A pocket-size substitute for a laptop when traveling by car
5 April 2013
Summary: Bought the item to have a handy reference tool for documents, places and access to internet while traveling as well as a guide to unfamiliar destinations. I especially like the GPS feature. The only thing I don't like is that it did not come with a User's Manual and I cannot find it on the net.
Summary: Fantastic small format Pocket PC. I needed a new P-PC because the software developers had left my old one in the dust, and it was becoming erratic with frequent resets.

Summary: Tan pronto como comencé a utilizar el Asus Mypal A696 comprendí que es tan sencillo de utilizar que cualquier persona lo maneja sencillamente aunque he de reconocer que aparentemente no parece ser un sistema de navegación conocido para las masas, pero sí lo puede ser.
Summary: Das Gerät ansich ist ja ganz gut, was eben ein PPC so alles kann, macht er locker. Ich musste allerdings das Gerät nach 8 Monaten zu ASUS einschicken (das Gerät ging sporadisch an und aus, sehr schlecht bei der Navigation durch eine unbekannte Innenstadt)und da fingen die Probleme mit dem Service...
