I've very close to purchasing a Garmin PDA with GPS. NE 1 here have any experience with one?

Not with the Garmin one in particular, but I do have a Sony Clie with GPS hooked up in my car. Works great... but I would imagine the Garmin would be a better all in one solution.
I have had the garmin ique for almost a year now. It is a wonderful device. I bought it because I need a PDA for medical software and I felt for a little more money I would get the garmin with gps. I got one of the first of the production run and it would crash about once a week and make this terrible screeching sound. A reset would fix it. So I asked Garmin to send me a new one. The new one has worked perfectly.
A few things, as a PDA it's relatively big and heavy. The battery life sucks when you use the gps (car kit is pretty necessary) Also, it will sometimes lose your position in the city (when tall buildings are around).
I do love this thing. Never being lost in any car or while on foot is great! It has so many features to list.
I bought a memory card, car kit, and external antenna (so I could mount it lower on the dash).

Thanks for your review. We have nav in our car and in our plane and we're spoiled. I ordered the Garmin because I wanted one that my wife can use and one that I can use in a rental car. Pulling our horse trailer to new places for horse shows should be easier if we have a nav.
