thing has lived on my belt for about a month and I havenít had any problem yet.
I am however concerned with the swivel clip that is included. The Stud that is
on the case is made from a plastic, and while I havenít had any problems with
it, I am leery of it.
Basecamp is non-PDA specific, so it can fit just about anything, within reason;
my iPAQ with PC card sleeve fits nicely in this case - and if that monstrosity
will fit - anything can. Iím reasonably confident that most of the
springboards currently available will fit in this case, but Iíd check your
arrangement against the measurements provided by GrinderGear just to be on the
While the Basecamp can probably handle any springboard that is inserted into the Visor, there is very little extra room in the case for
springboards that arenít attached to the Visor.
You might be able
to fit one or two standard sized modules in the forward compartment, but it would be a squeeze.
The PDA is stored in the back of the basecamp within a very padded
compartment. The compartment opens at the top, where the PDA slides in and out.
I it is a little hard to remove the PDA from the case at times, but
maybe the case will stretch out and this will
become a non-issue.
In addition to the PDA compartment there are two other
compartments for accessories, there is a small zipper compartment in front of
the PDA compartment that could house some keys, maybe a few bills, and possibly
a credit card. There is also a mesh pouch on the front of the case I tend to
clip a pen or two here, but a few small things could easily fit here. All of
these compartments combine to make a case that is rather large, not
unmanageable, but it is defiantly bulky. Unfortunately there is no room to put
the Targus Stowaway Keyboard that often travels with me, so this one has had to
remain in my pocket.
