Ok, as soon as I got mine (48 hours ago) I began to notice issues.

1) the thumb button seems to get stuck. not like it is visible or not, it seems it causes the menus to keep scrolling non-stop. simply hit the button, but it is annoying.

2) NO BATTERY LIFE Two hours after removing from the power cable, it is down to 90% battery. I plan on buying the extended life battery. Just lke the iPod. do nothing and the iPod lasts for 14 hours of play. Frequently change songs? 3-4 hour life span.

HP provides a program:

HP IPAQ Quick GPS Connection

This application downloads timely data about the GPS satellites that enables your GPS to find your location faster. I get my location on Pocket Streets within a few seconds.
