I originally bought a Palm Vx way back in early 2000 and decided to gather my links in
an easily accessible place. My buddies Rob and Scott hooked me up with several of these sites, and I found a bunch on my own. I moved from the Vx to a Palm m515, but lost that sometime in 2003! (I eventually found it, and it still works like a charm!) I then moved up to a Palm Tungsten T2. Wanted a Treo 600, but my Sprint contract wouldn't allow me to take advantage of the $150 rebate until it's up for renewal (um, how stupid is that!?!), and I certainly wont to pay $600 for a cell phone/pda combo when I don't have to! I broke the screen on the T2, sent it back to Palm for repair and the battery never held a charge after that. Although I bought and installed a 3rd party battery, I'd already moved onto a Special Edition Zire 72 which I like a lot, and it still works just fine. (The m515 and the Zire are currently looking for new homes!) I have just purchased a Garmin iQue 3600
that I am just learning about. I went ahead and got the Auto bundle which included a friction mount for the car.
Hope these links help out! Enjoy!

*Update 3/06 More updates... As you can see, I'm staying on top of this site! ;-) I know I seriously need to update the look and usability of this site, but... it's just such a low priority. I have a pHp app I'm gonna use, but I just need to do it... :-D

All the links work as of today. Who knows how long that'll last. Clicking on a link will open a new window in most browsers. I swear I will one day get the links organized!

Do you do ANY online shopping? If so, be sure to check out my coupon page! Although this site hasn't been updated in years, I'm still hoping to revive it one day!!!

Garmin Specific Software Sites

FastFinger - Many applications are difficult to use in the car, besides being quite dangerous. There are some functions on the iQue that require stylus entry. In comparison, automotive GPS units be easily navigated and controlled with simple controls. FastFinger is a launcher with macro capabilities. It allows you to control the iQue using hard button presses and large screen buttons. With two finger taps, you can route to home, find the nearest gas station, set a detour, or perform any number of functions. - *New 3/06*

Garmin iQue Waypoint converters - *New 3/06*
- 3 Different converters available:
- que2geW version 1.2 (iQue to Google-Earth waypoint converter)
- que2mpsW version 1.2 (iQue to Mapsource waypoint converter)
- que2oziW version 1.1 (iQue to Ozi-Explorer waypoint converter)

Import waypoints into the iQue - *New 3/06*
the iQue stores waypoints in the Palm address book. So the easiest way to get waypoints into the iQue is to convert them into a vCard format. Once the waypoint data has been converted into a vCard, you simply read the vCard file into the Palm Desktop and then HotSync. To read these vCard files into the Palm Desktop you can either drag and drop them onto the open address book, or you can create a file association to Palm Desktop for the vCard file format.
The linked program (Geocaching To iQue) will currently convert two types of files as follows:
1) *.loc files in the XML format as downloaded from
2) *.txt files in a tab delimited format as created from the MapSource File->Export as tab delimited menu option

GPSBabel GPSBabel converts waypoints, tracks, and routes from one format to another, whether that format is a common mapping format like Delorme, Streets and Trips, or even a serial upload or download to a GPS unit such as those from Garmin and Magellan. - *New 3/06*

PalGar Use your PALM to up-, download and edit waypoints from a GARmin GPS - Note that this may or may not work on the iQue! - *New 3/06*

Map Servers

I'm not sure how I'm going to use these just yet, if at all. But since I would be using them with the Garmin, I thought I'd keep them with this.

MapServer is an Open Source development environment for building spatially-enabled internet applications. MapServer is not a full-featured GIS system, nor does it aspire to be. Instead, MapServer excels at rendering spatial data (maps, images, and vector data) for the web. - *New 3/06*
deegree The Free Software project deegree offers the substantial building blocks for the building of a Spatial Data Infrastructure by implementing the standards of the Open GIS Consortium (OGC) and ISO/TC 211. As the whole architecture of deegree is based on OGC specifications and concepts, there are no problems to integrate standardized products of other vendors (e.g. ArcIMS by ESRI(c)). - *New 3/06*
ArcIMS is the solution for delivering dynamic maps and GIS data and services via the Web. - *New 3/06*
