Try replacing the cradle or if you can install Palm desktop on another computer and try synchronizing on it. This is usually a sign of a week cradle or COM port on your computer.

What is procedure to delete courses from the hand held devise? i have the SG4 Model. Thanks


GPS receiver units are designed to translate signalsreceived from a satellite into recognizable graphic information using mappingsoftware. These systems are dependent on the installed software, butlike all computers they can experience problems up to and including unexpecteddeletion of the software. Because of this, many GPS systems have providedsolutions to some of the most common problems.
Operating System Deletion
If the hand-held unit does not display any functionality when activated,first try restarting the system. If the unit is a hand-held GPS, try removingand then re-inserting the batteries to reset the system. If the system still displaysno operating system, contact a professional for service. GPS software can alsobe bundled or purchased as part of a more comprehensive device, such as aniPhone or other smart phone. In this instance, it is possible that the softwarewas deleted from the system during a sync with a computer. Try re-syncing thedevice with the computer and ensuring that the GPS application has beenselected to be loaded onto the unit. If this does not solve the problem, thesoftware may be corrupt. Delete the program from the computer and download itonce again to the hard drive. Then, re-sync the newly downloaded application toyour device.Update Deletion
Occasionally, an error in the download or an error insyncing with a GPS hand-held can cause updates such as operating systemadvances, bug fixes and new map information to be deleted or corrupted. If thisshould happen, re-download the update information and sync it with the GPSunit. If update information comes in the form of an SD or other data card, thecard itself may be corrupted. Contact Thanks.

You need to completely disassemble the hand held remote unit, remove the rubber push buttons and clean the contacts. Mine do this frequently. The contacts are black and will be slimey. I just use soapy water and a soft cloth to gently clean them. Be sure to dry them completely before reassembling. Also be sure you dont get any of the electronics wet.

If so much has happened to your handheld then the only thing left to be done is a reinstall of the firmware, as that is the only solution to a corrupt firmware because of the power glitch while it was doing something. The glitch has corrupted the firmware and thats how it needs a reinstall. Nothing serious but such things do happen i electronics.

Try right click on the Hot-Sync icon, on the Taskbar and select Custom then select Address book and change the Action to Synchronise the files. You might have to use Windows Explorer to view your contact. I'm not 100% sure about this one but try it anyway.

Hot Sync with desktop and laptop computers

it is possible but if I well understood u wanna hot sync with ur laptop calendar and contact from ur Tungsten E, (that is having updated data from ur office computer). you can in fact synchronize verything there with ur laptop, and make ur hand held over write ur whatever is in ur laptop, for this u need to install the PDS and go to the hotsync manager on ur system try, go to custom and and on the list of conduits go to contact and change the action to hh overwrite desktop, (do the same for calendar) DON"T FORGET TO CHECK THE OPTION : MAKE AS DEFAULT. U can of course disable the rest except the system conduit. Never forget to set the conduits u change to set as defaults. Like this, u must have always updated data on ur hand-held, for this, u need to keep synchronizing with ur office computer. good luck,
