Or is it in "freewheel" mode.
Concern - when you do get around to updates,
please dont forget about the Treo 600, which
has lo-res color 160x160 screen. Working great now,
but I'd hate to see it fall off the supported hardware
list. I run the app from SD card, but have the
database on internal RAM. :(
appreciate all the work that went into this.

As I still have an PalmVx (160x160, 16 gray scales)
the old resolutions are still supported :)
You may try the latest CVS version. It is a bit unstable
and there are some GUI-elements that do not work (the
functionality is not implemented) and some minor graphical
bugs. I also haven't checked whether the calculations are
still correct by comparing them with a real night sky.

Unfortunately supporting SD cards directly is quite difficult
as there is no special support for PDB-files on SD cards.
AFAIK one has to parse the PDB files and in fact write some
code to access the records in a similar way as PalmOS
does for internal databases. And as I still have a PalmVx I can't
test anything regarding SD cards.

We made considerable progress on new features including bigger object
databases and hires support in the CVS version of Astro Info.
Unfortunately these features are largely broken at present and require a
fair bit of effort to complete. Jochen and I both have Palm V type
devices and I must confess I don't use mine much anymore as it is rather
I guess one of the developers will need to own a newer device in order
to get some renewed enthusiasm for this project.
