1. The Palm III version is rechargeable and the Palm V version requires AAA batteries? Isn't this seriously backwards? Palm V users are used to recharging their units and Palm III users have stock in battery companies.

2. The desktop companion software is PC-only.

Sorry, Rand--I'll shop elsewhere. Pity--this story really excited me when I first saw it. :-(


Not so new idea...

The press release almost makes you think that this is something new. Its not. DeLorme has been doing this for a few years now with their Tripmate and "new" Earthmate GPS units.

There are also several other packages out there that do similar things.

Uh ... what about the PALM IIIc guys?!?!

Not only did they drop the ball on battery design, but it does NOT FIT the Palm IIIc ... only the IIIx ... so w/t/f ... why not put that on the BOX!!!
