Hello Pizazza, There seem to be relatively few alternatives to synchronize the information between your PDA and Macintosh. There is a good article at http://www.mobiletechreview.com/tips/mac_FAQ.htm that summarizes the general situation with PDAs and Macintosh (scroll down for the Pocket PC information). It basically concludes that the Pocket PC requires third party software to perform synchronization on the Macintosh. From this and some other searches, I found  The Missing Sync for Pocket PC by Mark/Space ($40) According to http://www.markspace.com/missingsync_windowsmobile.php the latest version is "2.5" and its capabilities are summarized on that site or on several others such as http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Network-Admin/The-Missing-Sync-for-Pocket-PC.shtml and http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Drivers/Missing-Sync-for-Windows-Mobile.shtml at "Softpedia" with a number of screen shots and has a 4 star (out of 5) rating by 17 users (version 2.4, no ratings for 2.5) and appears to have a 14 day trial available. http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/20268 at Version Tracker, which indicates this product was downloaded over 20,000 times (all versions) plus has a number of user feedbacks available http://maczealots.com/reviews/missing-sync/ a review at MacZealots, also describing in brief "PocketMac" (see below) as well Search using the phrase Missing Sync for Pocket PC for a number of additional references.  PocketMac ($42) http://www.pocketmac.net/ in several versions, has a number of reviews on site as well. See also http://maczealots.com/reviews/pocketmac/ for the MacZealots review or http://www.foxpop.co.uk/articles/pocket-pc/406.htm a review from a user in the UK or http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Utilities/PocketMac-Pro.shtml at Softpedia w/ a trial version available. Search using the phrase pocketmac Pocket PC for a number of additional references. The alternatives above seem to match most closely to what you are looking for and both appear to provide an excellent interface between your Pocket PC and Macintosh. Please make a clarification request if some part of the answer is unclear or incomplete. Good luck with your work. --Maniac
