Gerald Perry, designer of Exbal (which to my understanding is what Nightforce uses) is very clear in reccomending the use of a Pocket PC based PDA and not a Palm based PDA. You can get 'em off ebay pretty cheap used. You don't need the newest 'rocket' to run Exbal. For what it's worth, I'm using a Dell Axim X30, but the options are nearly endless. Hope this helps. Email Gerald from his site--http://www.perry-systems.com/

PDA for Dummies could come in handy here.

Could you tell me what is the difference between the Axim x5, x30, x50 etc.? Would they all work just as well for Exbal?

I think the higher the number the faster and more sophisticated the device. I think Gerald told me he uses the X50. The glitch with using Dell Pocket PC's (PPC) is that appartently Dell and Microsoft has a bit of a spitting match some time ago and Dell doesn't make PPC's anymore. Mine were way out of warranty and Dell still helped me quite a bit initially getting mine set up, etc. Talk to Gerald, but I think any of those should run Exbal fine--although each has a different operating system, I believe. Should probably try to get the newest operating system (newest PPC) you can. I had a Palm (Palm OS has literally not been updated for years and is one reason Gerald didn't like them.) beforehand and I don't think I would go back to Palm after having the Pocket PC. Not very experienced with all this and no expert, just relating some of my experience. Hope it helps. Jon

I just went on ebay and got a used 1910 HP pocket PC. Cost about $ 50 buck and I was off and racing. You don't need a fancy one . Spend your cash on your shooter. Just make sure you buy one with enough inbuilt memory, I think 32 meg ??

Cheers

On Monday February 7th, 2005, I received an email from Mr. Perry answering some of my questions and Here is a quote of what he answered about Axim PDA's

You can order Exbal by logging onto the web site and the clicking on the "Order Exbal" button.
For hand held applications, I recommend the Dell Axim which use the Pocket PC version of Exbal.
All of the Axims will work fine.
thanks,
