Excerpt: This unit is rather old now, although still available second hand. I would however be rather wary, as in my experience it was plagued with problems. On the positive side the intergrated GPS works well, and makes an ideal sat nav PDA combo. The Destinator Lite software that came with the unit whilst being functional was rather as the name suggests light in the features department. When I got my unit it was only £99+VAT, so was a bit of a bargain I thought.
Excerpt: REASON FOR PURCHASE ******************************* I have for a long time been considering investing in a satnav unit, but had been constantly put off by the price. However, in February whilst trawling Ebay I came across the Acer N35 advertised as a PDA / Satnav combined. The concept of a combined unit appealed somewhat as I could also use the device as a pocket diary. PRICE ********* The recommended price for these is around the £200 mark.
Excerpt: Well! I searched for a Sat Nav hoping to find something under £150 and was shocked to find this at £100. Really cheap price and seemed to come with a lot. I read that the Sat Nav included 'Points of Interest' such as hotels, restaurants and petrol stations and thought this was a great price to include all these features as well as the Microsoft Office package on the PDA.
Excerpt: i have used the acer n35 hand held computor for over 12months. the destinator software is satisfactory and does get you from a to b without any fuss but is not as good or as durable as some of the other navigation software titles. the destinator maps can be viewed in 2d, 3d or birds eye view, i found the 3d view to be the best as you will see where your going much clearer but to get the street names to come up on screen you will need to see the 2d view.
Excerpt: I bought this product in Spain. This new PDA has all the benefits of a high quality handheld; although the price is a little expensive. If you plan to buy a PDA, and do not desire to buy the more expensive ACER N50 PREMIUM, this is your product. The manual is very easy to read; all the explanations are sought to be understandable by every user, even the novice ones. Although, the battery does not last longer than you think.
Excerpt: Well, i bought this since i needed it for my job (i'm pretty useless at directions), got it off of eBay for a tad under £170, this was about 3 months ago. The first thing i noticed when picking it up was that it was very light, although it still felt very robust and capable of dealing with what is required! Did as per the instructions and charged it up fully. This is my first niggle.
Pros: Looks nice, good value for money !
Cons: Sometimes crashes for no reason, a bit slow to react .
Excerpt: ACER N35 GPS HANDHELD POCKET CHAUFFEUR My darling hubby bought me this about a month ago now, he was concerned as I have to travel around the West Midlands to different Spiritualist Churches, worried that I might loose my way when I travelled on my own, so he bought me a sat. nav. I'm afraid I am not a techno buff, so this will be my experience of using the Satellite Navigation System not the technical side.
Pros: directs you to your destination smoothly, great if you are on your own, no more trying to map read and drive, makes your journey safer
Cons: sometimes gets the speed limit wrong, severe weather can make it slow by interferring with the satallite reception .
Excerpt: I bought this unit from Amazon for £249.99 including Destinator Software, because I did not want any wires cluttering the car. The craddle can be placed on the windscreen or dashboard at a convenient place for you. So long as the antena is not obsturcted you will get a clear signal every time.
Pros: Light Weight Compact unit with no wires
Cons: Need Microsoft Outlook to syncronise data (ie calender, contacts etc)
Excerpt: I just wanted to own a GPS for a long time, and recently I could get this PDA with integrated GPS at last. First of all, I'd like to share with you why did I chose this one, among all the choices available. What's a GPS? GPS means Global Positioning System. A GPS receiver is a piece of hardware capable of calculate the position using the signals received from at least three satellites of the GPS network.
