I've ordered an Ipaq 2210. I'll get GPS navigation for it, I decided that I should get a Bluetooth (Navman 4400 or TomTom). I've looked at some CF GPS and it definitely cheaper, but is it "better"? It's almost more portable than a Bluetooth, since you don't need any cables for charging.



So...the question is: should I get a Bluetooth or a CF GPS?

The question you should be asking is what do I want to use it for?



If for outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, horse riding canoeing, or any other activity that does not provide a convenient power supply then I would say Bluetooth as this uses lees power on the PDA.



If it is for incar activities, or maybe a motor bike where you have access to power then the choice is yours.



Dont rule out the Emtac or GlobalSat Bluetooth GPS units as these are not packaged with software, giving you a potential greater choice of configurations.

How much power does the CF GPS need? How long can you use the Ipaq with a CF GPS without charing it?
