I just bought a Palm Pilot IIIxe series PDA with, and I was wondering what is the best software to use to down load cache info on it.

If you haven't already, you may want to check out the Palm thread:

http://www.mngca.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=380

It may not answer this particular question for you, but there's a lot of Palm related discussion there about how a number of the members do the Palm thing.

I use GSAK/GPS Babel to convert my pocket queries to HTML format and then use Plucker to load that onto my Palm. I also use FileMaker Mobile but that's only useful if you are already using Filemaker on your PC or Mac.

This is also what I'm using, although I'm using Sunrise to roll the HTML files so they are ready for the Palm. I think most of the process that I'm using is laid out in the Palm thread.
