From the number of posts in this forum there would appear to be little interest in using hand held devices when flying!!!!!!??????

Since writing the original articles for this website some years ago there has been limited development in software but certainly some more convenient hardware with more sensitive antennae, brighter screens and battery packs.

I am still using Memory-map vs4.0 with UK CAA maps and downloaded aeroplanner.com 1m charts for the rest of the world.
The Pocket FMS package, with more extensive aviation data is also now extremely viable with worldwide maps available at differing magnification, if you subscribe.

As far as hardware is concerned I have now adopted the Ipaq rx5935 with inbuilt GPS and, finally, installed MM (DON'T USE Sirf) on COM7, 9600baud.
For longer flights the very neat i-UP3600 (GPS for less) battery pack provides for the extra power with good connectivity and reliable 5v output.

Would any aviators/ GPS fans please communicate with ideas, developments and experiences.

Thanks
