If you own a PDA or phone equipped with navigation software, but lack the actual GPS part, then you consider the Parrot Bluetooth 3400 LS-GPS. Once the Parrot and your PDA/Cell are linked via Bluetooth, the Parrot 3400 sends GPS coordinates to the PDA, which then calculates your position on the loaded software. The Parrot is compatible with Route 66, ViaMichelin, Tom Tom Navigator, and more. Audio-able direction can also be provided and routed through the car’s speakers. The 3400 is also able to grab your phone book, and display incoming caller pics if present.
The device is current available with the following:
- Nokia Series 60 + Route 66 (Mobile 2005)
- Sony Ericsson P910i + Route 66 (Mobile 2006)
- HP iPAQ 6340 + ViaMichelin MapSonic 2.5
- HP iPAQ 5455 + Sony Ericsson S700i + Navigon 4.2
- HP iPAQ 5500 + Siemens S65 + Tom Tom Navigator 1.53
Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn’t Garmin make a PDA with built in GPS? Seems like over kill, but you if have the ‘GPS after thought’, and happened to purchase one of the above devices, you now have a solution to your serious lack of sense of direction.
