Right I have made some decent decision I think with regards to hardware buying but I want to check with other people if they think the combo is good and if anyone has something close how good it is:

O2 XDA
Holux GPSLim 236
Jabra BT250v Bluetooth Headset

I wanted a PDA but I also liked the idea of having it as a phone too.

People's thoughts??

Was then thinking of loading on of the tomtom sat nav programs.

PS Has the XDA got wireless network capabilities?

It all depends upon which model of XDA you have chosen as this is a generic name applied to the devices by O2 - the later units XDAIIi, XDAIIs and the XDA Exec have both wifi and bluetooth (these units are manufactured by a little known Taiwanese company called HTC) - a couple of things to watch for though)
1. Quite a number of people report problems related to the speed of the SD card when using TomTom on the XDAIIi (Tanscend 80x is reported to work well)
2. On the XDAIIs you need TomTom vs5,1 or above otherwise the on screen keyboard will not show up for postcodes etc.
3. On the XDA Exec you need TomTom vs 5,21 in order to load the software as the device is using WM2005 as the opperating system.
4. When you first switch the device on and it loads up the operating system at the end select the corporate install mode, enter the code 0506, this prevents the installer from loading additional (O2 Active interface) rubish that turns the unit into a useless device.
As for the rest of your list
The GPS unit is a cracker, very impresive device.
I have never tried a Jabra so I will leave that for others to comment - Mike
