Welcome to the forum, please dont post multiple requests of the same question througout the forum, it tends to fragment answers.

What do you want the device to do, on road navigation, off road, Walking etc as these can have a bearing on the receiver although any SiRF-III or modern MTK unit be more than adequate for these roles.

Do you have any maping software to use the device with? - Mike

Hi there, I'm also new to this and a little wiser after dipping my toes in the water...
I thought that a GPS and a Satnav were one and the same, I have an Ipaq 214 and was considering getting a receiver and TomTom software for it (I believe the compatible one is Navigator 6).
I then considered that I wouldn't mind using the GPS on my motorbike or indeed doing a bit of Geocaching, so I bought a Colorado 300. Now I don't mind the small screen, and I haven't got the City Navigator maps for it, just the pre-loaded map it comes with , but I couldn't find a way of entering an address or postcode on it.
Is it that GPS and Satnav are two different animals? Or perhaps, when I got the city street maps, a system would appear for me to enter destination details-I haven't found out yet perhaps you guys could help.
Also, i would like to know the viability of using the Ipaq214 with a receiver and the TomTom software, it would appear reading here that people are having compatibility issues. To start with, HP themselves admitted that if I load the software and the screen goes dark, then I need a hard reset on the PDA-not a good start!
So the questions are: Colorado- work with street maps inputting postcode/address? Ipaq suitability with receivers, and which one?
I'm going abroad this year three times and will need to find different unknown locations, but in the UK, I wouldn't need a Satnav much at all.
Thaking you all in anticipation.

Beware! the sound volume on the 214 is very low. Some say too low for in car satnav. It's a known problem and much discussed.

BTW I use a qstarz bluetooth Q818 gps with my Ipaq 214. Works great and so do others I've tried. I use MemoryMap for walking. The 214 has been out today in some foul wet weather, all safe in an Aquapac.

Thanks for your reply Roger, the Colorado went back and am now considering Copilot 7 Live & with the 818x receiver, though it would have been nice to find out if the colorado had input methods for postcode, but I suppose I won't find out now.
With regards to low volume, this I don't see as an issue as I have a 3.5mm jack plug going into Aux on my van's stereo, so can amplify voice commands, and on the bike, 214 will reside in jacket pocket and earpiece under helmet, so I won't need to look at maps, but I take your point.
When I use this abroad this year, the wife can repeat the commands- who knows where we'll be there!
