Home > Software - PDA > TomTom

Overview
As you may or may not know, I'm a bit of a technology nut.  Several years ago I bought a car that features a GPS navigation system.  I am now spoiled and will never get by without one.  It is very handy being able to enter an address and have the software calculate a route and take me to my destination.  Being the owner of several Pocket PCs and GPS units I tried to find software that would give me the same easy-to-use interface that my car offers.  I tried many software programs but never found one that I liked - until now.  I am extremely impressed with the TomTom Navigator software.  It is easy to use and features large buttons on the touchscreen that are easy to use while driving (keep in mind that you should focus on driving and play with the PDA while stationary).  Running on my iPAQ hx4705 Pocket PC it is a more powerful and impressive system than the one in my car.  If you already own a Pocket PC the low price of this software and GPS units makes it easy to setup a powerful street navigation system in your car.
Note: You will want to buy a large (1 to 2 GB) SD memory card on which to store the maps.

Recommended Accessories

  • Transplant CF GPS, Fits into any Pocket PC that has a CF card slot on top, Or EMTAC BlueTooth GPS
  • Transplant GPA-18 External Antenna, This is highly recommended because it allows the antenna to be positioned near the front of the car windshield (not necessary for use in a glider)
  • RAM-B-SCMK, Suction cup mount kit or RAM-A-101 mounting arm, I use a RAM-A-101-L arm and double-sided tape to mount a RAM-HOL-PD2 cradle in my car.  Every car is different of course.
  • Cradle - See the Cradle Selection Guide
  • SD or CF Memory Card - I was able to install all the maps for the entire USA on a single 2 GB SD card (using a little more than 1/2 the memory).  You can use much smaller cards for smaller regions.

Reviews

  • Paul Remde - Soaring Pilot
    Every bit as easy to use an powerful as the navigation system in my Acura.  I like the 3D navigation view and the large buttons that make it easy to use while on the road.  The new version 6 finally offers the ability to enter latitude and longitude coordinates and navigate to that location, such as the location of an off-airport landing (version 5 did not offer that feature).
