New Zealand GPS software / maps

Can anyone suggest GPS software for my 6515 that has New Zealand maps? Something with similar functionality to TomTom would be great. Or if someone knows how I can get a NZ map onto TomTom. I wish TomTom would come out with NZ map!!
Thanks for any help

Randomly Turning Off

I was wanting to see if anyone has had problems with this phone just turning itself off. It will just power off and I have to remove the battery to restart it, which takes forever. At first, I thought that the battery compartment cover was just coming loose but, I have sat there and had the phone on a table and watched it turn off. Is there any kind of software upgrade that fixes this? Thanks

GPS works in US AND Europe?

Has anybody travelled between the two continents to see if the GPS application works? I am about to be travelling for work and will be in the EU for fashion week, and driving around from show to show on a tight schedule as one would imagine is tough.

I know Microsoft Pocket Streets has some EU maps, so in THEORY it is possible from the software-side, but what about realtime?

WiFi and billing questions

Does the 6515 (Cingular) have built in WiFi or do you need to buy an external card?

If I don't buy the "data package" and browes via WiFi, will Cingular count that type of browsing as KBs and charge me?

Is there a way to disable browsing through the Cingualar network?

HP IPAQ 6510 or HP 8125?

I just got a BB 8700 (Cingular) and I am really wanting three more things that BB doesn't offer. In order: Voicedialing through bluetooth, the ability to stream and play 30-60 sec. quicktime movies (and ideally listen to in stereo) GPS (built in) and a decent camera. I would also like really good wifi/internet browsing.

My main use is business travel so if I had to go on I diet and stay with BB I would only because of the most important stuff:

1 - LOUD and great phone quality
2 - push (or very fast) email
3 - sync with my Ibook MAC

I do like the one hand use of BB. It doesnt have many of the bells, but does emailing well, great phone and navigation. What's missing most for me is the bluetooth voicecontrol. I call on many cont...

Can someone please explain this phones capabilities?

Hi, Although I am very computer-literate with PCs and Windows, I have no clue what this phone is capable of. I am thinking of purchasing one, but what type of applications can it handle? Can it hold Microsoft Word for typing documents, or can any other Windows software be loaded onto it? And if so, what are it's limitations on size of software that can be loaded onto it?

Thank you.

Bluetooth Headset Reccomendations?

Any recommendations on blue-tooth headsets for the iPaq? Been shopping around and read a lot of complaints of certain headsets not working with the treo650 and wondered if iPaqs had similar issues....

I don't own the 6510/6515 but am planning on the 6940 when it comes out.

need help with the expansion cards please

1. I have just purchased an iPAQ 6515 from Cingular and I plan to buy a 2Gb miniSD card.
Please let me know if it is compatible with the PDA because I don’t want to end up with an expensive and useless toy.

2. I tried to use a 2 Gb SD card and it seems that it doesn’t "see" it.
The card works in other devices.
I did soft and hard resets to no avail.
When I insert the SD card it says that it needs to be formatted to make it readable.I hit OK and then says that the formatting was successful but still I can not see the card.
Then I formatted the card on a PC but the problem persists. Don't know what else to try.
I don't want to end up returnig it because I like it.

Thank you
