approach plates
      #127987 - 09/28/06 02:17 AM

Does anyone know of a company that sells approach plates for the Palm platform? I have heard one exists, but could not find it on a Google search.
Has anyone used it? I would be interested in "reviews".
Has anyone connected a Palm type device to a moving map GPS program?

Thanks,
Bob Wubben

You can download charts in .pdf format from http://naco.faa.gov if that will help you get them into your Palm...

It might be a real challenge to read a pdf of an approach chart on a Palm!! <G>

I think when he speaks of "palm" he is referring to an electronic device, not an anatomical one. <G>

Hi Tom;

Other than it being really really small <G>, I enjoy it. I use it mainly at work when I am trying to find something that I don't have plates for at work. The updates appear to be good, and the developer (youngster <G>) appears to really want to improve the product as much as he can. He appears very responsive...

regards

Scott

Scott: That looks like a good service. I'm chatting with Matthew (developer) to see about getting him some exposure on the TV show. All I have to do is get a smartphone so I can use the product!

I'm holding off, wanting to get the new Treo that Cingular is bringing out this month or next (or next, or next).

They're in your backyard, aren't they? I'm going to order it, assuming it will run on my Treo 700p. You have a code so you can get a referral?
