Question about HP iPAQ hw6515 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Access to com port settings

My Pocket PC was without a battery for months and after charging the battery and reloading software, I can no longer find the place for setting the com ports so I can use my TomTom GPS software. The SETTINGS option does not have any place to access the com port settings or baud rate. Where in tarnation is it? Manuals and the HP website do NOT say where it is. Knowing what to set it at is useless if you cannot find out where to set it.

You need to reformat and reinstall TOMTOM - You ONLY get the option after initial installation of the software - I don't know if it is possible to delete an individual file to achieve what you are asking - might be worth a note to TOMTOM technical help.

I have just installed my Uniden UDW20553 Video Surveillance System. I was under the impression that I would have remote access to view my cameras from anywhere in the world on my laptop. Have looked high...


The only solution I have found is using Remote Desktop Connection and running the Uniden application. On my Iphone I found that using Pocket Cloud Remote Desktop (RDP Itunes download application) works best. You must also download a free application named "Pocket Cloud Companion" on the PC your Uniden software is running. Pocket Cloud Companion must be running for connection to made through 3G, Edge or Wifi networks. Also, you have to configure your remote connections by using your PC's IP address rather then the name of your pc, particularly if making connection on 3G network.

IPaq rx3115 working like PC not Pocket PC, need to plugin always


You need to purchase a new removable battery for your RX
The removable batts usually only last about a year (like cell phone batteries).
Although it is showing 100% charge, the battery is not storing enough power to run the ipaq

The rx series uses 2 batteries, one is the removable one u can see/access when u remove the back cover. The other batt is a small round batt which stores the basic info for your system (so you don't lose your data when u swap out the removable battery).

This small (backup) batt is similar to the cmos battery on a laptop or pc.
You cannot easily replace this, as the unit needs to be disassembled to access this batt.
If you are tech-y (and brave), the replacement button batteries are sold on ebay for $9-12

Normally, if your removable batt is bad, you could still use your unit plugged in, and could
remove from AC power without losing data. Not the case if your replaceable batt is exhausted.
When both batteries are bad, you lose everything when u remove unit from AC power.

My workaround without having to disassemble unit:
Purchase and fully charge new removable batt (They have huge capacity ones available for like $15 - better than the original !).
Load up all your programs & settings the way you like.
Perform full backup to SD card (& also on PC via active sync - to be safe)
Now the only time you should lose your data (like hard reset) is if you allow the battery
to completely drain, in which case you can restore your backup.
If you purchase 2 removable batts, you can easily swapout without losing data if you
use the usb charge cable & leave ipaq plugged in while you change battery

Hope this helps

Shows Li-On battery charged when plugged into AC, shuts down when unplugged


Here is a palm article on the battery not holding charge-

http://kb.palm.com/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBCGI.EXE/,/
?St=42,E=0000000000826384196,K=1280,Sxi=19,Case=Obj(30029)

My battery loses its charge very quickly

Like all Lithium Ion batteries, the battery in your device will eventually wear out. If you charge your device fully but it loses power after a few hours (or sooner), it may be time to replace the internal battery.

Sounds like you already did this. Do you have someone you know who has the same battery you could try? Or try your battery in their device?


Also this site looks good -

Step #11

You can connect it via USB and let it charge that way a little while, then try charging it normally. It's called trickle charging-

Trickle charging
Some Palm devices have the ability to "trickle charge" from a USB port on a PC or Mac. This means that it receives a very small amount of charging from the USB port, even if it is not connected to its AC charger. If your device is capable of this function, the charging time will be significantly longer for a trickle charge (depending on the power rating of the PC USB port). However, the device may not charge at all on an unpowered USB hub (or for example off off a keyboard).

Internet?


Please note that when you want to use pocket (IE) browser of your PPC (pocket PC) phone; you need to ensure GPRS setting has been made in your phone.

For GPRS setting (Example: Airtel India network) please do the following steps.

Start --> settings --> Connections(tab) --> Connections(icon) --> under My ISP tap on "Add a new modem connection" --> enter connection name: airtel --> select a modem: Cellular Line (GPRS) --> access point name: airtelgprs.com --> leave blank on username, password & domain --> Finish.

If you are using different network (sim card) then you need to get "access point name" information from them.
