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: 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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
