French-English Dictionary for Axim PDA

I had a french-english dictionary on my Axim but wasn't happy with it. It has Windows Mobile 5 as an operating system. Do you have any experience or suggestions? TIA.

I guess my husband is right and you all speak perfect French and will show us up for the rubes we are.

I am not quite sure of your question ... Are you unhappy with the PDA or the dictionary?
I have an Axim with a Fr-En dictionary as well as a En-Fr dictionary and am quite happy with both of the dictionaries as well as with the PDA. How can I help?

The neat thing about these Microsoft Reader dictionaries is that you can be reading a French ebook, and when you come to a word you don't know, touch it with the stylus and the French-English dictionary will display the translation.

I am sorry that I was unclear. I am looking for suggestions for the dictionary. Also for any other software appropriate for a trip to France.

The dictionaries that I have loaded in mine are the Microsoft Reader ones and I have been very happy with them. They were free (I think) when I downloaded them.
Best program ever? - the Metro program (free) for the Paris Metro.
I am also a fan of the iFodors program for the excellent map of Paris and the routing function (see the Fodors bookstore above).
As well I downloaded a Reader menu reader which is essential to my travel.

The awesome subway/bus routing program is at nanika.net/metro.

"I am looking for suggestions for the dictionary."

I'm sorry I was unclear. They're at the link of my 5:09 last night.

Greetings, I am writing for AGM Cape Cod. Thanks for the suggestions for dictionaries and maps. Can you give us a bit more info on the following items you mentioned. "iFodors program for the excellent map of Paris and the routing function (see the Fodors bookstore above).
As well I downloaded a Reader menu reader which is essential to my travel."
Are these both programs to be used on the Axim? If so where do we get them?
Thanks in advance!

I use the Microsoft Pocket Streets maps. They're free, and run on any Windows Mobile computer.

Link to iFodors guides:

I am currently using this on an Axim.
Link to free Microsoft Reader free titles:
http://www.microsoft.com/reader/prom.../free_shop.asp
Browse and choose from the many free titles which should work in your Axim if you have Microsoft Reader installed.
Advise : Go slowly and download one at a time and master before the next one.
Good luck.

ifodors ! Wow, just what I was looking for. Unfortunately, I get the message:

"iFodor's Paris for Palm OS is currently unavailable and cannot be purchased.
Please select another product."

It is unavailable for any OS. Hopefully this is a temporary situation...

Interesting...the iFodors seems to be unavailable for all operating systems. Perhaps someone will drop a line to customer service and find out what is up. I like mine.

iFodor's looks like mostly a planning tool - but that's not what you need when you're walking around.

The Microsoft Pocket Streets maps of European cities have extensive Points of Interest you can summon instantly. And they're free.
