information available

One of the best gps for pdas, laptops, and smartphones at this price


Up to now, I have been using a Garmin GPS V which is a couple of years old and has outdated map data. Instead of buying the new map data, I decided to get the Garmin Mobile 10 deluxe for my Windows Mobile 5 PDA. So far the Mobile 10 has surpassed my...

Compatiility with palm and windows mobile, high sensitivity reciever, very portable, replaceable battery
