Hello Cachers,

Today while out searching for a couple of caches. I happened to lean on my pack containing among other things my PDA. I heard a little snap, yup the screen, shoot.
Will I have any problem installing "Cachemate" on a different PDA? I'm talking about it being a registered copy and all.
Thanks for your help, Cache On, Al

Palm or Windows-based? If it is a Palm, I can guarantee you won't have any problems unless you don't use the same username as what you used before.

Al,

Let me count. I must be on my 4th PDA by now. One shattered on a hard tile floor, another went swimming in a swamp, the third had some strange power problem and kept burning through a set of batteries in less than two days. Number 4 is holding up well at the moment.

At any rate, I've just plugged in the new PDA, hotsync'd and was back in business in minutes.

For future reference, Cachemate does allow up to 5 registration codes if you change your PDA username. When I replaced my PDA I didn't even think about the PDA name affecting the program but thankfully with their self-serve registration page, I was back in business.

Hey ScubaAl what kind of PDA did you buy, and what was your old one?
