Giving up the 12 year old PDA and getting with the times. Trying out a VX6700 from Verizon.. runs Windows Mobile 5.0. This thing does wonders for getting a procrasinator on track when your phone has your calendar/task list, email and the Internet ready to go.

Looking for PDA/mobile "friendly" web sites frequented by board members as well as programs you may use/find useful.

an example is ==> Weather Underground (Mobile)

things I'd like to do ..

fishing log
boat maintenance
GPS navigation
Weather report info.. anyone subscribe to the Weather channel mobile service?
TIDE/current I use the above, but please give me more if you have them :)

Worth a shot :bigfish:

Smartphone

fishcrazy

I've had a Smartphone for years. I bought the Motorola mpx200 a few years ago specifically to get thunderstorm information while I was out on the Bay. Moved up last year to the Motorola Q because of it's larger screen size. I searched all over trying to find decent web sites. I even contacted Topper Shutt at Channel 9 in DC to get some URL info on their weather radar capabilities. I want a radar shot directly over the north part of the bay with a 100 mile range. That gives enought time if I need to haul a$$ back to the dock to avoid a thunderstorm.

I recently changed computers and have misplaced my PDA favorites. I'll do some searching and hopefully send some sites your way.

You hit the nail on the head with the weather underground mobile site. That will give you almost up to the minute doppler radar of the area. I use this link to get the Thomas Point report and forecast - NDBC - Station TPLM2. You can use the site to find the station nearest to you.
That's about it for my on the water use of my phone at this point. Oh, I also have the Motorola Q.

Thanks for the replies.

Thanks spicarde and handyman. I used the Weather Channel Get it now service from Verizon and the zoom/loop doopler radar functionality was good on my old Motos.

I suspect the Weather Channels paid subscription service will do that as well, downloading the free trial.. I'll report back.
