Re: Pocket PDA

Nightforce is selling a new all weather system called the TDS Recon and TDS Nomad that looks pretty good. The TDS Recon is $900.00 and the TDS Recon is quite a bit higher but I don't remember how much higher. It has a lot more memory capacity and it has a built in GPS. The same device is used in the industry that I work in and it's very robust.

I use a Dell Axim 50. There's a newer version out there. I put a different (larger) battery in it (works great) and run LoadBase 3.0 on it.

Get on ebay and get a Dell Axim X50 to V51v. These seem to work well.

Re: Pocket PDA

This item is driving me crazy to buy. Go to e-bay for the dell and get out bid by a $1.00 everytime. Hate to spend the money for the recon. What would be the big advantage of the recon if i was only using it for ballistic software purpose.

Try your local craigslist, that is where I bought my Dell X50v from. At least you can see it work in person.
