Awesome machine, Terrible software

 

I performed all the updates as of 2008, Feb 19th. Battery - after bringing the GPS home fully recharged from the car, and after three days when I tried to drive without the adaptor, the battery was totally drained. On full charge, it lasts about 2...

Superb screen resolution, DualCore, 128MB RAM

Text-to-speach(TTS) is useless, Short battery life, TimeZone not setting properly, Mediocore GPS signal performance

Great device, other reviewers should READ THE MANUAL

 

Large 480 resolution 4.3" screen. Route calculations are lightning fast, reroutes are even faster! This unit gets almost 4 hours on a full charge, but I almost always leave it plugged in with the supplied car charger. Hp has a dedicated website for...

The unit will lock up a time or two in the first day of use. However, I haven't had any lockups since. HP's sales support is worthless

Very Sharp Screen, Great Buy

 

grat buy, it's almost 100 dollars cheaper than buying retail or hp direct. and expect some freeze screen since it's Win CE based.

Great price form NewEgg, very fast shipping. The 4.3" wide screen is awesome with "hi-def" resolution. Software design is easy to use

this iPAQ 310 locked up and freezed while i am inputing the addresses to favourites. the device experienced a "Fatal Error" and needed to reset it.I hope it won't lock up again, you know how good the New Egg return policy are

It does do text to speech

 

You have to select a different voice to get text-to-speech and then it will speak the street names. Also, HP just added a new upgrade on their web site to update the system. They even put out a new user manual. When it was initially released it was...

Crystal clear display ; 3D buildings ; 12 million POIs ; search POIs by name (TOMTOM 6 doesn't) ; Can be hacked to run other software (including IGO 2006 and TOMTOM 5 or 6.00)

None

HP GPS

 

Price should be lowered. HP still new to GPS field.

Screen resolution, guidance voice is crispy clear, home charger, car charger come with it, preloaded games

NO text-to-speech as advertised(it does not say street name, the reason I bought it), short battery life, blue tooth sound is not clear as GPS guidance voice, some out of date street name, a lot of touch-touch just to cancel a route you're on
