3.0 out of 5 stars It'll be OK when it's finished 25 Mar 2005
By A Customer
First, the good bit. The hardware is terrific. The Zire 72 is a nice piece of kit. Its PC desktop and synchronising software is quick and easy to install and works well. The three mounting options give the choice of fitting to the windscreen, to a heater vent or directly into the cigarette lighter socket. The Kirrio bluetooth module has worked everywhere you would expect it to (it had a bit of a problem with the Tyne Tunnel, as you might expect). It even works indoors if you are close to a window, which is handy for setting up. It comes with both mains and in-car chargers.
Now for the bad bits. I bought a bundled solution expressly to avoid the hassle of figuring out how best to get all the bits talking to each other. Although it all comes in one pretty box there is no single set of instructions telling you what order to do things in and what settings you should choose. What you get is a set of instructions for each element, exactly as if you'd bought them separately off the shelf. One glaring example was in the Mapsonic software setup which took me through all the steps for loading a map of the UK onto the Zire's memory card. This took ages and was a complete waste of time as, of course, the bundle comes with the same map pre-loaded onto an SD-RAM card. With a consolidated set of instructions, this frustrating waste of time could be avoided. With hindsight it would have been quicker to charge everything up and plug it together because, ironically, the bundle will work more or less staright out of the box.
However, my main criticism relates to the Mapsonic routing software. I am an IT professional with 30 years in the industry and if I described its state of completeness as being equivalent to the late beta-testing phase, I would think my assessment generous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Palm Zire, Mapsonic & ViaMichelin updates 6 Aug 2005
By Pirate!
Ahoy there!
Having read many customer reviews, I am seriously looking at the Palm Zire 72 GPS Solution option. That said, many people are saying they cannot input postcodes. The following URL's should help:

ViaMichelin & MapSonic Patches: [...]
I hope this helps. Please let me know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent if you get lost! 7 April 2005
By A Customer
This is an excellent personal organiser. You can do all the usual stuff like editing word docs, excel, games, emails, diary and it has an added bonus of a camera which is always fun!
The navigation is fab if like me you get lost quite easily (and others will be jealous!). For a price much less than an in car navigation kit you get a great PDA and bluetooth gps. It tells you exactly where to go and if you go the wrong way it recalculates your path. Also you can pick anywhere from an overall map of the country by zooming down if you don't know the street name etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars palm zire 72 and gps kit 8 July 2005
I have never been happier with a gadget that i have purchased, the palm itself is functional and does exactly what it says on the tin !! the GPS system is excellent, i never worry about a journey these days as i have a little box in the car telling me where to go and where i am. bluetooth connection with my laptop has made synchronising a doddle, even the camera has proved to be a quality investment.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice PDA shame about the GPS 28 May 2005
By A Customer
The Palm PDA is really nice to use combining a very limited camera ability (due to the poor lens) a useful MP3 player and good diary/contacts system. Useful other parts such as the mini spreadsheet and word type documents it can produce.
The GPS part is poor it has no post code search, the display is not bright enough in daylight and is also very small scale maps to try and read whilst driving.
It is not as good as a Navman or Tom Tom.
Also the GPS unit does not read satelites thru solar reflective car windscreens - pretty useless but I guess all of the others are much the same.
Try a different one.
