You might like it, if you are a geek

  • Summary: I bought mine directly from HP. I paid $180, and I think that's exactly what it is worth. No more and no less. Apparently HP decided to make the best GPS possible and then gave up for some reason. For example, the hardware is great. But there are those tiny, annoying things, like "power" button that WILL get accidentally pressed even if you keep the device in its carrying case. The software could be great... it it did not reboot every once in a while.

  • Summary: For the 1st GPS from HP it does a great job. It does crash some time as you can expect it from a Windows operating system. It looks very stylish and have a great picture quaility. Sound - I have attached a small speaker.

Great potential with a few issues

Juping Jin, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought a refurbished IPAQ 310 and used two weeks; then returned it. If you bought a new one, your experience may vary. The unit's appearance is attractive and in good quality, the screen is bright and big. When I purchased it, I had three expectations: 1. GPS, of course 2. Ebook reader. 3. Multimedia player The device has potential to fulfill all of them. As a portable media player, it plays avi, divx, mpeg and other type of files.

One major flaw

Nhat Nam Trinh, Amazon
12 August 2008
  • Summary: The device has a raised ON/OFF button. You can easily turn on and drain the battery by accident. The case is tight-fitting. If you put the device in the case, and then apply some pressure to the case, you can turn the power on. This is a major flaw to me, as I like to carry the device with me. I find myself turning on the power by accident too often.

Decent GPS AFTER 1.7GB Service Pack

D. Sun, Amazon
8 July 2008
  • Summary: I received this 310 device as a gift 4 months ago. The unit had multiple issues. Battery life was horrible. GPS signal detection was spotty. The directions and routes were off and made no sense. The largest problem was random freezes and locks. The learning curve was high for me and even now when I know how to use the device it is still cumbersome.

Too much too soon?

Thomas Duff "Duffbert", Amazon

  • Summary: When I got this unit via the Amazon Vine program, I was looking forward to it. I have an older Magellen GPS unit for my car, and it works great. The only problem is that it's rather bulky. The iPAQ 310 promised a much smaller and lighter form factor, as well as the ability to run with it away from a power source. Unfortunately, the promise didn't measure up to reality, and I think I'll be keeping my Magellen.

Lowcost Bluetooth - GPS with Quirky Interface HP iPAQ 310

Willdreisb, Amazon
11 May 2008
  • Summary: A low price with these features means a confusing unexplained GUI and the slowest web site for software upgrades and map updates I have ever encountered. The latest application upgrade is markedly better than the one on the unit when I bought it! Price is right and plays music & videos if you add extra memory.

Not bad, but not too bad.

  • Summary: I've had this for a month now. I had a chance to take it to New Orleans LA last week, and it could not find the air port (MSY). It said the desitination is in unreachable area, and it took me to middle of nowhere and deadend road. Maybe the airport was under water during Karina :) But it did pretty good job around Dallas metro area with accuracy. Maybe it is the map it uses, NAVITEQ I believe. And, it does have a few things to be improved; design and functionality wise.

Good product with a few shortcomings

Lev Tsuker, Amazon
25 February 2008
  • Summary: 1. Sound (voice) is too weak. A dinamic condition is weakening sound only, but it is not able to increase it. A volume is not enough if a radio is turned off, and almost nonaudible when radio is turned on. 2. Accuracy is not the best property of this device.
