Palm Tungsten E2 with GPS

Anyone familiar with the Palm Tungsten E2 with GPS Navigation Pak? My wife wants to upgrade her old Palm unit, but would also use the GPS capabilities in the car. I know it's not a full computer, or dedicated GPS, but it may just solve several of her problems for a reasonable amount of money.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

What about Apple's iPod/GPS/PDA/Cell/Wi-Fi/Handheld-Computer solution?! For $149, it's a no brainer! And the OS is open-source too!

As soon as it's available, I'll be there. But remember, this is Apple. It'll be a lot more than $149. And it will just work, like you expect it to.

I don't use that specific setup since I have a Windows Mobile device, but the general idea works very well. I have http://www.semsons.com/im3btgpssiiw.html setup with my Sprint PPC-6700 phone and use it on every trip. The Tom Tom software gets very good reviews, however. She'll like it.
