I have an Old HP Ipaq H2200 that I used to use before smart phones came around. So I have this device that is just burning a hole in my pocket. I already have a Windows Mobile Smart phone so I'm covered there.

Here are the limitations of the device:
Only can run 2gb of mem so a MP3 player is out.
Only can run branded HP WM2003ce so not cooked ROMs

What should I do with it? What can I do with it?

Paper Weight.

I have an old MIO, that works perfectly for it

I have 2 GPS' already :(. My phone has Garmin GPS software installed and I have Garmin stand-alone unit.

I'm really at a loss to what to use it for (besides a paperweight). Its even in a nice rugged aluminum case. Maybe I could install some kinda of Ballistic software but what will even run on it? If I can't find a use I might as well give it to one of my kids and let them play games on it.

Ballistic software should work. I have an ipaq setup as a remote control and ballistic computer.

You should be able to put Linux on it. It boots of the flash card.

it really depends on what kind of geek (if any) you are...

If you're the type that digs through a box of broken/discarded electronics, harvesting components for a project, then I can think of all sorts of things you can do with it.

If you're not that type though, honestly you should probably just e-waste it (or give it to a geek of the previously mentioned type). Otherwise, it's just going to sit around getting more and more obsolete...
