A pocket-size substitute for a laptop when traveling by car

ed7681, Ebay
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. I'm enjoying it more than the Dell Axim I had some years ago that did not have GPS.

Excellent non-phone PDA

fjindra, Ebay
26 August 2008
  • 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. I initially had similar "erratic frequent reset" problems with the A696, but after downloading/upgrading the firmware and OS, those resets became a memory. I like the cleaner/clearer screen.

Great little gadget

influent1, Ebay
20 July 2008
  • Summary: I would call this device a jack of all trades but a master of none. The GPS works well, though it'd be better if I could control it with my voice so I could pay attention to the road. The touch screen works great and has good detail, making it good for watching movies. It plays mp3's fairly well, though without preamp control it can be a little quiet through headphones. Being able to sync it with Outlook was really nice. And it comes with a couple fun games!

ASUS MyPal A696 A True Pal To Guide You Around !

t.ain, Ebay
1 April 2008
  • Summary: Well for ASUS fanatics like I am, will find the A696 a decent PPC+GPS with an excellent processor,good GPS(Sirf+NMEA protocol),enough memory but not so bright screen. The point that this gadget is great, is its quality, very well made with strong speakers and without the annoying GPS antenna. So I strongly suggest it.

ASUS VS TOM-TOM??? Asus just swings past!

Mr.Freema..., Ciao
30 April 2008
  • Excerpt: "The Asus MyPal may not be a Navigational system known to the masses, but is still one that shouldn't only be glanced at. With a long battery life, dramatic colours and ease of use, the MyPal is a must have for those long journeys to unknown places. The MyPal has several inept features to give the user more freedom and accessibility. These include a toolbar that shows a Postcode search and Town search, as well as downloadable voices for your own entertainment. ...
  • Pros: Great look, small size and easy navigation
  • Cons: Can reach up to £200

Es un excelente GPS con funciones de PDA

carlomagnohight, Ciao
10 March 2013
  • 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. Realmente satisfacer las expectativas de cualquier usuario en su uso personal como guía en los viajes.
  • Pros: un excelente GPS con funciones de PDA
  • Cons: ninguna

Gerät gut

Peter Schulz, Amazon
27 June 2010
  • 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 an. Nach einigem Hin und Her habe ich ein komplett neues Gerät bekommen und das ist absolut zuverlässig.

Hardware maximal OK, GPS nur für Erfahrene, Programmempfehlungen!

Dr. Peter Wiesinger "Wiesinger", Amazon
7 September 2009
  • Summary: Ich habe meinen ASUS MyPal 696 seit etwa einem halben Jahr, und die Grundfunktionen sind stabil. Als Navigationssystem nutze ich Navigon MN7 und Ozi für die topographischen Karten. Aus unerfindlichen Gründen hat sich die Grundeinstellung so verändert, dass Navigation ausschließlich nach einem soft-reset möglich war, aber auch dann nur, wenn man die externe Stromversorgung nicht an- oder absteckte. Es hat mich wirklich genervt. Auch ein Hard-Reset war erfolglos.
