Default Tides on Windows Mobile PDA??

Does anyone have a decent app they use to get tide info on their PDA's running Windoes Mobile?

I used to use CTide on my old PocketPC devices, but I don't think that app works on Windows Mobile.

Any others out there for WM devices?

I use NavStation. I only have the tides component and it works well for my Q.

http://www.navstation.co.uk/

Nothing can beat TideTool for the price (free) and quality, except it is only for Palm OS.

The free one from Neildot.com does not work. Tried it several times, emailed them, never get a response back. Guess you get what you pay for,....

Think I'll try the navstation one.....

The saltwatertides.com one looks like a website, I want an app I can take with me and use when I have no service.....

Do you find that the predictions in your GPS are inaccurate?

No, they are very accurate. But when I'm not on the boat, trying to decide when to go fishing and where, it would be nice to use my PDA.

funny, there own website (Navstaion.com) does not show any compatability to the WM OS. But all the sales sites like Pocketgear do. Anywho, I just tried it, and it is not working on WM6 which is what I'm running. Just sent them an email, will see what happends....

No you didn't!!

You got Ctide working on a WM 6.1 POCKET PC phone. "Windows Mobile" and "Windows Mobile Pocket PC" are VERY different. Ctide doesn't work on Windows Mobile.

When I'm on the boat, the chartplotter works. When I'm at work or home ore on the road, the computer works. When I only have my bb, I can open a webpage and that works.

If all else fails, I usually just go fishing whenever my schedule allows, and I fish whatever tide I find under the boat.

Now wave heights, I pay attention to and do need access to. Luckily noaa still has the phone system and email reflectors.

When I'm on my boat, my chartplotter does it all. I also have the Garmin Oregon 400c hand held, that does it all. My laptop can run tide software, go to websites..... and do it all. I also could, as posted, go out buy a Palm device, or a Pocket PC device, and get software to work on it!

But none of that solves the problem, of getting a tide software package like the great "CTide", to work on a simple, Windows Mobile phone (the most popular phone OS on the planet by the way).

Got 99 cents? buy a pocket tide table at whatever marine store is still in business!

It comes with all the batteries it will ever need.

It is never easy to summarize an entire life and legacy in one single, sincere speech. But by reviewing an eulogy sample - pinpointing what truly speaks to you and ruling out what may not be as fitting inside your specific conditions - you will be sure to get the proper tone. Keep in mind the eulogy to be as unique because the dearly departed. Just only because some situation is included in an example you have study does not always mean that it should be integrated in the funeral speech that you're composing. Give some thought as towards the type of service you are holding for your cherished one. Remember about your cherished one's character, and the emotions of your fellow mourners. If the recently deceased was known for his pervasive sense of humor, perhaps a joke could be fitting. Otherwise, you might wish to get some other's opinions on what aspects to get from any particularly touching instance you've read.

WTF kind of spam BS is this?
