The Onset HOBO LCD dataloggers are compatible with a Palm-based
datalogger shuttle software called HandCar Pro (It's not USB
compatible, and requires a serial download cable).  I've been using
this set-up with a Palm m500 for years, and it have been quite happy
with it. Unfortunately, it appears as if Onset is no longer offering
this software.  I know that it was a constant headache for them to
keep updating the software every time Palm updated their product
line.  If you have access to an older Palm device and can sweet-talk
Onset into shipping you a copy of the software and the appropriate
download cable, you'll be all set.  It's worth a try--their customer
service and tech support people are usually very accommodating.
