Palm T5 Question
About 3 months ago I bought a Palm Tungsten T5 on eBay for a song. $45 cause the battery was dead. Unplug it and the palm would shut off. Bought a new lithium battery for $9 and all is awesome again. I then bought a bluetooth GPS receiver from Holux for $25. No issues pairing anything, even to this laptop.
I originally bought the Palm so I could by the GPS, and planned on downloading mapping software, but all I can seem to find are very pricey ones.
Is there an inexpensive or freeware map, similar to MS Streets & Trips or the like that operates on a PalmOS 5.*?
I'd also purchased the GPS receiver so if I had my laptop in the car, I could use that instead of the Palm. I have plans to make a laptop incar mount, similar to what you might see in a patrol car.
The Palm is so much more compact and I'd much rather use that instead.
Any suggestions? I have googled my ass off and keep coming up empty handed...
The T5 has an SD slot so putting the software on my SD cards isn't an issue... It's just a matter of finding a decent mapping program, preferrably supporting Canadian highways, streets, etc.
I'm almost starting to regret this Palm purchase LOL
