'I' phones

I'm thinking of changing to an I phone and just wondered if anyone knows of ballistic software that could be used on them ? and any experience you've had using them for ballistic purposes ?

Cheers,Russ

I've thought about that too, but am not aware of the software. My hangup is the fact that there is not a field replaceable battery. Not going to take something so crucial in the woods for days at a time that I use a spare battery for. Nice gadgets though.

Me three. I never thought I'd like the IPhone, but honestly, it is the best cell phone I've used.

I've wondered about ballistic software that would run on it also.

Re: 'I' phones

good point about the batterys, I never go into the field without a milldot master and all my charts for the load i'm using anyway . basically if any or all of my battery kit fails then I'm still able to hunt ! Think I may go with a dedicated pda after all .

The older phones ate batteries quickly! My son's phone will kill the battery in a day even if he does not use it. It is under warranty and he is scheduled for a replacement.

My IPhone 3G regularly goes 3 days between charges, under normal use. (I don't run videos and games much, and I only use it as an IPod when in the car.).

Hunting, I would expect to only turn it on when I needed to use the program, so it should go days and days without problems.
