[GeoStL] Re: PDA for paperless caching

I would stay away from old and look at maybe a Zire. You can get one, brand 
new, for around 100.00. The thing about an old Palm is that it just doesn't 
have the memory. When you get a pocket query of 250 caches, you are looking 
at about 750K for the file. Old Palms tend to run out of memory pretty 
quick. A Zire 31 can be found on Ebay or Amazon for around 99.00 or so. They 
have 14 meg of usable memory and they are color. Then you can load all the 
supporting apps such as Plucker, Geocalc, etc...

Of course this is just my opinion. Some others will offer other solutions.

Subject: [GeoStL] PDA for paperless caching


-
I am just now looking into getting a PDA for paperless caching, but don't 
want to spend alot of dinero for one.  I am clueless to all the hi-tech 
talking, too, when it comes to electronics.  Is there anyone who is low tech 
like me that has gone paperless?  I have read numerous times that an old 
PDA, maybe from ebay, like a Palm III would be just fine.  Anyone have 
advice?  I am just learning to work with GSAK too so I would appreciate the 
help.  Thanks! :D Sue
