I live in Spain, wanted a PDA, heard about Aldi/Medion bundle, so I bought one. Basically it seems to work OK, but the problem is, it is all in Spanish (can't be changed), and my Spanish is not brilliant.

I tried to get hold of a PDF file with English instructions, from the support centre, but no joy.

I have got the GPS working OK, but I am unable to do a few things, both on the PDA, and also with the GPS.

1. The town where I live must have about 10,000 houses, yet the Pocket PC refuses to accept the postcode (which is the same for everywhere in the town!). Is there some way to specify lat/long for a point of interest? (it shows my exact location on the map beautifully, so at least the streets are in the database, even if the postcodes aren't).

2. I would like to use Microsoft Reader (to download a English/Spanish dictionary!), but have not succeeded. I think this is linked in to another problem, where I have always used Outlook Express for my mail server. I assume that I need to use Outlook from now on - but I haven't managed to get that to read my email - I still have to go to OE, because Outlook does not pick up any email at all.

3. I still haven't figured out how to transfer Pocket Word, Pocket Excel, etc. to the desktop PC, nor PC files to the Medion. If I try to drag and drop from the PDA to the C drive, the PDA files are all greyed out. If I try to drag and drop from the PC to the PDA, when I hover over the PDA, the icon shows that it won't accept it.

I appreciate this is not a problem that anyone else would have, so I don't want to clutter up the forum, but if anyone thinks they can help, either with a follow-on to this, or send me a message directly, I would be grateful.

PS - Third attempt at sending. Glad I looked elsewhere in the forum, and saw the tip about "Invalid Session" - the trick of turning off the firewall worked immediately.

Whoops, I posted this, then realised it was in the guestbook forum - not where I intended.

Please don't reply to this, I will re-post elsewhere.
