Customer Reviews:
  • annoying and useless as GPS
    The idea is great: in my case, rather than lug a buch of guidebooks around Rome, I would simply enter various points of interest, restaurants, etc. into the device, then wander around. If I felt like stopping, I could check the device to see what was around that was interesting, or find my way somewhere.
    However, the thing takes so long to get a fix, loses its signal so easily, and is so brain dead about what direction you are heading, I darn near threw it into the Tiber, where it belongs. The TomTom software (Navigator 6) is unstable and not as well thought out as Garmin's. And, yes, I have the latest updates, which offer a slight improvement.
    The Pocket PC part of the device is unremarkable....more info
  • Same as rx5915
    Well this is really strange. This is exactly the same device as the iPaq rx5915, which Amazon also sells, but for about $100 cheaper at the time I write this. The last number in HP model numbers indicates the sales channel so the 5910 might be the retail store box and the 5915 might be the online box, or vice versa, etc. So if you're interested in this item, search for the rx5915 right here on Amazon and save yourself some money. Verify this on the HP web site before you lay down your cash, but I'm pretty certain this is true.

    As to the device itself, it's pretty good but suffers from the same issue that all converged devices do. As a Pocket PC, it's not quite as good as a dedicated PPC such as my aging iPaq 2215 (though those are getting harder to find), and as a GPS navigation system, it's not quite as good as a dedicated system such as my Magellan Roadmate 760. But it's basically solid on both counts and, if you need both, you'll probably be happy with it....more info
