PDA selection help.

Ok, i need to buy a PDA as a present for someone, but I am totally lost as to which one to get. I need it by 10/08 so not much time to do the research.

So, it will be mostly used for nursing software. Don't really know what kind but I think that they will be in a form of databases and as I understand are Windows based.
Second use, a car GPS and maybe MP3. I know that you can buy an antenna and software for pretty much anything, but would like something that will play MP3 and then GPS would override voice to give directions.(Not even sure if such option exists.) Sound will be transmitted through one of these radio transmitters.

What would you guys recommend?

You really need to find out more about the nursing software. It's reasonably unlikely that just getting any Windows PDA will support what is needed.

This is problematic. I am getting it for my girlfriend and she really doesn't know all the software she will need. The ones she knows of are Windows based, therefore I assumed that the rest will be too. If I had more time I would find out all I need, but since she kept changing her gift idea I have to do it in a hurry. And since we've been together for 8 years and that's her 25th birthday I really can't issue a promissory note.

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

They also have a Treo 750 W which stands for Windows.

Just because her nursing software runs on a Windows PC, it doesn't mean it will run on Windows Mobile. They are different. I would check with her on that.

Blackberries are for squids.
