Default Of what use can be a old Tungsten E ?

Hello Guys,

I have this 2 yr old PDA Tungsten E, which has been just lying around for couple of months. I don't think it has any resalse value left, so no pint in selling it. I have an 1 GB MMC.

I have used it for Word docs, Power point , movies and mp3. Was wondering what else can I use it for ?

Thanks

I thought of this, but Palm guys says that only Tungsten E2 supports GPS functionality. Though I googled for it, but couldn't find a way to get Tungsten E support GPS.

The problem is the MMC card slot - no one makes add-on stuff with MMC interface. Had it been CF Card slot, you might have found something.

Does it have a USB interface? You could check if any map program for Tungsten can accept input from a GPS unit with USB i/f.

I use MMC but it can support SD card slot (Secure Digital), supports MMC and SDIO cards.

Yes it has min usb.

Will look into GPS thing. Any other use anyone can think of ?
