please stay away, from windows pda. are peace of junk... the baterries life is half, and lots of crashes.

if you decide to get a pda just for hunting, then go under $50.00, because in case of broking, lost, damage the unit, you will not feel the pain.
in hunting situation, my self personally, i brocked 2 unit displayes, just laind down to take the shot on some rocks. the unit was on the chest pocket, and i just laid down, cracking the display.
this happend to me.

Re: I need a PDA

well thanks for all the help guys but I am no closer to getting one than I was before.

I might have forgot to mention I know nothing about electronics and I guess I need to know what you guys use by name.

Re: I need a PDA

Well I don't know what I'm doing either, but I can tell you I'm currently looking for a Dell Axim X51V model PPC (which I think stands for personal pocket computer). It will run MS Windows (moble 5.0) and I am familiar with the windows operating system, so that's why I'm going with personal pocket computer rather than a cell phone.

I feel for you since I'm in the same situation. I've read all the posts here and I still haven't read a single one that provides much instruction for us types that have never used a PDA before, either PPC or Cell Phone.

Man I here that I got no clue what Im doing. I guess all I was looking for is someone that knows more than me to say hay go on ebay get a nice used BRAND X for 50 bucks or so that will run exbal just fine for you but I have not got that responce yet and I dont have 1600 bucks to spend on one of those super wiz bang jobs some of the guys around here are toting.

If I do figure it out you will be the first guy I tell how I did it.

Re: I need a PDA

Stay with the Palm operating system.
Go to ebay or craigslist and buy a Palm Tungston or Zire any model. You should be able to find one for under 50 bucks.
I bought a Palm Zire Z22 for $35.00 and it works very well for exbal. Don't buy a fancy one. Get a cheap basic model and you won't have problems. If you get the fancy unit you have a bunch of programs to wade through.
