Yeah good deal, I bought a factory refurb 720T and you could not tell it was not brand new.
#2
Even at twenty quid less I would say the IPAQ 314 seems a better bet.

Also - the Ipaq take memory cards and does not have a hard drive. It claims 8GB is the max - but that is likely to have been the max available when it was made - so it could take the 16GB or 32GB that are available now.

All it needs is someone here who bought the card for something else to confirm it.

I think this is a great deal - dunno why it's not hot.

When you consider the cost of the n american maps - and the fact it has bluetooth for phone calls - makes it a bargain IMO.

I have to agree... being a PDA TomTom Navigator user, I would take badly to having to lug a hefty TomTom unit about, and the IPAQ looks a very good solution for the day my PDA packs in!

Any idea if the IPAQ would connect to a bluetooth to fm radio transitter unit at the same time as it connects to a phone, as I find most units a bit too quiet for my liking, but don't want multiple devices all over the car (like I have now)? Even on the PC, bluetooth can be a bit feeble when multiple devices are hooked up :-(

Not quite sure what that means?

that hp ipaq 314 is available for about 100quid now as they seem to have a £30 cashback offer from expansys
http://www.expansys.com/d.aspx?i=156154
#8
Wasn't the Ipaq cashback offer up after the 31st July with HP ??

or have they now extended it ??
#9
I have one of these, due to a cock up at Halfords.

It works incredibly well, but is the size of a brick compared to my missuss' navigo.
#10
I have had one of these for a few years now. I find that because it reads from the HD it appears more responsive, which is useful for roundabouts etc were the likes of TomTom One can struggle to keep up. Much better than my old PDA solution too.
#11
Maps will be a few years old on the TomTom 910, however this shouldn't be a big problem. Map update will cost you almost as much as the purchase price however.

Good price if you want USA/Canada maps as well though. Ther car hire firms will charge you this much to rent a satnav for a week or so!

The Ipaq 314 offer has expired, as your invoice has to be dated before 31st July 2008, with applications having to be in within 28 days of your invoice date. The company operating the cashback for HP are quite strict too - they are rejecting claims if the invoice does not have ALL of the required details on it, so a date after 31/7/08 will obviously fall foul of that!

The Ipaq 314 is about £30 cheaper than Expansys at Dabs.com anyway.

How do you think the owners of this website make their money? :roll:

When you post a link here, if there is an afiliature link that will benefit the owners of this website, they will change it to their afiliate link.

Why do you think the moderators post so many deals themselves??? :whistling:

anyone has the country lists? are these preloaded? cross-border?

Noooo! Don't do it! Don't forget there's a very good reason the Ipaq is being dumped everywhere at <100 + £30 cashback.

While the Ipaq looks good on paper, it has LOTS of issues which make it unusable in practice, e.g.:-

Speaker quiet and distorted.
Text-to-Speech is very low quality and mostly unintelligible if there's any background noise in the car.
Bluetooth connection is unreliable and speech quality is very poor.
Constantly tells you to turn right at roundabouts when it means straight on
Speedcam and POI alerts don't work properly.
High intensity power and bluetooth LEDS are blinding and distracting at night.
Front mounted power button logic is wrong so it turns on instantly with the slightest pressure in your pocket/bag but needs a long press to turn off.

The ONLY saving grace of the Ipaq is the 800x480 display. But the rest of the package is so poorly put together (including iGo being crippled by HP) that it's a pain to use and in some situtations down right dangerous. Might be worth a pop if you're a gadget freak who likes hacking Windows CE (note, NOT Windows Mobile), but even then bear in mind if you corrupt a startup file there's no "factory reset" facility, it has to go back to HP.
Without the (dubious) frills, for on the road Sat-Nav, even a basic TomTom wipes the floor with it.

As for the 910, it's OK but bulky, and 2 generations old. Might be better too look for a recon TomTom 720 (which is superb, and sometimes crops up around £150).

I want to buy a SatNav and thought Ipaq 314 was a good option.
Is it still a bad choice even with the software update (5 June 2008)?
What would be the other alternatives?
cheers

Please tell me you're joking :w00t:
If you're not sure what a hard disk is, then I'd suggest you stick with a £2.99 map from your local garage!

This unit contains everything you need in one (slightly oversized) unit.

Please ignore the person who gave you such a rude reply. He's presumably smarter than the rest of us.

The 910 uses a hard disk drive instead of an SD card. This enables more maps to be loaded at the same time. Only really useful if you travel outside the UK a lot.

I thought the IPAQ uses SD cards, whereas the 32GB ones are SDHC or something and not compatible?

@alchemistkevin
Yes the Ipaq 314 has built in GPS. Don't let the "Ipaq" name fool you - it's NOT a full blown PocketPC/PDA runnign Windows Mobile like the rest of the Ipaq range. It simply running the barebones WIndowsCE OS (like the cheap Navigos etc.) with a simplified (i.e. crippled) version of Igo8. If it had been running Windows Mobile so you could run PDA applications on it, it might have been worth the money (especially with the high res screen).

@spitfire51
The HP software update doesn't fix many of the fundamental problems - especially the appalling TTS quality and the misleading voice instructions, nor the hardware issues like the overbright LEDs or stupid power switch.

As for alternatives, I think I've already answered that one. The TT 720, if you can find one at the right price, has much the same functionality, inc. Text to Speech streetnames and Bluetooth handsfree, but unlike the 314, it actually works as it should and just lets the driver get on with driving.

The 910, with its internal hard drive, is a decent option if you plan on storing lots of music and maps on board. But then, SD cards taken by other units are so cheap now it makes that advantage less of an issue, and new, slimmer devices (like the TomTom x20/x30 range) are much easier to put in your pocket/bag when leaving the car.

@meispete
The card slot on the Ipaq 314 is SDHC compatible.
#26
I've spent almost this much on maps alone since buying my tomtom onexl, so this is a cracking deal.
#27
This is my first time so I hope you find this useful :oops:

I have only ever bought one other refurbished item and that was good value. I needed something that would see us to our holiday destination in Germany and this looked like a good deal. I email their Internet account manager and asked two questions (1) Who refurbished the units (2) What edition of maps where loaded. He replied: -

These units are re-worked by Tom Tom's UK repair agents are surplus stock units which have been returned by other retailers. The map data is 2006 edition.

I have owned Dell, Navman and Tom Tom and its a question of what your used to and I have to say I'm a Tom Tom man :-D
#28
the 910 is a GREAT piece of kit - i wonder if you will get the free map upgrade within 30days like full price Tom Toms?
#29
I had no idea Tom Tom offered updates, but rest assured I will be contacting them as soon as my unit arrives and asking, never been one to miss out on a deal - Watch this space :thumbsup:

Do you own a jet.? only so many places you can be within 1 day, week or month even.

In true think what USE it for and purchase lastest for that NEED. BEST option on GPS systems.

I took delivery of my Refurbished Tom Tom 910 yesterday and what a disappointment. :cry:

The last factory refurbished item I bought was a Dell Axim so my expectations where high. The first clue was the very tired and battered looking box, secured by yards of tape. When I got into the box I found a unit in a worst state than my 3 year old Tom Tom 510. I quick checked revealed that all the bits where there but no attention had been paid to it's condition. The windscreen mount was stained with a yellow mounting cup and what looked like food residue trapped on the arm. Cables where knotted, not a cable tie in sight. One or two bits could have been new, like the remote carrier (because it has a sticky mount).

I connected it up to my Lap Top and used Tom Tom Home to see what I had bought. The next thing I noted was when I went to enter my post code, my post code changed back in 2000 this unit was trapped in a time warp so it became obvious that the maps where very old. I then tried to download some of the new sounds and warnings from Tom Tom, they have not appeared on the unit yet. Looks like I have a long struggle before me, If this string remains open I will keep you posted. :-(

That's a real shame. I blame Morgan Computers. Nice people but they live in a time warp. I bought a refurb laptop from them a while back and it arrived with a cracked screen. The power supply was rolling around in the delivery box. They did replace the laptop but both arrived dirty. Not even wiped with a cloth to get rid of the original users dirt. I don't know what refurbished means to Morgan, probabley switch it on, if it works then ship it out.

As you say, thet could learn a lesson from Dell, Casio, even small companys like SVP or BigPockets.

mine came in decent condition except for the box. i have yet to plug it into the pc but have used it for getting about and it was cool i also used the phone system in it for handsfree and it was ok... i linked it to my phone better than i can my xlone.
the only thing that really lets it down is the holder as it cannot hold it. it just drops down so i had to position it on the dash which is not really a good look and can be hard to see.

Some said if i email tomtom i can get a different stand does anyone know the address? i'd also like to update it but would rather not pay so if anyone knows how then please post here.

let me know how this goes. i left the box and everything at my mums house so if i can save the drive there by reading here it would be a help.

Apart from looking a bit dirty, on the face of it it seemed like a good deal. I had to phone them about a missing mic but that arrived the next day.

My troubles began when I hooked it into my PC, I downloaded the latest edition of Tom Tom Home and connected my 910. It reported they needed to update my software, so I checked what version it had and started the download after a few minutes it reported the download and installation was successful. This should have raised the alarm bells because if it was a "Factory Refurbished" item why did I need a new operating system, surely that would have been done as part of the refurbishment? I then download a new start-up screen and added some new "Alerts".

Now I was ready for a road test, fired up my refurbished unit but no sign of my new start-up screen, then I checked the software version and it was still the same. This download had done nothing, the version number remained unchanged. As I drove down the road my screen dipped lower and lower, I put it back to its start position and it would drop again.

I contacted Paul Taylor Morgan Internet Sales, he suggested I contact Tom Tom to see what they suggested. That proved to be a dead-end, my request to Tom Tom is still awaiting a response.

Morgan issued a RMA number today and it is being collected tomorrow. Lets see what happens next. I do believe in > > > :santa:

PS - Tom Tom will be hapy to update the software if I am willing to hand them £49.99 :-)
