    Right Ive been look at a couple of PDA's

    First I was looking at buying a Dell Axim x50v about £250 maybe a little more then I've been looking at iPAQ's something like the hx4700 about £300 but then I went to O2 homepage and they have the XDA IIs for £69. with contract of course, It's a bank holiday special, how much are they normally? And are they any good? They all seen to have a simular spec apart from the resolution on the XDA.

    Has anybody got any of these, and what do you think of them?

    Cheers guys.

    I'm in the same boat too. Favoring the Axim X50V at the moment. Does any know if this is capable for Sat Nav duties as well?

    I have an X50v and use it all the time with Tomtom3 for sat nav. I've used it with both bluetooth and CF GPS unit and it works brilliantly.

    As a general purpose PDA it performs admirably and the VGA screen really makes a difference.

    Thanks for the reply. Out of interest what CF GPS unit do you use? I feel this solution has got to be the neatest.

    I use a SysOnChip CF GPS PlusII. Very compact and really good reception.

    One point bearing in mind if you want to use the X50v as a GPS in the car. The X50v consumes more power than the lesser X50 you need to make sure the car cord you buy is capable of providing 2A current as a minimum, cheap car cords off ebay cannot power the unit.

    If you do buy one from Dell buy the car cord at the same time (if you can buy 2 and I'll send you the £9 so I can get rid of the flaky one I have)
