Garmin plans to come out in 2nd quarter this year with a PDA and GPS all in one. For more information see http://www.garmin.com/products/iQue3600/

Not that I have plans to get one. Wonder how good the GPS part or the PDS part will be.

I know that my Handspring Visor PDA has a GPS attachment you could buy, so I guess this is not that different. I'm sure my Visor doesn't respond to voice-guidance commands - wow!

I didn't get that GPS attachment for my PDA because I've always been a little hesitant to take something so expensive into the rain and snow. Some people do cache with them, though, and like it.

It's not going to be waterproof!!!! ARG!!! Mad What a disappointment Sad . The memory card would be so nice, Mapsource 4.01 maps are so huge Crying or Very sad . Being able to take voice notes and use a touch screen would be a great addition.

I'm pretty happy with my Vista and iPAQ--my only problem is that my USB-port-only notebook doesn't like the driver for my Belkin serial-to-USB adapter, so I'm three or four firmware upgrades behind with the Vista, but it seems to work fine with it's current software version.
