OQO Announces New GPS Accessory

OQO is announcing support for one of the most frequently requested accessories for the OQO Model 02, a GPS attachment. The Garmin Mobile PC is a very small USB based GPS unit that includes route planning and turn-by-turn spoken instructions, just like dedicated GPS units. I’ll be trying this out over the next few days and I’ll let you know how it works.

Not a lot of details yet. It comes with the GPS unit, suction cups to mount it, and a DVD to install the software. Looks really straightforward. I have a nice dedicated GPS unit, the TomTom GO 720, so it will be interesting to compare how well they route and speak.


The Garmin Mobile PC MSRP is $99.99. It’s not up on OQO’s site yet but should be shortly. OQO’s site is now listing this.

What kinds of questions do you have about the GPS unit as I play with it?
