sorry to hear about that! it definitely sucks. :cry:
in the meantime, you may want to look at some of the nice carrying cases you can get to keep your stuff with you at all times. I use The Pod by Roadwired.
Keep in mind I wrote that review before I got my iPaq, which now takes the slot my Magellan GPS held. Now I need to figure out how to re-work the bag to hold it all, or get PodZilla.
