"Acer N30 GPS Bundle"

Acer N30 PDA GPS bundle N30 PDA GPS bundle. This review is about the GPS although I will talk about the PDA see my other review for PDA. If you haven't heard of it GPS it is a satellite navigation system, which means that you can connect it to the PDA this is a hand held computer device, which then becomes a system that can direct you to anywhere you want to go. It is easily connected using, bluetooth technology connectivity. This device will talk to you telling you when to turn and directing you via an on screen picture visual on the PDA screen. All you do is insert the destination and you're away. It will give you the quickest directions, which will save you time energy and fuel.


The software used with the N30 PDA
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
N30 Samsung Processor at 266 MHZ, 64MB SDRAM, 32MB NAND Flash Memory, SD(SDIO)/MMC slot, Bluetooth, 3.5'' transflective TFT, Microsoft Windows Pocket PC 2003 Premium, BT GPS Receiver, 256MB SD Card, Destinator 3 software

The GPS is very good the maps are very easy to see and the voice is clear also and at £269 it is a bargain a hand held PC and a satellite navigation would usually cost on average £400, so you will save your self a lot of money, the only down side is that if the PDA is damaged you wont be able to use the GPS, but that's the price you will have to pay for this bargain!!!

The new Acer N30 is very nice looking and compact, it has Microsoft windows and a processor. I.e. operating system Microsoft® Windows Mobile™ 2003 software for Pocket PC Premium Edition with Outlook® 2002

  • trevorbrock published 28/08/2005
    Oh, by the way, I was surprised that you did not use your Acer N50 for this purpose,as it has better specs than the Acer N30 - No I am not a detective, you don't have to be to spot strange reviews
  • trevorbrock published 27/08/2005
    I think you may have loaded up the review on the pda rather than the GPS ! And the PDA info is all just tech specs rather than how you have found the system in use - Trevor
