    Hi, newbie here. I've had my Ipaq 3150 for years and was wondering if there's a way with upgrades & software to use it as a gps unit in my car? I have the expansion sleeve.
    Any suggestions would be welcomed. I've only use this for contacts and MS money and would like to see if there's more that this old unit can do.
    Thanks.

    It may be possible, but I'm not sure how many GPS programs still support Pocket PC 2000. You might look at the minimum requirements for TomTom Navigator, iGuidance, and some of the other options. Hardware shouldn't be a problem, as you could either attach a GPS to the serial port, or get some kind of expansion card--the type depending on what sleeve you have.

    You might be able to purchase an older (PPC2000-compliant) GPS/navigation system used on eBay. Depending on the model, you may also need an adapter of some kind.
