PDA Room

Recommended Posts

I asked Jeremy the other day if he thought it would be prudent to start a PDA room in the Forums. I feel like it's a very popular topic, and uniquely different than any of the other rooms available (closest would be GPS Hardware, but I think that's more suited for just full GPS handheld units).

 

Anyway, he felt that there were getting to be too many rooms on the site, but he did think it was an interesting thought.

 

I feel that there is a very different aspect to geocaching when PDAs are utilized.

 

Anyone else interested in supporting this idea?

 

Please vote only if you use a PDA or are interested. I can see it now... 100 "NO" votes "I don't use a PDA"....

Personally, if I didn't use a PDA and wasn't interested in them, I think I'd vote "yes" just to get the interminable PDA threads out of the general fora and the software/hardware forum.

 

As it is, of course, I do geocache with a PDA so I still answered "yes."

Can you make the questions "Yes" "No" and "No comment?"

 

It seems they fit within the GPS Units and software section. I'm not sure it requires its own section.

I consider my PDA as a memory upgrade for me. I am beginning to suffer from CRS and it takes care of all that stuff so I don't have to.

 

I love the idea of a PDA room, but I can't remember why icon_confused.gif

The main reason I brought it up is because I have found that discussions about PDA software is uniquely different than PC software, but close enough to be confusing. In addition, I feel that from a hardware standpoint, cabling, accessories, etc., are uniquely different than the basic hardware out there.

 

I'd also like to suggest a change to the GPS & Ham Radio room to omit the word "Ham" so that it is inclusive of FRS, GMRS & CB radios.

 

Any thoughts?

I would wonder just how much it would get used, but it would be nice to have nonetheless... Maybe just add it to the GPS forum: GPS/PDA?

 

I love mine (Sony NR70V). It is my second brain (and sometime my first) and I don't know how I got along without a PDA... I keep my MP3's on it, Update my caches with it, maintain my Quicken accounts with it, use it to turn on my TV, take pictures of geocaching stuff with it... you name it. AND I've been into these things less than a year!

 

As soon as they Release the GPS Memory Stick in the 'States I will get one ASAP.

 

Now if I could only get textbook makers to offer a Palm Reader version of their books...
