I own a Magellan GPS 320 handheld GPS receiver. I also have recently purchased a HP Ipaq 5550. Can connect the two together so that I can retrieve live data from the Magellan GPS 320 on my Ipaq? I would like to use the data from the GPS along with a maping/directions program on my Pocket PC. Is this possible? If so, what cables do I need? I already have the PC Data Cable w/Cigarette Lighter Adapter for the GPS 300 Series + plus the cables provided with the Ipaq 5550. What navigation software do you reccomend for this purpose?

Thanks
Martin

Yes you can, all you need is a 2-part cable, a GMQ38 from http://www.pc-mobile.net/maggps.htm

You then set the Magellan to export NMEA 4800 and setup the iPAQ to listen on COM1 with NMEA 4800 and you'll receive the data stream, and can use any program on the Pocket PC with the Magellan.

Navigation software ise, it depends what you want. Street Routing, or TopoGraphical ?
