I think I'm going to be picking up a Palm TX this weekend. I'm looking for software recommendations, site links, emulators, and anything that is out of the standard uses.
Any cool tricks and tips will be appreciated.

Some things to do when bored, wardriving or whatever they call it when using a PDA (especially if you have the GPS too), and bluejacking.

Get one with a built in GPS, trust me, you'll use it time and time again...

I already have a GPS though. I'm pretty set on the TX. It got great reviews and I got to play with one in Best Buy. I just want to do some other cool stuff on it.
It's going to be a good weekend. Heading down to Charlotte, NC to go pick up a Mac Mini for my girl friend, then over to Best Buy to pick up a TX.

see there is a ton of software like mapping for the GPS reciever on a PDA, pocketmaps is a good example... Trust me, you'll want the built in GPS antenna that most providers have... In fact, when i buy a new one it'll have one...

Most GPS/PDA combos are windows based which I don't want. My GPS does everything I need it to and more. Plus, once I connect it to my computer, there is unlimited potential with my GIS software. The TX is $300. Definitely can't beat it for the money. My GPS was $400 alone, so I'm not really about to replace it.

So doesn't anyone know of some great sites for PDA hacks?

So you're looking for a non windows based PDA solution? have fun...

Myself I'm going with the Dell Axim X5 (or so) wiht the GPS reciever and a 1gb sandisk card...

Well, we can forget this topic. I bought a Nintendo DS instead.

I would strongly recomend the axim x30 (ebay) or the Axim X51v Handheld( direct from dell for only $499 - auto 35% off = $324 w/ free shipping. )
Although palm is a little more clean and compact, there are so manny more programs for the ppc, and better user forms.

haha, yea. I was debating the PSP myself. Since they were out of the Giga pack, it make the DS a little easier to part. Plus, games are cheaper for the DS.
