    I found what I was looking for.

    Requirements

    In order to use GeoNiche, you must have the following:

    • A PalmOS based handheld with PalmOS 3.5 or newer
    • An NMEA-based non-Compact-Flash GPS receiver that is compatible with your handheld
    • A desire to get the most out of your GPS/handheld combination

    Hmmm.... This message sounds like SPAM to me, but I'll check it out. Hard to teachus "old dogs" new tricks, though. I've gotten so used to Cachemate...

    Unhappy ugh

    I share your concern Bruce. Perhaps this is a legitimate company, but I'm not sure how interested I am with them having free reign to advertise through the website. I get bombarded with stuff as it is and have enjoyed being free of that here. Of course, if others believe that there is value in receiving the information, I am certainly ok with that as well.

    I thought the same thing when I first saw the post and that it was from Redmond Washington.

    Arrow GeoNiche beta testers needed

    Hello,

    I am the author of GeoNiche.

    I am currently looking for beta testers with a PalmOS based handheld and a Compact Flash based GPS receiver to test the next version of GeoNiche which may support these type of GPS Receivers (depending on how the beta testing goes).

    As with all beta testing, you may receive a version of the program that crashes and/or loses data. On the other hand, you might also receive a fully functional program before it is available to others.

    If you are willing to help, and you have a Compact Flash based GPS receiver for your PalmOS handheld, please send me an EMail message.

    Thanks
    ((RayDar))
