Hello All; I currently hace a Garmin GPS-V GPS and a Clie SJ33 PDA. The GPS is my first and the Clie is my fourth PDA, all Palm Based. They both need to be replaced for various reasons and am looking at getting a Dell Axim X30 and Dell GPS as the solution. I travel 100% of the time and love my GPS but the memory available for maps is only 19mb, not to mention you have to load them via serial cable The X30 can hold an external SD card and I was thinking of getting a 256Mb card to start off with.
Anyone know On the GPS:
How many maps from the GPS can fit in 256mb?
How long would it take to load 256mb on the X30 via active sync?
Does the GPS support Tracking, trackback, waypoint creation? If so how many waypoints?
Can I create a route manually via waypoints or POI's to get from point A to B or do you have to use the automatic routing only?
Is the POI data selectable for download by type or are they a part of the map set and therefore consumes extra memory.
Does the GPS receiver work if mounted inside a hard saddle bag (motorcycle)?
IS the receiver water resistant?
For the X30 do you know if:
I can play MP3's? Does the 1800ma battery increase the size of the unit? Syncing with Outlook 2003 for my contacts and note are pretty much seemless?
