HX4700 does a hard reset when car turns off power to 12V outlet

I have a HX4700 and use it for navigation (Navigon 4.0) in my car which is a new Volvo S40. When I turn of the cars ignition it takes approximatly 5 seconds until the power to the 12V outlet is turned of by the car. If the PDA is connected when this happens, it does a hard reset and everything is gone. If I disconnect it before the power is turned off, this does not happen... Has anyone experienced a similar problem or has any advice on this? Thanks.

HP told me that this is not really a problem of the PDA, but of the navigation software... Those guys told me that there will be a free of charge update to version 5.1 to cure these problems.

HP iPAQ hx4700 need default password


If you can't remember your passcode, you may have to do a hard reset(factory settings) if you have a sync folder on your computer, there is your backup. To do a hard reset: 1. Remove your iPAQ from the cradle, making sure that it's running on the internal battery power. 2. Use the stylus to press down the recessed reset button on the back or side of the iPAQ. 3. While the reset button is held down, press the On/Off button. 4. Release the reset button. When you press the On/Off button again, your iPAQ turns on and all your files are gone. To avoid repeating this major disaster in the future, you should back up your iPAQ files on your desktop PC. Activesync will generate another folder,and you will have to rename your pocket pc. But once your past that point, open both folders and drad and drop into the new folder. Hope this helps.

Hx4700 wont work after failed update on ROM v1.10


Try hard reset: pressing and holding the calendar and iTask buttons and doing a soft reset for 2 seconds.

Hard resetting a WM 5 HX 4700 is to press and hold the Contacts and Mail buttons and then doing a soft reset. The boot screen will popup with a message “To perform a clean reset, which will clear all data in memory, press the [Calendar] button”

If that fails, try upgrading to wm 6 or wm 6.1 then downgrading afterwards.

I've upgraded from wm2003SE to wm6.1 alkor rc2.2 rom.

I have hx4700


Try a hard reset, this is described on HP's troubleshooting guides on their website. If that fails, it's likely the unit is defective - check your warranty with the unit and hope it is in warranty. If so, return it to HP for repair. If not, get a quote on a repair and see if it's worth it. Good luck!

Outlook 2002 Reinstallation


The default e-mail client on pocketPC 2003 is the "inbox" which is merly a utility for retreiving & sending e-mail. There is no "outlook 2002" on pocket PC's. The Outlook 2002 installation cd comes with most iPaqs and is intended for your pc, not your ipaq.
