HP iPAQ 310/314 Travel Companion

Newly launched 300 series HP iPAQ 310/314 Travel Companion is by far the most interesting handheld device in the latest HP iPAQ collection.

Although it’s Windows CE 5 based, it’s not a Pocket PC, nor PDA, nor a smartphone. HP iPAQ 310/314 is a dedicated 3D navigation device with multimedia playback capabilities that can also double up as a hands free answering system for your Bluetooth enabled cellphone. It has a big 4.3″ touchscreen custom HP interface, fast CPU and lots of built-in storage.

    Sound is appalling on this device, it's so bad that initially it's difficult to understand the directions, the sat nav itself seems to work okay, but the other functions such as bluetooth connectivity with mobile phone etc are pointless because the sound is so bad.

    Motorhome GPS

    The most reasonable solution for avoiding the route hurdles available in the market is the motorhome GPS. The motorhome are large vehicles, which are used by the people as the temporary homes. Their large size creates havoc in their movement for which it is basically designed. If there is no proper and convenient movement of the vehicle, there is no point of using a motorhome at all. To avoid facing the route restrictions, GPS is used with the navigation system. It works on the satellite signals for positioning of the vehicle in which the devise has been installed. This positioning with the navigation system assists in safely mapping the journey. The system even warns of the steep hills and penalty charges hotspots. Motorhome GPS is a must for the various motorhomes.

    Isn't that something! I was just about to buy something else, but I've just reconsidered. I'm about to take a very long journey to Europe and this looks like an ideal pal for the ride.Hoping I get good Gatwick parking and all goes well, I think this is going to make my trip a very nice one.

    … But in any kind of travel (one shift a day at the mountain, expedition to the tropics, sea vacation, studying abroad, etc..) Difficult situations may arise, for survival and we always need travel insurance. “Partir c'est mourir un peu”. (When you leave, you die a little) – as the French so wittily say.
