Does anyone know where I can find some good tutorials on how to use Windows Mobile 5 (about 2005 vintage, give or take)??? There's this hyper-expensive "surveyor-grade" GPS device that a state trails organization is loaning to local recreational trails organizations, and I may need to learn how to run the thing. Its operating system is Windows Mobile 5. (The device is supposedly worth $4,000.)

I don't know anything about WinMob 5.

Read and comprehend the post before replying. The state trails dept is borrowing them the GPS, not selling. We have plenty of handheld devices running windows mobile and CE. They cost thousands of dollars when new and we will use them until they break. Survey grade GPS units are very expensive, depending on functions, usually $2-6k. You don't replace expensive equipment because the os used for the interface is old.
