Hi, I'm new to GPS etc. and need pointing in the right direction. I have an IPAQ 3950 and I want GPS for both car and walking / treking.

I just have the IPAQ, no extension jackets etc., so I've been looking at the Navman 3450 as an option. This looks OK for in-car but what about on foot?

I need to be able to log route/distance travelled, and plotting intended treks in advance would be very useful.

I see there are several software options for these "handheld" functions but are they compatable with the Navman Jacket?

Any ideas / suggestions greatfully received!

If you are looking at hiking etc then I would personally recommend not getting any of the route navigation software but instead get something like memory map http://www.memory-map.co.uk/ which will give you an OS map of the area you want to walk over, with logging of your route etc.

Personally I have this installed for detailed and out of car use and TomTom3 for driving.
