Using Nokia Navigator for GPS
Is the Nokia Navigator sufficient as a GPS for a ride from LA to Argentina? My friend has one and it's very good for getting around town but everyone seems to use Garmin for their rides, how come? I am considering purchasing one as I believe it would be a good way to travel a bit lighter, maybe use a car charger to charge it off the bike battery too (is it hard to hook up a 12v cigarette lighter?).
The other model I was considering is a bit more, it's the N82 which boasts a 5MP camera, how do these stack up against a standalone digital camera for about $300AUD/$280USD ?
Also am I likely to make it across Central/South America carrying my eeepc, mobile phone and ipod without it being stolen? Anyone have some tips & tricks where to hide your stuff when booked into a hostel / hotel? I'm especially worried about staying in dorms
