Map download PDA -> GarminV?

I'd like to download more maps when on the road without lugging a laptop around with me. Anyone loaded the maps into a PDA and access them that way? Which PDA and did it require any special cables?

I am exploring that stuff too.

I got a old Pocket PC from a co-worker with 32MB memory
and a cable from there http://www.pc-mobile.net/
They've got pretty much any cable you need.
you may look into this too.

That works for sure for Tracklog/routes/waypoints.
I am still learning for maps.

Don't think you'll be able to do maps with a PocketPC, which is WinCE; not XP [or 95, 98, ME, NT...). To the best of my knowledge the only thing that really works for maps is full blown Winblows...

Steve,

I don't like that answer. I'm hoping it isn't true. There's gotta be a way to download maps to the thing without lugging a laptop around.

Yes, I remember seeing a post either here (advrider) or thumpertalk about it.

I just can't seem to find it, the problem with the search is that you can not have required words. If I search GPS PDA it will return post with either Gps or pda...

I've heard of guys downloading ignition maps to the ICU from a PDA, so it seems do-able. Good luck locating the thread!
