The m500 series Keyboard comes with version 1.5 of the software so this isn't new for it.

Anyone know what this new driver does as far as new features/fixes? Palm site seems to be a little sparse on details.

The driver does include an option for the functionality of the tab key when typing, ie whether it is used to make a space like in a word processor or to move to the next field, like in a database. However, since I never really explored the last driver's options, I don't know if that's new or not. I think it was just make to address bugs. I guess all I care about is my ability to turn it on and forget about it, which is what makes the keyboard/driver such a great product.

Yes, it alos seems to be faster that the previous version and the repeat key function now seems to work without pauses (try using the up/down arrows to see what I mean). I've been using the upgrade for about a week now and it runs just fine on my Vx (OS 2.5.2).

What the update does

One of my friends says it makes it so you can leave "keyboard enabled" checked and it won't pause every 5 seconds like it used to, which was really annoying for games. Especially back when the really old Keyboard application crashed every other time you unchecked "keyboard enabled".
That was on a Palm IIIxe. I used to have a Palm IIIx and keyboard, but I sold my keyboard when i got my m505.
and BTW, either I've gone seriously crazy or PalmTracker has been around for a long time.
