Excerpt: I have found this device to be very reliable, I've been using it for 18 months and it hasn't let me down. It is easy to sinchronise with my PC and compatible with most poctet software. The memory card slot means you can trnasport data from both your desktop to your HP computer and offer flexibility in how you work. The screen although a good size means that you may start squinting if looking at it for any length of time.
Pros: Nice and compact
Cons: tend to have to softboot more frequnetly that I would like
Excerpt: This award-winning PDA or Palm top computer has a solid combination of productivity and small form factor. Hosting a SDIO slot, it is capable supporting SD/MMC standard type memory cards meaning you can use the memory card to hold up to 2GB of data, more then enough for hundreds of documents.
Excerpt: I purchased the HP rz1710 because I wanted to have the functionality of PDA and the benefits of a GPS system. The product comes in two parts basically you get the rz1710 PDA and a stand alone GPS receiver that you can either stick to the window of your car or the dashboard. An adhesive plate is provided if you wish to mount the unit on your dashboard. The GPS software provided is Via Michelin.
Excerpt: Brought this navigator (very overpriced) from my catalouge (£500) From the day i got it, it has given me nothing but grief. For my important journeys (Scotland-Birmingham and Birmingham-London) it has failed to work, keeps freezing and keeps telling me 'unknown error' then shutting down. It takes a while to start working (when it decides to work). I have called up Hp who were equally as useless telling me when it freezes to just reset it.
Summary: This unit was a great help at first, since you can install softwares like MS Streets and Trips in it and lots more. But, there was an unexplanable defect in the screen calibration with my iPAQ unit. For some reason I don't know, with the screen and everything working, the touch screen (that is when you're trying to use the stylus and use your pda) has to lag soooooooooo much it's terrible.
Excerpt: It is a slim, elegant PDA, which is quite rigid for a firm grip around the sides. Its strongest plus point is its price and its thin and light design. Even because of its low spec., what makes RZ1710 stand firmly among the others is its simplicity. What has it got? It has latest OS with standard applications like Word, Excel, Messenger, and IE on it.
Pros: Smart, Cheap and ideal to run simple application
Excerpt: When I first bought this PDA I was a bit unhappy with the fact that it didn't have Bluetooth, but this was my fault because I thought it just came as standard. However after a while I decided to keep it. The main reasons was the ease of use, as with all HP PDA's it was so easy to use. Navigating the menus was very easy as was the changing of settings.
Excerpt: I bought the ' nHP Ipaq RZ1710 Navigator ' because I wanted the functionality of a PDA and the gadgetry of a GPS, so I thought this would fit the bill, and it does, especially if you are on a budget! If money were no object I would shell out a bit more on a dedicated Tom Tom system and a half decent laptop , but were not all rich !!
Excerpt: When I bought this for just over £110, I was a little nervous that maybe it was something that was not up to the job, not the functions I was looking for , a glorified calculater . It's got infrared, but no bluetooth. But I suppose at that price, and it is from HP with an IPAQ badge so what the heck. When I switch it on, I found a high quality display, with pocket pc 2003 installed, which is fully compatible with my desktop.
