  1. PocketPC uses GPXSonar. Get the unlimited wireless internet, you can check for caches on the go.




    Oh, never mind.  I just checked the net to see what the IPAQ was.  For what we're going to use this for, the Palms are expensive enough.

    I have both and would recommend an older Palm if the primary use is Geocaching. You can get them cheap (under $100). The battery life of the Palms are much better than the Ipaq's. I like the Ipaqs overall the best because I have SOOO many things I can run on them. Ipaqs are costly though if you fall and break it. (Sorry to bring it up, Flagman :rolleyes: )


    I think I have the Palm 5vx. I works great and it is replaceable. If you want an Ipaq for geocaching, buy the 3800 or 3700 models for around $100 from ebay. HP sells an upgrade for the latest pocketpc for $25.00.


    Anyway, just make sure you have memory to hold the cache information and their logs. The most relevant piece is knowing what you will use it for.


    Good luck!



    i have an Ipaq 1495 that works great for caching and keeping track of dates...it also plays mp3 files...that how we did the podcache in balboa park..had to put in a sd card to hold the file. the ipaq 1495 has 64mb of memory and has a slot for an sd card.

    I apologize for being tardy in this thread. Congrats out to those who well deserved it. Keep on Caching.

  3. Ok folks, I'm flipping a coin. Which is the better one to get - a Palm Tungsten E2 or a Palm Zire 72? Pros? Cons? Is there something better that a person can get locally that is better? For about the same price, of course.


    Ease of use

    Able to see in the bright sunlight

    Can do everything that a cacher wants it to do, with room to grow

    Speed (or is there much difference between units?)


    neither...get a pocket pc....IPAQ rules....

  4. I used two threads for the ca geocoins. one was development and the second was get your orders in. when i started the ca geocoin...there wasn't a bunch of coins out there and people pre ordering like crazy. currently i have a pdf file posted on the web that i update with the paid up people and i also send out an email to the list

  5. Roger Miller and AC/DC on the same cd? Now there's an interesting combo Steve!  :unsure:

    Eclectic i believe the word is....and how bout the bear went over the mountain? going on a lion hunt? The Lion Sleeps Tonight?

  6. Perhaps it would be worth mentioning that these coins have been selling for $15.00 on ebay. The fools don´t know they can get them for less than $5.00 here :unsure:

    quite interesting isn't it? I have a matching pair of 2004 and 2005 ca geocoins that i plan to put on ebay just for fun....they are below 30 in the numbering.


    Updated the paid list...




    Only 100 left...finally! I will be done with this.

    Ah but two hours of pushin' broom buys and eight by twelve four-bit room
