crappy 3d mapking software included, all maps are outdated. if you want newer map, you have to buy again. support is bad. phone hangs up a lot. been bringing the phone to dealer almost every month. problems encountered, (1) notification for all appointments doesn't pop up anymore, (2) if you try to install other 3rd party programs, the phone hangs, (3)the joystick gets sticky and gets stuck often when you press/toggle it up (4) GPS hangs or doesn't get signal sometimes - no data stream (5) last time i sent to dealer, they had to send it to HP service center for board replacement. after a few days, the appointment notification doesn't pop-up anymore. i give up. phone is crappy, crappy, crappy! i wish i didn't buy this phone. FAIR WARNING TO ALL POTENTIAL BUYERS, DON'T EVEN CONSIDER BUYING THIS PHONE OR YOU WILL JUST LOSE MONEY!
Cooool...yesterday I just checked the real hw6915 from the shop...ah, really looks great. It has a very proffesional, and a sexy look. it's a must ve gadget. I wanted to try it though, but I couldn't...so I just had an outside look of the phone. I still don know how it performs.
Can any one tell me more about the screen resolution and the aquare display. Any one been able to put third party applications? How about Destinator,anybody tried it?
I wanna buy hp hw6915, because of the gps capability it has. I will be using it mainly for flying and driving. I love a device with phone function and GPS as well, so i think this is the right tool.Is this a good device for the job?
Query about HP-iPAQ-6915/6965: Can we download and view PDF attachments over e-mail. Also, is it possible to send attachments (word, xl, ppt, pdf) through this phone?
Thank you in advance.
Question for readers, anyone know how I can get the built-in camera to work as webcam with Skype Mobile? I have installed Skype mobile software (works very well) but would appreciate any advice on how I can activate inbuilt camera to work with Skype. Have had my new iPaq for a month now, working exactly as HP says, a real pleasure to use daily although a high capacity (extended) battery is an absolute must(have ordered a 2500 mAh).
Anyone who can advise me how to solve the webcam issue, their help would be appraciated very much.
Thanks for reading this post.
Very very fragile and expensive screen! It fell from a tea table (barely 35cm height). I crack on the screen. HP service is very firm that it is user's fault, it is strictly out of varnty coverage. Result is 269USDplus VAT bill for the repair. One cannot help but think that the trick is to make money by replacing such a fragile and expensive screen. I used many other pdas so far . I dropped some too bun none so flimsy enough to break at a little more then a feet height.
Hi Carl, you can buy a destinator software and a free autorouting map at Satguide.com
I recently bought a 6915 and to my surprise after owning 2 O2s this 6915 PDA actually does what it says. Its fast, the camera is much better than the O2, BUT like anything i recomend not to load too many 3rd party apps.
You will start havving probs and software conflicts!!!
LOVE THIS PHONE
PS fantastic phone for hands free, impressed!
Have now used HP 6965 for 4 mths. Installed Voice Command--didnt quite work. Does anyone has this problem? I'm only keen to use the voice-dial function.Can anyone help?
It comes with built-in GPS. It can also connect to Bluetooth GPS. You cant insert a GPS module unless it goes into the mini SD slot
Cingular Premier sent me the HP 6925 after having numerous problems with the Blackjack I love it works perfectly with my 2GB card.
well i have bought hp 6955 n have carried it ti india i was wondering if anyone out there knows how i can get gps services in india
does anyone knows how to change the language from spanish to english on this hw6915? please!
I bought the ipaq6965 and I find it very interesting. I was amazed esp. with its GPS function it has voice & video navigator. When I downloaded the Manila Map it started automatically when I runnig my car along the road. For the support, HP is good and it has an online support as well. I like the unit of its professional look that's why my wife was asking me if I can give to her to switch her Sony Ericson K600i. I bought 1-spare battery of the same size because it drains quickly while using GPS for it has only 1200MAH cap.
no camera? no buy. but if you do put a camera on it then please mount two. one on its face and another in the rear so we can use it as a webcam. or an even cooler idea would be to put one on a swivel with some decent optics. a 3MP camera will do just fine
