If you plan to do any off-trail adventures, I'd definitely recommend just spending the money on a GPS unit instead of attachments for your PDA. Since most PDAs run around $300, and the attachments cost more bucks ($300 for geodiscovery, I believe), you're walking around with some pretty expensive gear. When you're out there wading through a stream or climbing a mountain I wouldn't want to have that kind of stress. A much durable Garmin or Magellan GPS unit makes more sense.
I dropped my Palm once and broke the thing. Definitely not for outdoors use.

The handygps is a decent unit, but I would recommend holding out for the gps module that Geodiscovery is building for the Visor. (www.geodiscovery.com)
