PSION Series 5/5mx
« on: June 13, 2018, 10:10:16 pm »
Hi Guys :)

If there are any current users or collectors of PSION pocket computers (particularly those mentioned in the title), I’d love to get in touch.
I’m chasing any of the commercial GPS packages for it, which I already know didn’t apply to Australia, but still very curious about them.

I got the EPOC C SDK working with Windows 7, which was a minor miracle. It requires MS Visual C++ version 5.0 (1997), and an old Perl
to run the scripts. The emulators for development also appear to be working fine, so there will be new software in 2018 that nobody will use! :D

Hardware is easy to come by on eBay if you’re willing to pay for it, but software is another story.
I just paid $150AU inc. postage for a secondhand boxed Chess, and I don’t think that will happen again.

The unit itself, I should be grateful. It was $12 from an op-shop (thrift store).
Cheers, Brek.

Hi :)
I was talking about commercial software (without trying to explicitly say such), but not matter in what form I get it, would be willing to pay for original software.
Garmin stuff and NMEA viewers I can write myself.
