Acer N35 GPS
Advantages: Low price, intergrated GPS
Disadvantages: Product broke a number of times
This unit is rather old now, although still available second hand. I would however be rather wary, as in my experience it was plagued with problems.
On the positive side the intergrated GPS works well, and makes an ideal sat nav PDA combo. The Destinator Lite software that came with the unit whilst being functional was rather as the name suggests light in the features department.
When I got my unit it was only £99+VAT, so was a bit of a bargain I thought. And it has done well when it hasn't been broken. The battery life is sufficient for most things, although don't expect to be able to have a full day on the hills using this as a GPS, as it will run out. I seemed to always forget to keep mine charged up when not using it, so had to reinstal all the software, luckily the backup restore works well so this only takes a few mins as long as you remember to make a back up in the first place!
The screen is OK, nothing flash, and not amazing resolution, but at this price that wasn't really a problem.
My problems with the unit mostly surrounded the internal speaker, which on three occasions stopped working. This was rather problematic if using it as a sat nav as you couldn't hear the instructions!
There is also no wireless internet connectivity, which means you need a wireless SD card, downside with this is it takes up the SD slot so you can't download or upload any files of worth without getting a combined wireless/memory card which is rather expensive.
Summary: Good PDA/GPS combo, cheap and cheerful
