Calling HP’s Travel Companion a GPS unit just isn’t fair. The 4.3-inch screen is huge, and 3-D technology means maps can be viewed topographically or at street level—making for foolproof (and fun) navigation. On the road, mate it with a Bluetooth
cell phone and it doubles as a hands-free device. And, natch, it talks. Electronic maps feature text-to-speech. Especially cool: This thing is battery-operated, so you can use it in the car, then just take it off the dash and go when it comes time to explore a new city on foot. On a longer trip? You’ve got audio and video playback as well. 6.6 oz; 2GB flash; Bluetooth, GPS; ipaq.com
