Hi Im just about to get a PDA, Something ive been putting off for a long time as i havent been able to justify it (funny i dont normally have that problem :-D with toys n gadjets ).
But ive finally found enough reasons to go for one now looking at them im going for a Windows Pocket PC based model as they now have a massive capability compared to a couple of years ago.
In fact Im going for a O2 XDA2 which is a mobile phone and a PDA this has the same or better specs as most other PDAs but is half the price.
One of the first things i will put on it for out door use id memory map or similar closley followed by a blue tooth GPS receiver ( as mentioned in another topic in this section ) I really want to use this for logging Dives and dive sites but it will be great for tracking and marking Outdoor resourses etc .
With the modern storage capability (SD Cards up to 1GB ) a massive amount of data can be held many many volumes on out door stuff ie E books Do we have a list of Ebooks relating to Bush craft ??
The other thing is you can write your own as you ar in the field the XDA2 has an inbuilt camera used for Stills and Vidio clips etc so you can build up pictures on plants etc for sorting out later etc
Being a phone as well it can dial straight into the Web so giving access to unlimited info Even posting a question on here when you may need a quick answer like can i really eat this and if so how :shock:
Or a short vidio and voice over from when you where shown a technique back on the course and need a refesher when your trying it on your own.
So to recap
What Bush crafty E books or soft ware is out there
