I would like to connect my Garmin Vista to my IPAQ 1910. I have not seen any cables available. Does anyone know if they are available?

Unfortunately you won't be able to. The 1910 does not offer a serial port, so there is no way of connecting any GPS Receiver, and also because the 1910 only supports SD and not SDIO (SD Input/Output) then there's also no way of adding a GPS Receiver through this socket.



The new 1940's have Bluetooth enabled, so adding a BT GPS will be easy, HP took a harsh line when releasing the 1910, they wanted a cheap Pocket PC that they could sell to people who wouldn't pay 500 and upwards for a PDA, the drawback is that they've severely cut down what the 1910 will do!



Sorry!

The 1910 feels a little like a dead end product - no Pocket PC 2003 upgrade is going to be produced either.



HP came up with a much more balanced product in the 1940. Still, the 1910 does all it was advertised to - and many users seem delighted with it. It just isn't expandable and upgradable.
