Handheld-based GPS navigation

Fed up with getting lost? Don't trust human map-readers? Why not add a GPS receiver to your handheld? Here's a round-up of recent reviews.

A number of add-on solutions are now available, for both Palm OS and Pocket PC handhelds, while Garmin has just released the first handheld -- a Palm OS 5 device – with an integrated GPS receiver. We have reviewed a fair number of these handheld-based GPS solutions, and round them up here for your perusal.
