    RPN Calc

    Does anyone have any experiences/recommendations with a RPN calculator on the i760?

    RPN = Reverse Polish Notation....before the jokes start flying..it's real...common and valuable for engineers...

    Reverse Polish notation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    HP still makes calculator models with RPN (HP 33S and HP 35S), however the 1980s models, which were in production for probably 10 or 15 years have a certain cachet that everybody likes, for whatever reason.

    I'd like to get a backup on the PDA...

    I'd try Calc98 at: Home Page

    I'm not sure if it is compatible, as I use it on a Dell X50v.

    Omega One's 1-Calc might be overkill at $30, but it supports RPN and a bazillion other things modern calculators can do.

    I have used Lygea's HP 12C program for a few years now. Looks and feels just like the real thing! Not sure about Engineering calcs, etc but it's worth a look.

    And I agree - once you go RPN you never go back!! It's hard to learn initially but I love it!

    Good luck and let us know which one you end up with.

    Edit: Adding a link: Welcome to Lygea Calculators

    And if you have a smartphone, it looks like they have released some versions for specific smartphones as well!

    There is an emulator. I used it for a while.

    Thx everyone...I'll continue to take ideas and recommendations if anyone has them....As soon as I get my phone I'll give all of these a spin and see...

    I'm particularly interested in Lygea's....

    I agree heartily with Jay. I've used several versions of Lygea's 12C program for years, and am thrilled with it. Before that, I used a couple of other emulators, and didn't find them nearly as good.

    Omega One 1-Calc graphs up to 4 equations and does quadratics, but ugh at $30.

    I've use Lygea since I used to have an old HP 12C for years. Its good but the Omega is better even if $30. I dont use it to its full potential for what I do but I still worth it.

    Trial downloads is your first path I guess.....

    Math Tablet

    I have been using Math Tablet this week and it seems to work very well, and it won some award from Smart phone mag. I am on old HP 48 user and so cannot use an algebraic calc any more.

    Cost $14.95

    Download the trial and try it out.
