I'm about to own (EBAY) an HP iPAQ 6315 and am hoping to use it for both aviation and marine navigation as well as more normal capabilities. HP has a GPS receiver ($349) and I see that there are a whole lot of other BT options. So many, in fact, that I'm about as confused as I can get.
Anyone got some guidance for me in selecting a receiver and software to pull this off? Long range navigation in both the Atlantic and Pacific, by the way.

Do you need to recodr your travels? In that case a Data Logger receiver would come in handy (like a DeLorme BlueLogger). Otherwise you will want to go for longer battery runtime. The GlobalSat BT-338 has 15 hrs of runtime, and a state of the art SiRF III receiver.
Not an expert on aviation software - sorry. For marine stuff you probably need to use Maptech, or Oziexplorer for your own maps. _________________ Lutz

No real need to record trips. I'm a flight test and ferry pilot in airliners and do sailboat deliveries in the Pacific from time to time. No record problem with the aviation, and I keep written journals on the sailing passages.
