I have a phone connection for my helmet speakers and I usually won't answer it when I'm out. One of the reasons I ride is to get away from people like you

I used to be a Palm freak, until the LCD decided to go down the drain, after using a Windows CE unit like compaq or HP Ipaq I would never go back to Palm. The windows CE units have so much more capeabilities, expansion, and options.

i dont really see the point of a palm anything. you either have to be in a hot spot or have a blue tooth phone to access the net. but i will say that if ur thinking about getting an ipod this would be a better investment. 4GB is way more music than u will ever listen to on a ride. plus u get all the other features.

Plenty of unsecure WiFi connections to be found. Looking for easy mobile internet connection
1GB ipod shuffle also has more music than you will listen to on ride
