Pocket PC Tips and Tricks -- Storage

Increase The Storage Size
Most modern Pocket PC's come with a large amount of internal memory, or at least one would assume so. However, after using the device for some time, you find out that you never seem to have enough memory. Because the built-in storage can not be easily upgraded, there are other ways of enhancing the PDA storage capacity - Compact-Flash ("CF") or Secure Digital ("SD") cards.


Most modern Pocket PC's come with a SD slot; some also have a built-in CF slot. SD memory cards are now sold with up to 2GB of storage, and CF cards come with up to 8GB. If your Pocket PC has both an SD and a CF slot, it is usually a good idea to buy an SD memory card. Reason being, even with add-ons like GPS or camera cards becoming more available for the SD format, there is a bigger selection (and cheaper prices) in CF cards.

Before buying a storage card, make sure you order one with enough space. This is especially true when you are using your Pocket PC as an onboard navigation system. It comes in handy to have enough storage space so you can store larger maps on the device.
