If it works, say thanks to Dave King. I have used the program out to 400 yards and find it very good.

Re: Smart phones and ballistics programs

What's wrong with the Palm version of Exbal? I just bought a Zire22. It's small and cheap. I only plan to do one thing with it and that is run balistic software on it. I already have pssf on it and it works fine. I'm still saving up for Exbal. I am a cell phone tech and one thing for sure is the less things you do with your cell the better off you will be when you really will need to make a call. The plain ones never have trouble.

So, I am in the process of doing the samething with getting a smart phone because I am sick and tired of grabbing my PDA and it being dead. I just do not use it enough to keep the batteries charged but then they are not charged when I go shooting.

Did anyone ever get the pocket PC version of Perry's to work on a smart phone?

SES50, I've bought a PN820 Smart Phone to run the pocket pc nightforce exbal on, with no success. Mr. Perry told me the same as OSO stated previously. Guess I should have checked before. It sure would have been nice... -- Don

I have a UTstarcom smartphone that runs exbal perfectly. I do not know what other smartphones will run it.

If anyone else is using a more durable phone that will function exbal please let me know.

The UTstarcom is okay but I keep lying down on it when shooting prone. I have crushed it twice causing the mouse type pointing tool to stick. May work better for a skinny fellow or for someone smart enough not to carry it in thier front pants pocket.

Friday evening I went to best buy and bought a 1G mirco sd card and loaded the nightforce/exbal software on it. Today I went to the AT&T store and put the SD card into a couple of different phones.

Moto Q with Microsoft Mobile 6 OS - Error, did not run.

Sansung BlackJack with Microsoft Mobile 5 Edition OS - Two of these phones we could not even see the program .exe file in the file manager.

Palm Treo 750 with Microsoft Mobile 5.0 with MSFP OS - Opened and I was able to run the program. Was not able to see if numbers that were being spit out were correct but I was able to get the program to run.

I guess I am going to go get a Palm Treo 750 tomorrow night. Hope this helps you guys out as much as it will help me.
