Summary: The Navman PDA came in well packaged and operated. I upgraded it with a better battery, and it works well. I have had Navman PDA's for many years, and use it as a idea storage device till I can use it with the computer.
Summary: You have to input your address search twice to get this unit to make it work; there have been a few times it will not find the address that you may be looking for in its database. If you try to run both the navigation software and all the other database software it seems to slow down its processing...
Conclusion: Navman have included some nice new features here in their V2 software, and have a very attractive looking Pocket PC with integrated antenna but there are problems due to the TeleAtlas database in searching for roads and it may take longer than normal to find the destination you require.
Summary: Horrible software - very hard to enter addresses. Lets say you're looking for restaurants, you'll need to enter a 'Area'. So you enter a city - it will bring up several options with the same city name. You don't know which to choose. It cannot serach for POIs based on the current location.
GPS and software are fine; Windows and the PC platform useless

Summary: I got this as a gift in Christmas of 04. All the other things you have read are basically true: good value, lots of accessories included, everything you need is in the box, except a decent sized memory card. I was very impressed for the first couple of weeks of use.
Summary: I have a Navman Pin 100 and the latest software SmartST 2005 and it still sucks as a GPS unit. The new software offers very little if any improvement over the old. The Tech support is poor also, they know the problems but can't offer any real solutions for you.
Definately hasn't gotten the acclaim it deserves..

Summary: I've been using my PiN 100 for almost 2 years now and on an almost daily basis. I drive all over the state of Oregon and Washington for my job. I have to make multiple stops daily and to almost always never the same place twice. The PiN has done an excellent job at getting me from point A to B.
Summary: I purchased this item as an affordable GPS, yet it offers so much more. I've checked out other GPS systems, and this preforms as well as higher end GPS only systems. A previous review commented on the couple minute delay to connect, but this is common with all GPS as they connect with 3-4 satellites...
How could anyone give this thing more than 2 stars??

Summary: Yes, free mp3 player... You can get it along with tonns of free soft on internet... Exciting... Fun started from setting up desktop soft and applying patch. But it is nothing comparing to fun of day to day use.
Summary: WARNING - The US version ships with a 32M card not the 128M card cited in the Australian review posted here. A hastily added sticker on the box says a 128M card is "recommended" In fact, unless you live in a rural area, you can't load the map for your home area until you buy an additional card.
