You will need this to make it work with the 5550. It comes with the software, and a compact flash GPS receiver. You will need an SD card to store the maps on. This is what you get, Install/Data Disks Quick Start Guide GPS Receiver In-Vehicle Power Adapter Vent Mount Yoni, eXpansys Product Support,
Thanks thats great, on the back of your recomendation i've ordered both parts. If you hadnt come back with your suggestions i was going to look elsewhere. Cheers
Ive now taken delivery of this unit. However the software CD case clearly states its only compatible with Windows Mobile 2002 and the IPAQ 5550 runs 2003 version. I've managed to get it working but am not sure if its correct. In addition i have a problem with the CF GPS unit as that is also not compatible. Help !
I now have the GPS unit being recognised by my Ipaq on com 4 but its stuck in "determining Current Position" Do i need a replacement GPS Receiver as i thought ?
Its been two days since i posted this and i havent had a reply. Why not ? If i cant get you to sort the problem then i'll have to send the whole lot back to you for full credit as it clearly doesnt work for my operating system (windows mobile 2003 )as i've found out recently its stated on ALK's website. You neglected to mention this when you sold me the unit
