HP iPaq 310 GPS looks cool, software apparently garbage though

James Allan Brady - Jan 30, 2008

No, really, it looks cool, as in the screen is nice and bright and is sporting an 800×480 resolution, but the software sucks. It also has a 600MHz dual-core processor, in a freakin GPS unit, who would have thunk it.

Apparently once you select a route, its like Chucky, it just won’t quit until you’re dead, or at your destination, whichever comes first. The reviewers said that canceling a route was nigh impossible and when they tried turning the unit off to shut it up it somehow turned itself back on a few minutes later just to tell them to make a turn.

You can get one of these on Amazon right now for $320. However the general consensus seems to be to wait for a new version of the device, or at the very least a software update.
