Pretty good

J. Piev, Amazon
8 December 2007
  • Summary: I'm a technophobe and don't have the time or patience to read the instructions and figure out how its all meant to work. I bought this unit purely because it had wifi and a word editor, so that I could travel without a laptop and still have web access and be able to do work.

Great (except for the microsoft software)

  • Summary: I bought this for travel so I could do 3 things: (1) Use the GPS to find my way around, (2) Access my email, and (3) Complete my online timecard. Of those three things, only the GPS works to my satisfaction. The GPS is very good.

Full-Fledged Navigator 6 SW is NOT Included

  • Summary: I have had my iPAQ rx5915 for a little over a week now, and overall I like it. It packs a lot of features into a small package and it has been fairly stable. However, the bundled Tomtom sw has been a major disappointment to me.

Ipaq 5900

David A. Cicotte, Amazon
7 December 2007
  • Summary: I searched long and hard for an ipaq type of handheld. I had a 4700 series with lots of ram and a good processer (600mhz). I am disappointed with the companion as far as speed and ease of use, but, am happy with the size and weight. If you are looking for 'power' .. buy the other ipaq.

Small, somewhat effective

book geek, Amazon
7 December 2007
  • Summary: Purchased HP rx9515 for storing books, information, etc, as well as GPS capabilities. I lost part of the icons on the desktop (for memory status, battery reserve, etc) the first week I had the unit.

OK

H. Kim, Amazon
7 December 2007
  • Summary: I'm using for almost 8 months. Touch screen sometimes does not work well. It is annoying. Other than that, can't complain. One advantage of it is that the GPS navi works even inside.

Wish they didn't include Worldmate

Richard Rolleri, Amazon
7 December 2007
  • Summary: Have had Activesync problems. They seem to be related to the Worldmate application. Can't remove Worldmate from the PDA. I like the info in Worldmate, it just causes problems. The display is good. The stylus is mounted for left handed use.

TomTom poor with support for this device

7 December 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this product 2 months ago thinking I could solve most of the critical points I read online but I am still struggling trying to run the French map which I successfully downloaded and installed onto an SD card.

Has anyone talked to TomTom or HP regarding the free maps update?

Pulsar, Amazon
7 December 2007
  • Summary: I bought this nifty little combination device about 3 weeks ago. So far it is performing as expected, but with a few quirks. I have not noticed startup times to be a big issue, as has been noted in some other reviews.

Convergence is not always good

M. Dembski, Amazon
7 December 2007
  • Summary: My old palm pilot was dying and I thought this would be the thing to replace it and get a GPS at the same time. I see now why IPAQ's never made it big. The Windows operating system is the biggest drawback, its VERY SLOW and not very intuitive.
