Garmin Mobile 10 is in stock and ready to ship. Purchase with 2 days shipping to guarantee delivery before Christmas.
Here are some first impressions:
1. The new GPS 10x is fairly small compared to previous GPS 10. The built quality is solid although not water proof. 2. It uses standard mini-USB jack for power and has Nokia type battery. 3. Mobile XT software can be installed directly to the memory card without connecting PDA/Phone to a computer. 4. Garmin Online features real time information download such as traffic, fuel prices, weather etc. or sending your location to multiple Mobile 10 users.
Few issues observed so far:
1. Mobile XT launches slowly compared to TomTom. 2. Not fully compatible with Treo 680. Voice cracks and causes PDA to reset or hang when exiting the software.
