I found one I would like to buy for a GPS nav system.
The seller says it includes a 2 GIG CF card to load as much map as possible. However on the specs of the iPAQ is says it's maximum memory is limited to 64 MB CF card. Does the specs mean active ram memory, as opposed to just a place to store data for maps?
Also.. the screen is 240x320.. is that resolution enough to read maps well?
This is a pretty big purchase for me, I'd prefer not to make a mistake.
In my earlier post [webmasterworld.com] I talked about how I did it with my Dell Axim. 64 should be enough. Actually the 32 on board should be enough but that would be the only thing you could use it for. Another option is to get the CF sleeve for it or the PCMCIA sleeve and a CF adapter. A map of the whole metro Houston area which is very big is only 10MB. You will never get the whole US on that thing even with a lot more memory. The way it is done is you do a route on your PC then it sends only the data for that route to the IPAq. You can get micro drives that might hold a couple states. You would need the sleeve for that.
I saw a 3630 today that had a 128MB CF chip in the CF sleeve. I have no idea what they are talking about on the IPAQ specs but if you have the CF sleeve you can put as big as you want. The 3630 will not take CF without the black CF sleeve or a PCMCIA sleeve with a CF adapter.
