Comments on: Palm V Bridge Review

Palm has Plans for new products every 6 months according to their S-1 filing. So looks like I have six months to save my pennies! But, replacing all those peripherals, that's a different story. Well for $15 I can now use my Palm III accessories with my PalmVx with the Bridge. Read on for the full review.

Palm V Bridge to Palm IIIc?

Ina @ 2/28/2000 4:19:52 AM #
Well, what about those of us who have invested in Palm V stuff: GoType, TravelKit, 3COM modem, OmniSky modem. Will there be a reverse bridge to go from the PalmV/Vx to the color machines that seem to be built on the Palm III connectors.

Why can't Palm standardize on one set of connectors. The stuff above lists for over $500 in addition to an investment in Palm. I'd hate to throw all this away. And I don't like the idea of a tacky bridge, but will consider it if it preserves the utility of these add-ons. Resale of these peripherals will suck as they always do.

Thanks for listening.


"Clip On" attachment

I've found a method for making the Palm V bridge attach quite firmly to the bottom of the Palm V. It isn't exactly pretty, but it completely eliminates to tendancy of the Palm V to tip from side to side when balanced atop the bridge, as in when you use the bridge to connect to a GoType keyboard.

If you remove both the stylus and the Cover from the Palm V, you have a deep channel running the length of each side of the PV. It is possible to wrap an elastic band around the bottom of the little "tabs" on either side of the PV side of the Bridge, and then hook the elastic through the channels on the side of the PV, around the tope of the PV. This holds the bridge to the bottom of the PV quite securely.

He's right

Palm definitely needs to standarhize its units....

Palm V Bridge and Palm Modem

I'm having problems getting The Bridge to work with my 3Com Palm Modem. While everything else seems to work, my modem just doesn't want to initialize. Any clues? Thanks!
