Iím considering buying some add on toys for my visor prism. Just wondering if anyone is using the EyeModule2 Digital Camera or the HandyGPS or Magellan GPS Companion.
Actually, I havenít heard anything good about gps devises on palm type hand-helds but Iíve been considering it anyway as a back up.
If anyone has any thoughts, Iíd appreciate it. Thanks
Posted by Caron on May 03 2002,12:24 pmI thought the magellan GPS COMPANION Was a waste of money. It only gives your present location. Even that seemed to be off from my garmin 111. Just used it twice, and put it away. Name a price and its yours. caron
Posted by Gimpy on May 03 2002,12:59 pmThe only thing I've added to my Prism, other than software, is the Memplug Compact Flash adapter allowing me to use a 128 mb. card in the unit. Works out great having all that storage capacity. I've not heard too much good about the available attachments & I prefer standalone camera & gps. I see now, if you purchase the Prism, they're giving you the Eyemodule for free. I don't put too much faith in stuff you can get at no cost. Just my opinion.
Posted by Rob on May 03 2002,2:16 pmI have purchased the audible listening module so I can listen to books on my commute to work. (1hr twice a day) It works pretty well for that but Iíve really been on the fence about the other devices. I already have a e-map and Nikon digital camera so I guess I should be satisfied with those.
On the other hand Caron, let me think about this. Do you take Paypal?
