Discovery and PDA

Hi,

I posted a couple of weeks ago about using a PDA for sat nav and whether it
would work behind a heated screen.

Well i took the plunge and bought a Mio 168 and can confirm it works like a
dream behind the heated screen.

Thanks for posting your findings, I'm toying with a PDA based mapping / Tom
Tom Go. I'd had issues in tree cover or heavy rain with a GPS mouse on a
laptop but got around this using the sunroof for the mouse. Difficult to use
the same for the Mio and Tom Tom Go though...
