Asus MyPal A636
The register has reviewed the Asus MyPal A636 GPS system and writes:
Asus MyPal A636 is a worthy alternative to GPS-integrated PDAs from the likes of Mio and Acer. It’s less successful as a PDA than the others, if only because the hardware has so clearly been designed with satellite navigation usage in mind. As a GPS platform, it’s impressive, with a good, flexible antenna design and a powerful receiver. It’s let down a little by the bundled software, but there’s nothing to stop you switching to a better app later on.
The A636 doesn’t come cheap, though. At Â£349, it’s not over-priced, but there are cheaper alternatives: you can pick up the Windows Mobile 2003-based, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi-less Mio 168 for around Â£200, for example. Asus is offering a cheaper sibling, the A632, for Â£299 – it too lacks Wi-Fi.
