IPAQ and Canopy

Is there a certain model of IPAQ that should be used for sight surveys? Any recommendations?

just about any PDA that you can plug an ethernet card into will work. It seems like the Windows Mobile version of pocket IE works best.

I can’t seem to connect to an SM with my pda. I can only browse using pocket IE when I’m synced to my desktop. Are there any tricks to getting this to work with only an SM connected to it?
