As you explore the world, how many times have you needed an odd bit of information that you didn’t have on hand? Maybe it’s the population of Senegal or the characteristics of a certain type of plant or details on the literary career of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Whatever the information, it’s probably somewhere on Wikipedia

Considering all that comes with it, Tomeraider is a fairly good value at $38, though a bit pricey as PDA software goes. While simple to use, the Tomeraider people have a reputation for poor customer support and service, so be prepared to solve your own problems.

The downloadable Wikipedia (dating from late 2005) is well worth the long download. If you care about having the latest, greatest version purchasing the DVD might not be a bad option. Alternatively, if you’re especially technically savvy, you can make your own version with the instructions included on the web page.

Whether you’re looking for a Beijing subway map or to brush up on your grizzly bear survival strategy, the combination of Tomeraider and Wikipedia is a singularly useful item for any traveler.
