I have a Palm Tungsten E. I love it. I've installed GedStar Pro and I have
all my TMG info at my fingertips, if I don't want to carry my laptop around.
I have about 6,000 people in my data set and there is more than enough
memory for all I have (including other programs like Splashshopper, my
Outlook calendar and appointments, my contacts from Outlook, etc. The
Tungsten E is reasonable in price and is very easy to read and navigate in.
BTW, my hubby got me a separate GPS unit for my birthday a couple of weeks
ago. It's a Magellan Explorist 200. I didn't want the GPS capability on my
Palm. I wanted something separate. That ran us about $130.00 at Costco.

Subject: [TMG] PDA and software recommendation needed
Okay, I finally have my husband talked into getting me a PDA but I need to
strike while the iron is hot so he doesn't get a chance to think about this
for too long!!!
So, any recommendations as to make, model, things to be sure it does?
It doesn't need GPS as he is getting a stand-alone GPS [my leverage for the
PDA]. I use TMG so need thoughts on what coordinates well with it.... what
software do I need to handle my genealogy stuff?
Is the address and note taking features that come with a PDA adequate? What
accessories should I have? Should I get one of those metal cases so it can
survive being dropped in my purse?
Thank for any thoughts or ideas!!!
