Non-Garmin GPSr Hi Guys I'm trying to use my Palm E2 + non-Garmin BT GPSr for navigation. I've installed Garmin Que software to my palm E2 but it does not work with my BT GPRs. I understand GPSproxy or GPSgate software can help interface both but only waorks for WM or PPC not for Palm OS. Do you guys have any solutions to this. Thanks

Garmin software will only work with Garmin hardware. Garmin does not use the standard NEMA protocol for GPS output, but their own. Also their software is tied to their hardware by a unit id, which require an unlock code in order for the maps to function.

Palm is non responsive. It won't turn off.

Take the protective cover back off then try resetting it if needed. If the cover is not the right size or isn;t on in the right place it will do this. Usually it will just be one corner that gets stuck under the frame edge and then the digitizer pad thinks that you are holding down the stylus there and locks up after a while. Or it flips pages and so on.

After changing the Sync procedure to BT due to 64-bit problem with cable (new computer), the E2 had a message to tap the soft button and it would hard reset. It has tried to reset for the last 16 hours....

Not resolved yet. I have my files archived and have downloaded and installed the 64-bit desktop and synch manager. I set up the BT synch and ran it. I'm still working through the apps that may have triggered the infinite reset loop. I hope it's not the age of the E2 and compatibility with later software. Thoughts?

My Palm tungsten E2 hand held PDA is totally frozen and locked up

Best thing to do here is to remove any memory cards etc.. and do a hard reset - seems like soft reset will or has not worked...

Press and hold the power button - keep it pressed and gently press the reset button on the back of the handheld.
Wait for the Palm Powered logo to appear and release the power button.
You should get a message warning about erasing all data. Press up on your 5-way navigator to reset.

This will erase all data inlcuding user information from the device, but synchronizing should get it all back - but you will loose anything that was not recently sync'd

good luck

Can Palm TX, E2 and z22 all use the same program

You might just have to upgrade the desktop software to work with the TX.  You can keep your names and addresses but you have to check with each program to see if there compatible or not since the TX uses Palm OS 5.  Most of the software available today is written for that operating system.
I don't believe Palm is even supporting the E2 anymore.

Error 1316 - installation failure

Have you uninstalled the previous version of Palm Desktop?

Do you have more than 1 profile on your computer? Sometimes multiple profiles can make things difficult is software is installed logged in as one and then you try to install/uninstall as another profile.

Are you installing Palm desktop from a disk?

Try this file from palms site -

Palm M515 and compatibility with Vista Home Premium

I was having a similar problem with my M515.  I had originally installed the Palm Desktop from my CD, which was an older version.  When I totally uninstalled the old version and installed the newer version from the Palm website I was able to do a successful sync.  I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate and Palm Desktop version 4.1.4
