    Re: I need a PDA

    ICANHITHIMMAN, I bought two used Dell AXIM X50V 's off fleabay. Paid less than $150 for them about 6 months ago. I also bought a new extended life battery for $13. I put it in a rhino case ( aluminum case $21.) and carry it in my drag bag. I have the Night Force program and it runs it fine. I also put the program on the second one and leave it in the truck. That way if I am out of state on a hunting trip I have a back up for emergencies. I have never had the battery go down in the field, but I charge at night every few days. I also carry a small zipper pouch in my drag bag that has a spare battery for my rangefinder, the pda, and Kestrel. I have used this pda a bunch this season and have no complaints.

    Hope this helps.

    Jeff

    Thanks Broz, JAWS, & squirrelduster and others for sharing your experiences and suggestions. Now I've got a few solid options provided and I'll go with a PPC - primarily because I know MS Windows well and I might as well stick with an operating system I'm thoroughly familiar with. I'm still thinking Dell Axim X51V and I think a spare battery will be good insurance policy.

    Really appreciate you all chipping in with your advice!
