    Be able to access the MLS (im not sure if you have to use a paticular one, its late and i will ask her tomorrow)

    On road Printing (which i have selected printboy for. good choice i hope )

    mortagage calc.(would be nice to have this included in another app)

    i found that there are two ways to get file from mls

    1. you can get it wireless (up to date real time listings)

    this way (#1) is a bit expensive , around $160-200 setup fee + monthly charges $15-25

    2. hotsync your listings before you leave (now i am just guessing, but you
    store this on a sd card correct?)

    For these programs (#2) there is a one time fee and this is mobile mls

    I think i will start her off with the mobile mls(#2) and see how that works out

    now if someone could point me in the right direction as to where i can find a good mobile mls app that would be great(did you read the above post 1 thru this one ) i really cant test them out myself so i just wanted an opinion

    Funny thread Franko. Now that daylight is rolling around hopefully you'll get some answers to your questions soon. Just do us a favor and don't post a pic of "the pose" once you've got it figured out.

    I'll be watching this threadl since I'm currently looking for a new house and my wife is something of an MLS Guru, at least from home. Would be nice to enable her to look up info about the places we find while on the road.

    This might help

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    i have been tryin to get things together for my wife who is a real estate agent.(im gonna buy her the 650) i just wanted to get all the info before buying, and here is some info i found. if you find out anything else please keep me posted.

    My $91 mobile office and wireless printing solution

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In the past, when I needed to prepare documents on the road, I needed to visit Kinkos and rent a computer and printer. Now, I can skip Kinkos and do everything on my Treo.

    I have been able to set up my Treo 650 as a complete mobile office, without spending tons of money, and without using a laptop. I can now (1) grab docs from my desktop; (2) email them to my Treo; (3) edit the docs on the Treo or create new documents from scratch, including long documents; and (4) print out final copies of the document wirelessly.

    Here is my set-up:

    1. For obtaining documents on the road:

    --Sprint Business Connection: allows me to email documents from my desktop to the 650. (Free with my data plan)

    --Win-Hand Anywhere: remote desktop app which is a backup for the Sprint BC app. (Free!)

    2. For modifying E-mailed docs or drafting new docs:

    --Documents to Go (Bundled free with the 650)

    --Wordsmith (good alternative to Docs to Go. I am a longtime registered user of this app, so it was basically free for me on the 650)

    --PalmOne Universal Wireless Keyboard: works great with the Treo 650 for pounding out longer documens via the IR port. ($47 from Amazon)

    3. Printing out docs on the road:

    --Printboy: has the printer drivers for printing directly from the Treo ($39 retail, plus $5 for shipping, minus $30 from Palm's referral program = $14 final price)

    --Canon BJC-80 - small portable battery-powered printer with a built-in IR adaptor for wireless printing. ($30 from ebay, which included the printer, battery pack, and carrying case. I love Ebay for stuff like this)

    Total extra money spent to turn $650 into my mobile office:

    Keyboard: $47
    PrintBoy: 14
    Printer: 30

    Total: $91

    So far, the set-up is working great. I am just needing to adjust some documents/letterhead for the simple PrintBoy font capability.

    Franko,
    How you get the MLS info is dependant on what MLS she uses. As for a loan calc. I swear by Loan Wizard Pro , you can solve for any unkown (ie. payment, loan amount duration etc..) It calculates all mortgage details like PMI, insurance and taxes. You can save an umlimited number of clients loan info so if they change there price range you just click the new price and it spits out there payment details, plus it gives amortorized details as well. It has an extremly easy UI and all upgrades have been free for several years now.

    Hope that helps.

    I think your best bet for the mls info is going to be pocket realestate, it is mls specific. I know I'm unable to get into my mls with my treo and view/search the listings. Pocket Real Estate has 2 versions one where you sync and download the info every day another is the wireless version... I'd go with the wireless version... of course PRE wans you to use both.
