    Comments about IOGEAR IOGEAR Bluetooth GPS Receiver with Navigation Software for PDAs/Notebooks:

    This is a great bluetooth GPS reciever with software especially for this price. I bought htis model about a year ago for [$]. Compared with other GPS units the software is wonderful on a Windows PDA, Tablet PC and laptop. The only complaint I have is the install onto a PDA. It's lengthy. If the software install is interfered with (by any means) it will need to be restarted. On any PC it's easy. I recomend this product to everyone. I thought it was a [*] being from a lesser known manufacturer but was pleasantly surprised with it's performance.
