    PDA with GPS expandability

    Hi, I'm just wondering which PDA's under $300 (excluding the GPS kit) have good GPS systems. All I can find right now is the Magellan for Palm m500 series. However, the m500 is black and white... I think.. and my sister doesn't want black and white.

    Umm.. and also does the new Palm Zire 71 have GPS support? I can't seem to find any GPS add-on for that particular model.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I'm gonna assume that it works for all the m5xx series palms... I have an m505 and its color, any model above that is color as well. So it should work on that one. (if my assumption is correct)

    i'll say they are quite decent

    the only drawback is the Smalls creen size



    just make sure you always have their latest CD Maps and upgrades from their website

    I recently purchased a Garmin iQue3600...although I think the retail price is above $400. Luckily I get a good discount from them. Its built as all-in-one. Very nice system from its description. Unfortuneatly, I have not received it yet, so I do not have any first hand knowlege yet. But, it might be worth researching.

    Garmin sells more than the Magellan
