You can't get a waterproof pocket pc. If it rains just throw it in your pocket or something. Don't fret so much. I got the dell axim w/ the nightforce software and works like a charm.

Re: Nightforce ballistic software

I also have an x51 Axim. I used it for all of my hunting this year (mountains and plains) and it worked great.
I used a waterproof dustproof container that plastic window so I could use it protected if needed. Any pocket PC will work, but I got a Dell because Gerald told me that is what he has.
The only difference between the NF version and regular Exbal is the NF version only has the NF reticles in it while the standard version has other brands + NF.

Re: Nightforce ballistic software

Thanks fore your help.
But what i would like to know if some one has put ballisitic software on garmin GPS or magellan gps. This way i don't have to carry more than one plus it would be water proof and more rugged.

New Shooter

I believe some of the new high end PDAs can do both.

Here is one that most likely would work being as it is Windows Mobile software operating system like the Axim 30/50/51.

Pharos Traveler GPS 525+: A Windows Mobile 5 Pocket GPS with WiFi and Bluetooth

I may be mistaken but I believe it is possible to load the Pharos GPS software into the Axims.

I know a lot of the new cell phones are GPS enabled.


I did a little more research and Dell itself actually sells the little plug-in Pharos GPS gizmo for the Axim X51

I can add a gps program to my palm tungesten. However its power requirements and the rechargeable battery are not that great. I carry both, and use the palm only for balistics and a little bit of solitare.
