Aww-right... Here's one method with a couple of options...

If it's a reasonably current phone running Android, iOS, or Windows Mobile, you'll be in ok shape. We can work with that. The method I describe here will assume an Android device. The process is "similar" with the iPhone, I just can't spout that off by heart... If you are using an iPhone, I'll swipe one from a friend right quick and work through that for you.

I use a service called "Dropbox" for file hosting. It synchronizes files across multiple devices: PC Desktop, Laptop, PDA, etc. The application is free. And, you get 2GB of storage for free. If you need more than that, they start charging. But, I rarely need more than 2GB in a pinch. There are other services with larger storage allocations. But, I'm getting off point. Bottom line, here's a referral link to the Dropbox service. They'll never spam you. And, you get A LOT of functionality from their service.

1. Setup your Dropbox account from the link above.
2. Copy the PDF into a folder within Dropbox.
3. Install Adobe PDF Reader from the Android App market.
4. From the PDA, navigate to the folder where you stored the PDF file.
5. Single-tap the file name.
6. Depending upon bandwidth (3G, 4G, WiFi), the PDF should load.
6A. [The bonus plan] Instead of downloading the PDF to memory and viewing it, you could longpress the file name from Step 5 (above) and select "Download". This will store the PDF on your device. Once it's there, you can simply navigate to it [Using File Explorer or many other similar applications] and open it. This will ultimately be faster than downloading the entire +/- 25MB every time you want to see something.

If you're running an iOS device, I THINK the app most of the folks in my office use in Step 3 is called "iBooks". And, aga in -- this is JUST ONE of a million different ways to pull this off with a Smart Phone / PDA. If you'd like to tell me specifically what hardware you're using, I'd be glad to see if we can't figure something out to make it work for you. Just let me know, sir. Either PM me, or just let me know here -- there may be somebody else with the same issue that we can help.

Take care, and keep the rubber-side down!

The PDF is in a compressed (ZIP) format. I just tested the link, and I'm getting the file downloading properly. PM me if you'd like, and we'll try to get any other issues resolved.

This is why it pays to read stickies. I've been dicking around with the other non searchable version for almost a year now and was too lazy to do this myself.

Thanks a ton for this.

Actually, I used a high-rez one that clocked in at about 130MB to create the one I posted. The higher resolution ones, while handy when reviewing wiring diagrams and such, are not (generally) configured as searchable text... They are more like image files in a pdf container...
