Pocket PC Software for Ecomodding

I have a pocket PC phone. this makes it ideal for tracking everything to do with my cars since my phone is always on me.

What software do you guys suggest? OR palm software I always carry my zodiac as well (in fact I might prefer my zodiac ie palm software higher res screen 480x320)

Software thats available for both with interchangeable databases would be really nice

I am looking for one or two program. One a simple fuel logger. Free preferred I found one but it uss ODO readings not trip meter readings (gonna have to calculate my odo since I do not track that)

A full fledged vehicle tracker if its NICE enough might be worth a purchase if you guys have some good suggestions??

Multi Vehicle is critical.

Thanks!

This guy has a multi-vehicle logging app for the palm. If it could be ported to waba it would run on about any handheld:

I use an Excel spreadsheet shared between my phone and my PC. You could create a different sheet for each vehicle and customize it to use the data you want (ODO or trip) and show the results you want. I enter the date, ODO and gallons then calculate tank MPG, 5 tank MPG and total MPG over life of the car. Works really nice. You could also track maintenance, etc. Just add columns and formulas to your heart's content.

i had a Palm V a few years ago - then it was interduced to Mr Gravity off of a Power Plant Exhaust Stack ( who knew they would break into so many pieces)

My Cell is basic phone.


I have a little note pad in the car for making notes after each trip. With the SG i can now log my data after each direction of work commute. then use Laptop for entering data into Excel

Maybe next phone will have more features - but probably not - i get it through work so it tends to be the basic phone only.

What would really rock is a program that was super simple open it pop in the odo/trip reading pop in the gallons and click save. it would add all the date time info and they auto upload that to eco modder. :-) now that would be neat.
