Sorry, but I haven't tried aard dict viewer yet. Evopedia is optimized
for the Freerunner screen (at least it seems that aard dict viewer works
better on wider displays), it uses the gps information in Wikipedia (and
the gps receiver in the Freerunner) and it does not have it's own client
software but can be used with any browser (and from any host).
The downside is that there are not so many dumps available yet. I don't
know if there are differences in speed or stability.

Kind regards,
