Hi Pat:

I use SatTrack+ with my old iPaq Pocket PC. I don't know if the program 
will work on yours but there is also a version for Palm... Since it is 
trial-ware, I'd say try it.

I'm very satisfied with the way it works. I usually check the pass 
trajectory before I go out (I'm working portable) as I don't want to 
have to carry more stuff than really needed.

It would be nice if the program alerted you to the time of the pass, but 
unfortunately, it does not do that. I program my cell phone's scheduler 
for that and that works best as the cell phone is with me all the time.
