icon_confused.gifI'm looking for opinions from those of you that use your PPC connected to your GPSR and track your movments as you would if you were using mapsource and a laptop with the GPSR connected to it.


icon_rolleyes.gifMy Goal is to connect my GPSmap76 or Vista to my ipaq 3955. I don't know which mapping software to use that offers me the most features.

My PDA is too valuable and expensive for me to be handling it when in the woods looking for a cache. So it stays in my backpack. It comes out when I need to take notes or lookup caches descriptions. I carry the legend in hand because I can drop it, get it wet, etc and not worry about it. However to answer your question. I use a gps mouse that stays in my vehicle that I hook my PDA upto for driving to caches and mapping/navigation. I like Mapoppolis. The mapping software is subjective and others will have their favorites. You can get a cable from these people to connect your vista to the iPaq

As you do, I keep it in my backpack while hiking...my reasons are for driving directions only....I upload all GPSR data to the desktop into Mapsource and/or ExpertGPX.

Thanks for your suggestions ..I'll look at them...

Another feature I was hoping to find woyld be autorouting and voice prompts built into the mapping software.


Thanks ......Bob
