      Googling around, it looks like the 210 is about 2 years newer (2008) than my hw6945, and runs Windows Mobile 6 (mine is WinMo 5).  No keyboard or Cell connectivity, but my guess is that it would run APRSISCE just fine.  The review I read (http://www.mobiletechreview.com/HP-iPAQ-210.htm) says that there's a CF slot where you can attach a GPS(!).  Not sure what they are thinking.  I do not see any mention of a serial port, however, just USB.  Confirmed elsewhere.

It does have a serial port, and USB, on the sync connector, and they have a rather thick cable that breaks out the connections. I have used it with my Kenwood D7, and it worked just fine. But the thickness of the cable kind of killed its usefulness. If I were to use it frequently, I'd rig up something via Bluetooth.

          I dont think you can update to 6.5 now as microsoft sent all windows mobile users emails to say that earlier this year they stopped supporting this version. I have a HTC phone running windows mobile 6.5 and got quite a few email messages warning me about 6 months in advance of it all being discontinued. Maybe try the manufactures site direct for an update of the os there as i know htc have done this and its still available.

              http://www.socketserial.com/product.htm Second one down the left side.  Worked really well until I left the e750 in a loaner car that was subsequently found by the dealer and set aside in an insecure location only to have it sprout legs and walk away before I could get back to pick it up.  The dealer made it right buy funding a replacement which became an AT&T Tilt which is still functioning.  Needless to say, I make sure I a) don't put much in loaner cars and b) clean them out before returning them.

              Message 6 of 11 , Sep 2, 2012
                From the manual for the iPAQ 110:

                Processor Marvell® PXA 310
                Operating System Microsoft® Windows Mobile 6.0
                Memory 256 MB Flash & 64 MB SDRAM

                If you need more info, let me know.

                The 100 series and 200 series were the last versions of iPAQ's to be produced.  They were similar, but the 200 series was a bit more expensive, so I suspect it has more features.  Somewhere I have links to some pretty detailed history of the iPAQ back to the beginning.  Wikipedia is a good place to start.  It is a very confusing history.

                I have flawlessly been able to utilize most every development version from the very early days of APRSISCE.  Only problem I have encountered was mentioned in an earlier message, it does not appear to be able to utilize 2 Bluetooth serial devices, even if those devices use different serial ports.  It does have a USB serial port, but I do not believe it can host other devices such as USB GPS.  It appears to only be useful for syncing to a PC.

                The CF serial card looks like an option.  Thank you for bringing it up.  A TT4 with the Byonics BT option and a serial GPS attached to it might also be a good option.
