This is kinda a revist to the original post http://www.contractorschatroom.com/showthread.php?t=162

Right now I have a Dell AXIM and I just bought a wireless printer that receives via infrared. The printer works great for unformatted docs but I can't find a solution to printing properly for formatted docs. I spent a few hours downloading and trying out various "add ons" that claim to work with formatted docs but none work properly either.

I'm at the point where I might scrap my axim (sell on ebay) and also sell my laptop too, then buy a tablet PC. I don't really want to do this because I like the convenience of a hand held. I was really hoping someone could give me some advice on a software that will work for printing.

If I can find the proper printing software I am going to buy a cellular modem for my axim and then setup the office network so I can login remotely. I want to be totally mobile before summer hits. I will have the ability to work from anywhere as if I were in the office.

What kind of printer is it?
If its an HP try this: http://www.hp.com/pond/mep/download/ppcdownload.html

But of course being the gadget guy I am... I would buy a Tablet PC :Thumbs:
Man I love those things. I think they would be great for estimates and such. Just make sure you buy a 'convertable' one that converts from a laptop to a Tablet. I think Toshiba makes the best one.

Yeah I am thinking tablet too but I like the convenience of having my planner in my pocket :) If I get a tablet I am definetly getting the convertable. No if ands or butts, but I'd rather make what I already have work.

It's the canon i70 I sent them an email right before I posted this message and no response so far.
