    The PalmPilot software you want is CelestNav, and you can find it on
    Palmgear.com.  I have been using it actively for over a year, it is
    terrific software, well worth the modest price. Full almanac plus sight
    reduction on any body you ever want to use, very easy to use. I
    recommend it highly, there is a demo version and full tutorial at

    Here are some urls where I found an almanac, for the same reason of
    it on board on the pc:
    http://pollux.nss.nima.mil/pubs/  here you can find many publications
    available for download also
    http://www.geocities.com/andresruizgonzalez/  here you can find also a
    software, very well done, for astro navigation
    http://www.tecepe.com.br/scripts/AlmanacPagesISAPI.isa you choose the
    and it gives you the pages for sun, moon, planets and stars valid for 3
    days. Only problem you must be connected to internet.
    If you have a Palm, go to www.palmgear.com and you'll find a program
    will give you even your position putting in the sights, it's free for 30
    days, then you have to buy it and its cost is around 49 usd.
