Hi all,

So my favorite toy is sick.  It's an Nokia N810 "Internet Tablet", a pocket-Sized Linux-based PDA.  Think iPod Touch, but with a bigger screen, real GPS, free Apps, and it does Flash.  Something happened to the file system, I think, because it's stuck in a reboot loop.  

I'm on a short vacation, and want to be able to do local pass predictions.  I have an HP hw6945 iPAQ-based phone, which runs Windows Mobile 5, and found an App for this, "SatCE".  It seems to run ok, except that the predicted satellite positions are all wrong.  I checked the usual suspects - clock is set, UTC offset, fresh Keps, etc.  
Has anyone used this app, and have a suggestion for where to look?  Lacking that, what App would you recommend instead?
