[aprssig] pocket APRS

I'm not familiar with the AXIM unit specifically, but have used APRS with a
normal TNC (KPC3+) on my HP iPaq 2210.  For mine, and I would imagine it'll
be a similar setup with your AXIM, all I had to get was a serial adapter
cable that plugged into the bottom dock/sync connector which provided me
with a 9-pin serial connection which you can use with a normal serial TNC.  

Try this site for an adapter:

I want to play APRS again but I have been "out of the loop" far too long...

My goal is to use a Dell AXIM X51v as the computer, some sort of mapping -
perhaps Tiger maps.

Where I am running into difficulty is the TNC.

I plan to use a Bluetooth GPS, but do not know what current TNC's will work
with the AXIM, and, how to connect the TNC to the AXIM via the connector at
the bottom of the AXIM.

Suggestions anyone?
