Non-replaceable battery, maps getting out of date

The package includes navigation software for Palm 5 PDAs and the Microsoft PocketPC PDAs but you should check which models are supported. I run the Palm version on my Treo650 smartphone. I have to travel around the UK a fair bit for work and also like to tour round the UK and Europe for pleasure...

Easy to setup and use, Clear maps, Works great!

Some minor bugs, Costly to keep maps up to date

TomTom Navigator brings the market leading SatNav software and functionality to a PDA. Plan your routes with your preferences (avoid toll roads, fastest, etc). The software is very easy to install - just run the CD on your computer and it copies the files to your PDA - easy! This does take a long...

Cross-platform compatability

Comparative cost, maps not up to date

--INTRODUCTION-- TOM TOM has been a strong contender in the GPS / SATNAV market for a long time now. Before they branched out into the standalone-unit market, they were involved with churning out software and GPS receivers that could deliver what they wanted. This is my second TOM TOM product...

Tom Tom is probably the market leader in terms of satellite navigation, and putting the software on a mobile phone or PDA seems the logical solution - after all, who wants to have their windscreen/dashboard cluttered with several electronic devices? Navigator 5 is not the newest version, but it...

Maps Not totally up to date.

I purchased TOMtom Navigator 5 in a package with a Palm Tungsten T5, described separately. This package is one of the most up to date and easy to use of all the navigation systems i have tried. With a compatible bluetooth PDA it works well and i am sure with a dedicated bit of hardware works even...

Introduction: I've used a few stand-alone GPS units over the last few years, but decided that I'd like to delve in to satellite navigation. I already had a PDA with bluetooth so after some research I decided that Tomtom Navigator would be my cheapest option. Tomtom are well known for their...

Clear Mapping, Clear intructions, Good Maps

Maps can get out of date quite quickly

Before you buy this software, you will need to choose a good PDA to put it on, the better the PDA, the better the software runs, i.e. the better PDA's have larger screen resolutions (640x480), faster processors so the moving map is smother etc. For this review I used a Fujitsu-Siemens PocketLoox...
