Nokia N810 GPS PDA $229

Direct from Nokia $229 maybe tax and shipping I don't know
https://www.nokiausa.com/find-produc...nes/nokia-n810

I have this and can recommend it. email, gps, mediaplayer, handheld computer. It does not do any of those things better than a dedicated device, but it does most everything well and has a big name behind it. It is an actual computer running linux, http://maemo.org/, so stuff lile skype is availabe.

N810 is discontinued and will be replaced by N900.

It gps according to his post, so it could be used for route mapping, speedometer, etc. I would assume.

Yes it has GPS but you have to pay extra for something called wayfinder.

It also has a wifi that seems as good as a laptops broadcast and reception. So on the road you can email, google, and skype if you have wifi available. It has a built in keyboard. All in all I find it useful.
