I wanted a GPS for quite some time. I have been looking for one since I bought my Treo. I installed map software to my Treo, I only need a bluetooth GPS to have a complete GPS navigation system. I wanted a GPS that looks cool, I don’t want something that is bulky and ugly. The Holux GPSlim 240 fits my requirement perfectly. It is just about the size of a pack of gum, you can even wear it like a necklace. It use the same GPS chip set as its bigger brothers, which I tired with a borrowed unit from my friend, so I know the reception is good.
Holux recently released new generation of GPS devices using a new chipset, so they are cutting the price of their previous generation product. Although the new GPS tracks more satellites and have longer battery life, it is also more expensive. I figure the Holux 240 is enough for my needs, so I bid for a cheap one on ebay. I tried the GPS with my Treo today, it works perfect. The map keeps track of my position and provides voice navigate telling me when to turn left or turn right. I just need to find something to hold my Treo in my car, so that I can see the map while driving. Now with my new GPS, Pat cannot complain I don’t know the way because I will never get lost.
