The Garmin iQue Series
The Garmin iQue GPS units based on Microsoft PocketPC handheld PDAs were an ideal combination of a PDA, and a GPS navigation units. These handheld GPS navigators have been in the market for quite sometime, and come with a large screen.
Despite the large screen size, they aren’t that bulky; you can carry them in your pocket with great ease. They have a rechargeable battery, and the GPS maps can be loaded on external SD MMC units.
The Garmin iQue series navigators have intuitive menus and a large database of Points of Interest. What’s more, they can be integrated with your calendar and PDA address book as well.
You can enjoy voice directions with an integrated speaker, and also various dashboard mounts with DC power. Its map sets are updated every odd year, but the bad part of the story is that they cost you about $80 per update (ouch!).
The early 3200 models were a little crude, but they never had any complaints. The latest generation Garmin iQue series navigation units make up an ideal choice as a handheld GPS device, except the fact that they don’t have support for Apple Macintosh users!
However, they’ve been currently discontinued from the current lineup of Garmin – in case you’re looking for a cheap used handheld GPS navigator, they’re still worth your money.
