I saw one of these reviewed in a magazine a couple of days ago, and thought then that I really wanted one.

I've been using Windows Mobile on a HP Ipaq 514 Voice Messenger for a couple of months, and it's really easy to use, and has thus far seemed uber reliable. Whilst the 514 is solidly built, the Airo is in whole different league!

Yes, you should be able to. I can run TomTom on my smartphone.

Definitely.

Only problem is the screen is so small so may stick to an Ipaq.

Talking of screens this sort of technology should be used on chartplotters etc.

Saw this unit at the Earls Court Boat Show.

Is being sold here by MES/Cactus.

Am sure they will have it on show at Excel in a feww or so.

Looks very good.
