My wife and four kids have promised to pool finances to buy me the ultimate combined 60th Birthday/Christmas present in the January sales. I'd love a hand-held pc with satnav (obligatory) and any other bells and whistles that would keep me occupied for the next year or so. Any suggestions on gadget/software/pitfalls etc etc gratefully received.

I've got the Ipaq 6340 which has pretty much everything on it, a little flakey on some aspects, but generally a nice tool. :)

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

They will be half price in the January sales. Are you too old to wait two weeks ?

They weren't last year, these items tend to hold to a price range until they are superceded.

@CH. Probably. But I was planning an orgy of techie shopping when I visit my daughter in Manchester at the New Year. I thought I'd show Franny the Dragon that there are types of shopping other than for shoes.

Any ideas on satnav software?

@ Dig Deep. Acer's that good, eh?
