IPAQ hw6515 reboots by itself

My Ipaq hw6515 reboots or turns itself off every so often.It tends to occur when i'm using my GPS or when accessing my excel application intermittently. This seems to happen even when the battery power is 75%. It is occuring at a more frequent interval. The problem gets fixed (temporarily) when I sync using the docking station.

I had same problem.
Culprint was in the back cover.

Above SIM holder is a hidden switch what will connect the backup battery when the main battery is removed.
Small hook (high up) in the cover will trigger the switch. When cover get loose the switch will change it's position.

I put small piece of shrinking tube in it what will extend it 0.5 mm. That did the trick. No more unscheduled reboots.

There is a solution - jam paper in the top right hole and force the dreaded microswitch fully closed. This lets the Ipaq think the rear panel is on and it can fire up.

This seems to be a common issue with the 6515 (there is a dedicated forum about it on the Cingular/ATT support forum website). there doesn't seem to be any particular solution. more a faulty design.

Gps wont start

The ipaq requires a GPRS connection to download and refresh its GPS files every 2 days. Check the GPS symbol at the bottom right corner of the screen. It has to be blue. If it is grey, the GPS files need to be refreshed. Hp recommends MapAsia and it works, though the landmarks are not correct. The roads are ok. I do not know about diginav.

Ipaq with GPS reciver

I think you should contact the company that makes the GPS and ask them if their software (drivers) will work with the Pocket PC you have and the operating system it runs.

GPS...

Do you have sufficient memory on your iPAQ? Check your memory settings, also check running programs tab, maybe you have too many programs still running in the background causing the latency. Try a soft reset (stops all running programs in the background) or end task on them, then see if it still lags.
