    Hi,

    Thinking about taking up this sport!

    Currently have iPAQ 6340 with TomTom5. This is great for car navigation, but I don't think it will be any good for geocacheing!

    What do the team think are the best PPC apps to use with my existing hardware? I wondered about the FUGAWI product, based on OS maps?

    Regards,

    William

    Memory Map for mapping and GPS Dash for emulating a dedicated GPSr.
    Enjoy your caching!

    Plus GPX sonar for carrying cache data with you and SpoilerSync for scraping spoiler pictures and carrying them on your PPC.

    I believe that you can use GPS dash but have not tried it myself. I think the general consensus is that a dedicated GPSr is the best option for hunting the boxes. But there's no reason not to have a go with GPS dash and see what you think.

    GPSr's are available from about 40 now!

    Good luck with your first hunt...let us know how you get on.

    Thanks, Guys.

    I've had a look at memory map's website. The latest version seems to do at least some of the things gps dash does and I wonder if it would do on its own? Surely just scrolling map position is all that's needed from this package - not interested in rates of climb etc!

    The GPX sonar site rather loses me - I think I'll have to give it a go before I understand what it's trying to do.

    Regards,

    William
