    Which apps have the pilots here found to be useful/compatible on their t600?

    I'm using the t600 gsm now but used to use clipping apps on the i705 & i710 for weather, planning, filing, etc. I also used copilot for trip planning and W&B. Is there anything for performance, density altitude, etc?

    Here is a good flight planning program which works very well on the 600 and the same company has an E6B program. http://www.skywritersoft.com/.

    One can also use the standard DUATS applications on the 600 via Blazer although the screensize hampers that app. If you are a member of AOPA, the AOPA text weather site can be displayed on the 600. Accuweather (www.accuweather.com) can display a remarkably good radar and satellite picture on the 600 also.

    If you use SMS, go to that app and type in hz@hz.com in the "To" field, then TAF KXXX or METAR KXXX in the text field, and within a few seconds it will return with the taf or metar for that airport.

    Alas, PQAs don't work on the Treo 600. They'll be missed.

    Meanwhile, here's a list of aviation programs I have loaded on my Treo 600 and which work nicely:

    Airports -- an AFD with runway diagrams
    eSixB+
    AP Signs
    PAD (an aviation reference guide)
    SASI (a VOR/ADF simulator)
    FARs (always good reading <g>)

    Most of these can be found at www.palmgear.com.

    There are a couple of weather graphics sites that work with the Treo 600: http://wx.rampage.net/ and http://www.cupittaviation.com/

    There's an email list, which I run, devoted to the use of PDAs in aviation: PalmPilotPilots, http://groups.yahoo.com/group/palmpilotpilots. I'm sure that you'll be able to find out about a lot of other aviation programs there.
