All in all, a great product


I've been using this model since summer of 2003 when I took a car trip to Austria. It responded very well and the journey was a breeze without the need for an atlas. Since then, I've taken it with me to trips, holidays etc, within UK. The only glitch...

Detailed and accurate maps, gps receiver very responsive

Loading maps onto memory cards could take long

Consumer review by:

A portable GPS that works well


Detailed graphics, ease of use. Came with car power adapter, and suction windshield mount

Drains battery if not plugged into car adapter. Then again, what doesnt drain the battery


Consumer review by:

maps are not that good.


shows location that you are on

hard to enter destination location. Very difficult to do a search. Route algorythm stinks. I don't use it. Prefer yahoo maps

Confusing docs, software oddities, missing parts



The docs for the 3450 are confusing. The box says iPaq 36xx and PocketPC 2000 (aka Windows CE 3.0). The internal paperwork says iPaq 37xx and above, PocketPC 2002 minimum. Application itself is odd. Click on "Exit Application" does not shut the app
