I have a palmOne Tungsten T3 and have used it extensively on road trips with TomTom’s GPS offering called Navigator. It comes with
a sleek holder designed just for the T3 and it has worked very well – so much so, that it has spoiled me rotten and turned me into a
"car kit snob." See, those universal holders from various manufacturers just don’t hold up to this work of art, and when I got my HP
iPAQ hx4700, I was in shell shock when I had to get the Arkon Universal Car Kit. Gasp! Yeah, I know. ‘Ugh, look at those dangling
wires and that huge unit the iPAQ sits in!’ I thought like a spoiled brat when I first mounted the beast to my sporty supercharged
Well, this Beverly Hills-type kid gets what he wants, now! Yes, the good folks over at Seidio have just released a car kit made
exclusively for the hx4700 and it slides right into the unit like OJ’s hand did in that infamous glove. Oh wait, wrong metaphor,
that’d be for the Arkon.
But seriously, this car kit is sleek, compact, and brimming with features. It comes with a built-in speaker to amplify your next
point of turn instruction when using one of the many GPS programs available for the PocketPC. It of course charges and powers your
unit while giving you a jack for either a GPS "mouse" (external antenna) or a Bluetooth GPS unit. You also have the choice of
plugging in the supplied DC cigarette lighter cord or harness up the hardwire cable under your dash Seidio so conveniently packs in
the box for you. And if your GPS software already supports landscape mode, then no worries dude, the swivel adaptor will allow you
to easily go from a Mona Lisa portrait to an Excel spreadsheet-like view with just a simple flick of your wrist!
Now, are all you 90210 BMW M5 kiddies hitting Seidio’s Web site with me and ordering yours via overnight right now?
