Download Psion WaveFinder Setup Software and Drivers.

Well, this piece of kit is a blast from the past! I remember buying one, not realising there was no DAB signal anywhere near my home at the time. Anyway, once I moved I was able to get a signal and I was able to use my Wavefinder. It was pretty cutting edge at the time, it was also quite buggy as I seem to remember.
Yesterday I found the installation / drivers CD and decided to upload it here just incase there are still some Psion Wavefinder users out there.
I would be interested to know if there are any people still using a Wavefinder. If you download the software then please leave a comment 🙂 

>>Download the installation CD here<< (9.54M)

The file above is zipped straight from the CD so is completely virus free.

    Hi,

    I was just moving some stuff about on my shelves and took down my retired Wavefinder to get at something else. I still have the box and all the original docs and disk.

    I decided to Google it to see if there is anyone still using one of these and learnt on Wikipedia that these will work with Windows XP SP3, so I’ve downloaded your file and am hoping that my Wavefinder will find a new lease of life on my old XP SP3 laptop.

    Many thanks.

    Let me know how you get on EricF. I wonder if it would run under Vista/Windows 7 using compatibility mode? The bits and pieces of my Wavefinder are probably all separated and scattered to the four corners of the house, never to be found again!

    I used to mend these about 10 years ago. They had a tendency to blow a regulator. I would buy faulty eBay ones, fix them and resell.

    Other than that, it was a good piece of kit. It was a shame that Psion did not update the drivers to work with later versions of Windows.

    hello! I was given this by an old lady who was clearing out her late husbands stuff (he was a old HAM radio operator) however the power supply didn’t come with it, does anybody what kind of power supply it needs so I can find an way round it? would love to see if it works!

    Many Thanks
    I had two in the attic but couldn’t find the drivers.
    I got mine working straight away.
    I spent the last two weeks commissioning two new DAB transmitters in south Wales. I might be able to use one of mine in work.
    Thanks again.
    Paul.

    Just to say I found my Psion Wavefinder in my attic all boxed. I tried to fire it up but looks like Stevenage is not a hotspot for DAB.

    I will try the driver on my Windows 7 laptop.

    At least the flashing globe still works. So cool!

    Very grateful, the move a few years back meant the disc went AWOl. Idiot spammer in the first post initially put me off from replying five months ago by the way. I hope you have his ip address for mailbomb purposes.
