Conclusion: The HP iPAQ 310 Travel Companion is the first GPS device to use a speedy dual-core processor. When it's coupled with a high-resolution widescreen display, the results are pretty impressive.
Pros: Powerful dual-core Titan processor. High-resolution widescreen display. Forty-channel GPS receiver. Excellent 3D rendering. Buildings rendered in 3D in 40 U.S. cities. Multisegment routing.
Cons: Power connects to device directly, not via mounting bracket. Text on the bottom of the screen is a bit small.
Conclusion: We had a lot of problems testing the 310 Travel Companion; more problems than we’ve had with any other device in recent memory. This product feels half-baked, is not user friendly, and is frustrating to use, to say the least. We constantly felt like we were fighting the device, rather than having it actually make our lives easier. We do not recommend this product, obviously.

Pros: Wonderful screen; lots of features
Cons: Navigation is non-intuitive; instructions are lacking; loading media onto the device is a hassle
