"not hard enough for me"

i have used the acer n35 hand held computor for over 12months.

the destinator software is satisfactory and does get you from a to b without any fuss but is not as good or as durable as some of the other navigation software titles. the destinator maps can be viewed in 2d, 3d or birds eye view, i found the 3d view to be the best as you will see where your going much clearer but to get the street names to come up on screen you will need to see the 2d view. compared to the tom tom software the views do compare favourably however the points of interests are included but creating your own or editing existing poi's is complicated but not impossible. you do get options of navigating to addresses, street names, postcodes or poi's with the addition of navigating to street junctions. it does compare well to the tom tom system but not as easy to use or adapt. you do not have extra voices to buy either however you can add your own voices in .wav format but it is complicated and you need to be a computor wiz to be able to do it as some re-programming is needed.
on the whole hand held computor does look good and does perform well but as it works on the older windows mobile 2003 operating system it is not up to date, you can download a good selection of software titles to use but you will find it very difficult because of the limited amount of onboard memory of 64 mb and the slow processor speed 266mhz to upgrade to windows mobile 5. the screen resolution again is average at 240 X 320 although most graphics are decent but you do get some fuzziness with some of the fonts when reading.
i did find the handheld to be very weak in construction.
after using an external gps antenna a couple of times i found the ext socket had broken inside, also the power connection socket on the bottom of the unit broke very easily.
if you want a good hand held with gps software i would certainly look for one of the other brands, i have found the mio p350 to be far superior at around the same price which does boast the latest uk maps with tom tom 5 navigation software. see my review of the p350 for more info.

    Yeah, this reads easier and helps more with what I would look for. You should check out some reviews by other people on similar products - I'm not saying copy their style, but it might help. It gives you a rough idea of what to write - even the best writers sometimes look at something and think "I wouldn't have thought of that!". Just an idea

    Sounds a bit rubbish really! Rich

    Hmmmm, this has several good points in it, but theres still some vital information missing. What view is the map, for example? What exactly is its memory capacity? How big and heavy is it? Let me know if you edit, and I will happliy some and rerate it for ya :-)
