A lot of people ask how we are going to make it around for 2 months, so here is the stuff we bought for this trip in hopes that it will work. Famous last words I know.
Phone: HP iPaq 6300.
Built in bluetooth for GPS and loaded maps I bought on eBay, WIFI for surfing for our next place to stay for the night and uploading these posts. I’ll be typing the posts from the thumb keyboard shown so please don’t get mad for lack of capitalization or spelling typos.
GPS: GlobalSat BT-335.
Looks like a little gray lump and supposedly good enough to get signal inside of buildings. we will see. I'll be happy if we do not look like tourists with a map stretched out in the car while we drive. It connects to the phone through the Bluetooth.
Camera: Konica-Minolta dImage A2.
I finally broke down and bought a digital camera. Up to this point I had been using the crappy one built into video camera. It seems like they finally have it to the point of an SLR camera so I am happy.
