Ipaq Companion 314 Review
20 August 2008
Excerpt: I agree with the reviewer that the speaker is poor and the synthesized voice is not the best. I also get some wrong directions e.g. 'Turn right at the about' when it's actually straight on or left. However the worst thing about the Ipaq 314 companion is that it crashes randomly whilst driving!
Pros: Awesome screen, low price .
Cons: Random crashes, poor software support, no full reset
Excerpt: This is just a brief report of my first 24hrs with the product. Used to tomtom but fancied the 3d map experience, unfortunately my area is not shown in 3d, a real disappointment and hp are not putting mind at ease by saying the 3d coverage will get better. Cannot understand what the voice commands are saying, speaker is also poor and distorted. The map keeps reverting back to 2d mode when driving for no reason, this is dangerous as I have to keep finding the 3d button.
Pros: Great screen and compact unit
Cons: Navigation, sound, no access to standard windows screen to load tomtom !
