I purchased this when it first appeared back in 2004, it as proved to be a superb bit of kit until just recently. The fixing point for the external aerial has just broken, quite annoyed considering that it has not been used with the external aerial that often. I have been able to source a new back case, which included the built in aerial which should solve my problem, will see how long this one last's.

Bought the Mitac Mio 168 in January as my first PDA. It came complete with mio map uk and has it's own built in gps system. It's really good. The maps are clear and the spoken directins are loud and clear too. It's easy to set up a route and it guides you there 'no problem'.
