Haicom 305-III

3. Installation

The installation process for Haicom 305-III differs depending on which interface connection you choose. In our case, (Dell Axim x50V with Windows Mobile 2003 SE), the installation process was very easy, just plug the device into the CF slot and... a popup window prompts you to type a name for the 305III GPS receiver. We also noticed the following happens every time the device shuts down or you simply remove the 305III receiver...

The 305III was recognized without a hitch, as an Apacer 2GB SD card. As the device driver indicates, you cannot hot-swap SD cards, which is rather inconvenient. We are not very sure if this drive will work well under WM5, or if the device is supported at all...
