Hi Kevin,

Because the Tracker runs Win CE.NET you will have a hard time finding a calculator to run on it. We have found one that you can use and it is available as a free download.

Go to: The website is http://www.calculator.org and you will want to download the HPC version. Once you install it you will instantly see that the calculator doesn't fit very well on the landscape display and you will need to modify the calculator's view settings.

With the calculator running, you can go to:
View-Options screen. On the Mode Tab set it to RPN & Deg. Finally on the View Tab set the Function Keypad - Width 26 and Main Keypad -Width 27.
This calculator is free, and it works ok. I haven't used it that much so let me know what you think.

The calculator you recommended is a nice program...especially since its free..I use it on my Ipaq...the program has way more information then you will probally ever need to do

There is a calculator progrm that you can purchase that is identical to the old HP 16c calculators and it meant to be run in landscape screen mode

Check around..there are some 100+ calulator programs for CE
