HandyGPS Pro

Tue Oct 30, 2001 - 9:53 AM EST - By Scott Hanselman


The GPS has always been the Springboard Module we've waited for.  As soon as we heard that Visors were infinitely expandable, we all longed for the day we could mount our color Visors to our dashboard and head for the open road.  After a number of arguably failed attempts, has Nexian got it right with the HandyGPS Pro?  We shall see!

The HandyGPS Pro improves on the original HandyGPS in a number of ways.  It now includes a long-lasting rechargeable lithium battery that Nexian claims can last for 10 hours.  The $229.99 bundle includes StreetFinder from Rand McNally for both PalmOS and the Full Windows Version.
