Alphabet soup – AIO’s, CE and GPS

In case you’ve been seeing it in reference to GPS receivers and are wondering, AIO stands for all in one. In my last waypoints collection of shorts, I mentioned a new Pioneer GPS receiver that runs Windows CE. Now you may be wondering why you would want Windows CE on your GPS.  Today, GpsPasSion fills in the details:

While they have yet to break through in the US, WinCE based AIOs are selling like hot cakes in Europe, likely because they do the job and have the added bonus of letting you install many different applications once they’ve been "customized".

They go on to discuss some other interesting hacks:

Forum member PsiDOC has posted guides on how to (legally) install GPS favorites, TomTom and OziCE on a Packard Bell GPS400 or other AIOs.

I should add that the GpsPasSion post title mentions customizing Magellan and Mio receivers too.
