Your impression regarding the XDA II is wrong.
Thanks to TOWA Bluetooth GPS does work. Its just that Microsoft is trying to impose a different Bluetooth architecture than that HP has been using with the IPAQ (they've done it before and they'll do it again). :wink:
As I said above, I've been using the SanDisk WiFi-card on my XDA II since day 1 when I got the device. I've used in at home with my wireless router, in the office through an access point and in the hotspot at Starbucks.
Only problems I've had sofar were in one network that was using a D-Link access point, where I couldn't get in - on the other hand also my PC had problems with this network).
When you insert the card that LED on it should start flashing. If it doesn't turn solid green(yellow) after a few minutes, the network is not connecting. You can check this through the applet on the task bar (Wireless network status). If it says searching it hasn't found or connected to your network. In this case go to Settings->Connections-->Connections->Extended->Networkcard. Ith should list the available networks. Select your network and select Connect on the options popup-menu. If you have encryption enabled it will ask you for the paramters (I've had to got through this procedure a couple of times when I put in a wrong code on the initial setup).
If the LED is solid green then you have connected to the network. If PIE doesn't work check the IP-settings again using that applet on the task bar (Wireless Network Status).
ANd I'm sure that Bluetooth Car Kit will be working soon also. But then again, the XDA doesn't have (andd never promised) Voice Dialing anyway. :?
