Summary: I have extensively used Garmin, Tom Tom, Magellen and Mio before buying this product. The Mio stood out of all, partly due to iGo6 used for UI and mapping. I had been a big fan ever since I bought it.
Summary: I wavered back and forth between this and the Garmin Nuvi 255w and eventually settled on this because it was different and had a number of great features. However, after using it on a 2000 mile trip around the southwest I decided this is a product still in the works.
Summary: I bought it for 199 and got an extra 30 off, but even then the system and maps included and upgradable in US through the HP site is old technology. The dual core 600 seems misleading- looking further I see 570MHz total and have seen it at 285 (only one core firing up)..
Summary: I bought this device a year ago but I am writing a review now. I had problems from the start with the HP 310 GPS. It would always freeze up so I returned it than the last one would no longer charge. This was all in about a months time. I now have a different device. Pros= nice screen.
Summary: I'll keep this review short. I use high end Magellan and Garmin models on a daily basis in my work. Both systems are adequate and both have their flaws. After alot of use Magellans tend to freeze up alot and have some areas where their maps are a bit inaccurate.
GPS not for everyone, but great GPS if you master it.

Summary: I've used the HP iPAQ 310 over two weeks. I bought it because I wanted a GPS with bluetooth in order to sync with my cingular 8525. The sync worked in seconds and I was able to talk and receive calls at anytime with excellent sound (of course I had to lower the volume of my car) If you are looking...
Summary: Actually a 3 1/2 out of 5 star rating Pro's: lots; cool 3d views, lots o POI's, sharp screen, pairs up effortlessly with my Nextel i880, have used in PA, N.J., N.Y., L.I., Bronx, Queens, Manhattan, Denver, S.F., San Jose, Sacramento, got me where I needed to go.
Summary: HP has packed many great features in a powerful and compact unit. The high-resolution screen shows incredible map detail. In addition, with 12 million points of interest, you can look up virtually any destination. This makes it a very useful reference tool as well.
Summary: This unit is the best I've played with it other than Garmin, Tom and Mio I had used before. Some people complain about the volume and route calculation. But if they ever had some exploration into pocket PC, they would realize how easily those problems could be resolved.
Summary: I have had no problems at all with the 310. The 3D display is incredible, the directions perfect. The TTS is a little low. When using this with my phone via bluetooth, the sound is low and can be tough to hear in a vehicle that does not muffle the outside noise, My kids were able to watch a movie on...
