After much deliberation, I have settled on using TomTom N3 with an ipaq 4150.

My problem is deciding between the BT receiver. Fortuna (BT clip-on) looks good, as does the Haicom (CF 303E / 303mmf with BT slipper), if a little cumbersome. However the Hiacom seems to be more expensive.

Does anyone have any experience of using both / either of these products. If so which would you recommend?

Thanks

Brad

ONly clipon (CO) exp here. It is very good. I use the 2215 and CO. The CO gives me very quick fix when cold, about 15 seconds. When warm, it almost instant. The 8.5 hours of batery is also nice. There is a good chance the CO will have Xtrack V2 available for download also. CO is small and comes with a belt clip for walking. In the XT mode I get a 5 satellite fix in my house away from windows. In ST today I was getting a 10 satellites in view, tracking 10 satellites and using 9 for calculations with the WAAS signal also being recieved. I consistanly get 12-14 feet accruacy without WAAS. I have found no issues or flaws with it.

I've got a Haicom HI-303MMF, and no Bluetooth slipper. Frankly, if you're wanting a Bluetooth GPS, the Clip On is a better buy. It's probably cheaper than all the Haicom kit, and it has the bonus of being switchable to Xtrac mode.
