Hello all:
I have a question concerning my PDA.
I obtained one the other day (Palm Vx)..price was right (free), and now I am trying to find something that it can do that my cell phone cannot do.
I know that there is tons of Palm Software out there but it seems like phones have replaced PDA's.
Any suggestions? I am a police officer and I am SURE there are applications out there that will make my life easier.
Thanks for any suggestions

I have been carrying one for years and couldnt do without it now.
Names, Phone numbers (Hundreds of them that I don't need to keep in my phone), addresses with groups of people listed under one company or city, for example, appointments (with reminder alarms), very few games, E-Book reader for when I an stuck somewhere waiting for somebody or something, etc.
I can look back in my calendar to see when something happened.
Only problem with carrying it is that it takes up the pocket that I would like to carry my P3AT in.:thumbsup:

Take up geocaching. I use my older Palm m515 for carrying the info while geocaching.

I used my Handspring when I was in Chicago last year as a gps and map. Made it pretty easy to find my way around the suburbs.
