Martin I have moved this topic as it will probably get a better response in this forum, to power a PDA from the bike you need to consider fitting a ciggy lighter socket as found in most cars, then plug the Ipaq into the socket via a car charger lead.
It is possible to get a wired GPS unit for your device that will do both the charging of the PDA and power the GPS, whilst at the same time supplying the GPS positional data to the PDA.
You also need to consider water proofing the ipaq, in some way - the question of audio routing is simply an earpiece wired to the PDA's audio output (although on a bike you really need to consider the safety, any restriction in movement could prove a disaster) Bluetooth audio could be the safest option, but sadly your choice of PDA negates this route.
The camera database does contain the fixed AND mobile camera locations, so it will warn you of the locations - Mike
