I am sucessfully using my Axim X51 with a Globalsat BT receiver to run TomTom but want to be able to use it in the same way as a handheld GPS.

I want to have it as a backup when sailing and to be able to enter a destination co-ordinate or waypoint and then see the bearing and range along with the Course over Ground and Speed over Ground. I do not need charts, etc but want to be able to use it in the same way as a basic eTrex or GPS60.

Is there any software out there for PDAs running on WM5?

Have a look at:-

It may meet our requirements!!

Personally I would go for a mapping system like Memory Map which provides all your 'Garmin' info plus a moving map display.

For sailing you will probably also need a battery supply for your PDA, such as i-UP 3600!!
