INTRO: Based on “Time v2.1″ by Meta Sektion, additional mixing by James Kendrick.

HOSTS: David Ciccone, James Kendrick and Kevin C. Tofel

James is looking for some GPS functionality for his Treo 700w. Dave has some thoughts on CoPilot Live from ALK and a mount from Arkon.
Speaking of GPS, Verizon Wireless introduced the Motorola V325 with VZNavigator location-based services.
Dave reminds us not to wait for software to tether your Treo 700w as an EVDO modem. Get it while you can!
Ellis Z. sends us an e-mail about the Treo 700w and wants to know if we can recommend a Windows Mobile 5.0 GSM phone with a QWERTY keyboard. Our recommendations include the iMate KJam and the HP IPAQ 6515.
Freeware of the day: ActiveSync Toggle from Micrologics.
Roundtable on why ActiveSync can’t get Tasks from an Exchange server without SP2.

  1. Gents, regarding PDAnet, I heard from a Verizon Wireless employee in Orange County, CA that Verizon is wise to the PDAnet software program, and they are soon going to “fix” their systems such that PDAnet will no longer work. I don’t know how they would do that though. Are you guys hearing anything like that?

  2. Hi Matt. I blogged about it on jkontherun today. I haven’t heard but I’ve been warning this would happen since Verizon announced the $15 per month “service” they will be unveiling.

  3. Gentlemen,

    Be careful when it comes to CoPilot. It’s maps are not NavTeq or TeleAtlas and have been known to be inaccurate.

    As far as CP 6′s routing logic, you may want to check out the following:


    As far as BT receivers, I recommend any receiver that uses the SIRF III chipset. I have a Globalsat 338 with SIRF III and the lock-on and range of the receiver is amazing. I can even get locks onto up to 12 satellites indoors! :)

    As far as clips is concerned, take a look at ProClip. The great thing about proclip is that you buy a clip and holder so that if you ever change your device, you can just buy a rather inexpensive holder for the device you have.

    Check it out here:


    I mentioned in my last post, that I highly recommend a commerical tool called SKTools. It’s the Swiss Army of WM tools. The reason I mention this again is that the newest version of the app (v2.3.24) included a small .exe file that when run releases used memory. On my WM5 device (k-jam), each time I run it, I get on average of 800k to over 1mb of memory released. I can imagine that this would be an advantageous app for Treo 700w.

    Great Podcast guys.
