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 should have believed the other poor reviews that the IPAQ 310 has gotten ,but I have been a loyal HP user for years and thought I would give it the benifit of the doubt,But I was wrong.Out of the box this was a very cool unit and seemed to work ok.but it all went south as soon as I installed the...
Summary: This unit has several flaws such as: 1) The raised on/off button is easily activated either when in teh carry case or your pocket. The battery will die on you. 2) The battery life is terrible. Basically there is no need for a battery as it needs to be permanently plugged in or will die on you.
Too difficult to use. After download the system would not reboot. Too many options/features for a mapping product.

Summary: Too difficult to use. If I wanted a video, music, and phone system I would purchase them seperate. Need to carry around a manual or provide training for the "not so called gadgit oriented person". Satilite pick up was great when the product worked. After download it would not work.
Summary: At first look the specs look impressive, but when I actually tried the unit I saw it was only half baked. The audio is worthless. Low volume and muffled. You can not hear a thing ! Very disappointing ! Routing is inaccurate and slow.
Summary: Not a good product anymore. Never could keep up to location and was always two or three minutes behind trying to locate. Missed a lot of turns using this HP product and I used to work for them.
Summary: Just got the GPS, used it for 3 days...and now, just can't wait to return this piece of junk. It froze up twice, slow and bad route calculation, the worst text to speech voice ever, not only that you can't hear it, you can't even understand what its trying to say!
Summary: It was easy to use, but it seemed like it had some problems in positioning where I was when it was cold. It also had problems with speech. It sounds like it would not finish what it was saying. The routing was very weird. It would take me around places no matter what settings I choose.
