  Love the new Mio H610 DigiWalker

It is not a smartphone or PDA; however, it is a cool Windows CE device. I am referring to the new Mio H610 DigiWalker which is a nice, compact GPS device that also plays music, videos, and displays pictures. The H610 has USA, and Canada maps built-in, and a nice quality screen to display them. I purchased the device for navigating new neighborhoods while walking. Since I retired, I very rarely use my car. Walking and the T (local transit in Boston) are my main transportation modes. Overall, the H610 acquires a signal easily, although it may take a minute or two if you don't have an unobstructed view of the sky. If you are walking near tall buildings, you may loose a signal for a short time. A nice feature is the walking mode for navigating which does not consider the direction of one way streets when planning your route like it would have to for a vehicle. I have not tried the H610 in my car; however, I have received a strong GPS signal while riding the T trolleys, and buses.

I took the SD card from my PPC-6700, and inserted it in the H610. All the WMV video clips, MP3's, and JPEG pictures were immediately recognized, and the H610 did an admirable job displaying them on its quality screen. In addition, the H610 has a calculator, tipping calculator, measurement converter, currency converter, and multi-national clothing size converter. All the extras can easily be updated via a USB connection to a PC.

If you need a compact GPS unit that you can also use to show pictures and videos, the H610 should certainly be at the top of your shopping list.

I was a Palm OS champion for years, but switched to the Windows Mobile platform in 2005. My experiences using my Windows Mobile devices, and other electronic devices will be detailed in this blog. The posts reflect what I like, and do not like about a device, or application. Your needs, and opinion may be different.
