In phone conversations with Gerald Perry of Perry Systems ( Perry-Systems - Ballistic Calculator Software ) make of Exbal, which is the Nightforce ballistic software as well, he reccomends the use of a pocket pc (PPC) for his program in the field. Some guys here use PPC's for Exbal and some use Palm based devices. Gerald has Exbal for either, but reccomends the use of PPCs.

I run exbal on my smartphone, works great! Some pda's will delete programs/files when the battery dies, but my phone doesn't! Plus I can look around on LRH from work

I run EXBAL on a Dell AXIM X5. Works great! I got my NEW X5 on e-bay for $41.

The complete package comes in Patagonia Ballistics 3.0, updates are no sweat and easy when new info is needed or a new function is added. The tech support is unmatched and the program in my opinion is unmatched. Functions are very intuitive yet you have the ability to do some very awesome stuff, the library is very good also. Multiple wind zones, multiple tracks and targets the list of things you can do is unbelievable. There are quit a few users on this site that could answer questions much better. I'm running a Dell Axim X51.
