I'm just wondering if any of you have a modem springboard for yours and if it's worth getting. I have the ultimate Prism model.

I have a Visor Deluxe and was looking to get a Modem. I use mine for keeping track of Bizjet registrations mostly. I have recently decided to just go ahead and get a laptop so I can connect tot he net while at the airport so I can watch http://www.fboweb.com and see whats inbound. Its quite expensive to keep a Palm connected. Much more than a laptop. Maybe it just seems like it.

Just like Boeing757fan said it is very expensive to it via the modem way - unless of course you absolutely really need to have thing real time. The only ones I know at the office who connect that way are our sales people and my stockbroker friends. But even they just switched to getting updated through their web-enabled phones.

I usually just only sync twice a day (once at work and once at home) so I can't give you personal experience on usability and costs on the modem.

Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

I have a VisorPhone which also serves as a modem. You need a dial-up account, and the phone comes with a pretty good browser called Blazer. The speed is only 9600 baud, though. I bought it primarily to use the phone, but I often log on to airline websites to get current flight and gate info. when I'm traveling.

The phone is only $49 if you sign up for a year of service, which runs about $70 per month for 600 minutes of nationwide (US) roaming.

I love it because it integrates beautifully with the Visor address book and I only have to carry around one nerd-pack instead of 2 or 3.
