Summary: Was not the thing for me. I prefer my T: I wasn't expecting this one- and I got it from a local sale that was going on. IDK (I don't know) if I envisioned/exaggerated more of what it could do- but I am going to list it again- as it is something that will not work for me.
Summary: I had to buy a 'spares or repair' to get the items missing from original purchase. So far it seems to work okay but I have not had a chance to check out battery life yet. The PDA has good installation instructions within the unit but I have not yet worked out how to transmit details from one to...
Summary: The palm 505 has now become my new memory, at 60 I tend to forget things and with this product it stays in my pocket and reminds me when to take my medications and which ones I need at that time. It also helps me remember phone numbers and other numbers that I just can't remember.

Summary: I HAVE HAD 2 PALMS AND 1 PPC BUT THIS WAS THE BEST IT SEEMED TO BE NEW PRACTICALY THE BATT LIFE WAS GOOD .THE ONLY BAD THINGS WERE IT HAT NO DOCK OR STILUS BUT I WAS TOLD THAT IN THE DISCRIPTION. AND IT WORKS JUST AS I THOUGHT IT SHOULD.

Summary: I am having fun with the Palm M505. Unlike the Tungsten T I have, I can use all the older Palm software I have. I have it mated to a Magellan GPS companion. The basic GPS software works great. I have to play with the mapping software to see how it works for driving directions.
