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. It has a display that is big enough for my old eyes to see and being color does help. I do not think I can live without it now. It is like having a wife but with out the nagging.
Summary: Even though this is considered dated and lacks the versatility of newer models, I am pleased to use it for an address book, appointment setter, etc. It functions very well and communicateds easily with my computer. There are functions that I've yet to explore, but it does all I require, at present, for my needs.
Summary: I bought the Palm m505 a few days ago and was so tickled to get it in the mail to start adding my nursing programs. At first I was overwhelmed with all the parts and I had to get the new Vista program loaded from Palm to be able to sync it with my computer, but overall I would highly recommend this product to others.
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: The m505 is some piece of history! This unit has a metal body and a light weight plastic inner structure. very robust. The display is large. It lacks resolution so the curves you produce on the digitizer appear somewhat edgy on the display. But this is not a drawing board - it picks up hand writing without any problems, something which Apple's Newton lacked. It has as stylish cradle which supports the phone too tight so it hever bounces.
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. The color screen is nice. It makes an interesting photo album. You can do slide shows. While the resolution isn't spectacular, it is a big improvement from the key chain photo viewers.
Summary: It took me some doing and searching the Internet for instructions, but when I finally got this PDA loaded with information about geocaches, it became a valuable tool. It is great to be able to take it with me and to quickly reference information abut each cache I search for using cachemate. For the small price I paid in bidding on eBay, it is a big help.
Summary: My new years resolution was to be more organized with my business and not to forget special dates. I've never owned a PDA before so I needed something that would do the job without the extra bells and whistles. Purchasing the Palm M505, was a smart move on my behalf. I got what I wanted and at a killer price. I just got it and I'm almost done entering all my information and little notes.
Summary: I received my first brand-new Palm M505 as a graduation gift in 2001. I have been addicted ever since. Even though it's older technology, quite obsolete compared to anything out there now, it still does everything I need. When my original M505 broke, I've bought a replacement M505 on eBay, plugged it in, and it downloaded all the information backed up on my computer - I didn't lose a thing, and it almost was like I was never without it (except that I went crazy waiting...
