When treated properly, your HP Jornada will be a reliable desktop PC
companion. Follow these tips to ensure long and trouble-free use:
•
Protect the screen. Pressing too hard on the touch screen may damage
the screen. To protect the screen, keep your HP Jornada in the carrying
pouch while you are not using it. You can also protect the screen with an
optional screen protector or a color cover. For more information, see “HP
branded accessories” in chapter 8.
12 | HP Jornada 520 Series User’s Guide
Use the stylus to tap the HP Jornada screen to avoid scratches or
damage to the screen. To clean the screen, use a small amount of
commercial glass cleaner sprayed on a soft cloth. Avoid spraying the
screen directly.
Be sure to turn off your HP Jornada before cleaning the touch screen.
•
Do not drop your HP Jornada. Dropping or jarring your HP Jornada can
cause damage to delicate components such as the display. Accidental
damage is not covered under the Hewlett-Packard express warranty.
•
Avoid radiated interference. Radiated interference from other electronic
equipment may affect the appearance of the display of your HP Jornada.
Removing the source of the interference will return the display to normal.
•
Avoid high temperatures. Your HP Jornada is designed to operate at
temperatures between 0 to 40 ºC (32 to 104 ºF). Subjecting the device to
temperatures outside this range may damage the unit or result in loss of
data. Be especially careful not to leave your HP Jornada in direct sunlight
or in a car where temperatures can rise to harmful levels.
8VLQJ\RXU+3-RUQDGDIRUWKHILUVWWLPH
Follow these steps to begin using your HP Jornada.

the dc jack on your Pocket PC.
Chapter 2 | Getting started | 13
2.
Reset your HP Jornada. Press the red Reset button on the back of
your Pocket PC.
3.
Follow the Welcome Wizard. The first time you start your HP

a few moments, the Welcome Wizard begins. The Welcome Wizard
presents a brief orientation to Windows for Pocket PC, helps you
align the touch screen, and prompts you to select your city and time
zone.
4.
Adjust the display. Before you begin, you may need to adjust the
contrast and brightness of the display to a comfortable level. Press
and hold the HP home menu hot key until HP settings appears, and
then move the sliders for each setting.

coverage, technical support, and information on upgrades, register
your HP Jornada at www.hp.com/jornada.

You can connect your HP Jornada to a desktop or notebook computer in three
ways:
•
Use a sync cable to connect to a serial port.
•
Use a serial cradle to connect to a serial port.
•
Use the infrared port on your Pocket PC (if the desktop or notebook
computer also has an infrared transmitter).
Each of these methods works with all models of the HP Jornada Pocket PC.
Serial sync cradle and additional sync cables are available as optional
accessories. Both serial and infrared connections work with Windows 95,
Windows 98, and Windows 2000. Windows NT supports serial connection, but
does not support connection by infrared.
Serial connections require a 9-pin serial communications (COM) port on your
desktop PC. If the 9-pin serial port is in use by another device, or if your
desktop PC has no 9-pin serial port, obtain an adapter from your computer’s
manufacturer.

The infrared port on your HP Jornada provides a convenient way to connect to
an IrDA-equipped PC without using a cable or cradle. Many notebook
computers have built-in infrared ports; however, you may need to install and
configure an infrared port on a desktop PC. To install the port, follow the
manufacturer’s instructions. More information about infrared drivers for
Microsoft Windows is available on the Windows for Pocket PC Web site at
www.pocketpc.com.

(VWDEOLVKLQJDSDUWQHUVKLS
When you install Microsoft ActiveSync, you are prompted to connect your HP
Jornada and create a partnership. A partnership enables your desktop PC to
recognize your HP Jornada when you connect and to remember the
synchronization and file conversion settings you set.
You can connect your HP Jornada to a desktop PC without establishing a
partnership; however, only Pocket PCs that have a partnership with a desktop
PC can synchronize information between the two computers.
Your HP Jornada can have partnerships with up to two desktop (or notebook)
PCs, for example, your home and office computers. If you regularly
synchronize your HP Jornada with both desktop PCs, you can ensure that
important files, contacts, and appointments are always up-to-date and identical
on all three computers.
Although you can establish partnerships with two desktop PCs, you can
synchronize e-mail messages with only one desktop PC.
A single desktop PC can have partnerships with many Pocket PCs or other
mobile devices. This is useful if you have more than one Windows-powered
device, or if several mobile professionals share a single desktop PC.

computer, or if you have already established a partnership with
another desktop PC, select two.
Set options for synchronization, including the types of files and
information you want to synchronize and whether to synchronize
automatically each time you connect.
If you choose to establish partnerships with two desktop PCs, the two desktop
PCs must be configured with the same synchronization settings. In addition,
both desktop PCs must use the same PIM program (for example, Microsoft
Outlook).
6\QFKURQL]LQJGDWD
Synchronization compares the data on your HP Jornada with the data on your
desktop PC and updates both computers with the most recent information.
You can synchronize any of the files on your HP Jornada with the
corresponding files on your desktop PC. For example
•
Keep Pocket Outlook data up to date by synchronizing your Calendar,
Contacts, and Tasks databases with Microsoft Outlook on your desktop
PC.
•
Synchronize Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel files between your
device and desktop PC. Your files are automatically converted to the
correct format.
•
Synchronize e-mail messages in your HP Jornada Inbox with e-mail
messages in Microsoft Outlook on your desktop PC.
•
Copy favorite Web site addresses* and any Web pages you have marked
for offline viewing in Microsoft Internet Explorer to your HP Jornada.
By default, ActiveSync synchronizes only Contacts, Calendar, Tasks, and your
Mobile Favorites. You can set synchronization options when you first establish
a partnership, or use ActiveSync options to turn synchronization on and off for
other files and information types.
* Modem must be purchased separately. Some Web sites/content may not be available.
38 | HP Jornada 520 Series User’s Guide
Control when synchronization occurs by selecting a synchronization mode. For
example, you can synchronize continually while your HP Jornada is
connected, or only when you choose the Synchronize command.
Select which information types are synchronized and control how much data is
synchronized. For example, you can choose how many weeks of past
appointments you want synchronized.
5HVROYLQJV\QFKURQL]DWLRQFRQIOLFWV
If the same item (for example an appointment or a task) has been modified on
both your HP Jornada and desktop PC, ActiveSync indicates that a
synchronization conflict has occurred.
When the Resolve items message appears in the ActiveSync window, click it
to display the Resolve Conflict dialog box. To resolve the conflict, you must
specify one of the items to replace.
You can resolve each conflict manually at the time of synchronization, or you
can resolve conflicts automatically, by setting a default option for conflict
resolution.

Services. If it uses Windows 95/98/Me, install and configure Dial-Up
Networking.
You must also ensure that ActiveSync is configured to allow a network
connection. By default, ActiveSync allows a network connection; however, to
confirm the setting or to enable connection if it has been disabled, follow the
procedure below.

the Internet, or retrieve files from a corporate network (LAN), whether you are
at home or on the road. This chapter describes
•
the several methods you can use to connect your HP Jornada to a
modem,* cellular phone, or network
•
the process of configuring your HP Jornada to connect to an Internet
service provider (ISP) or network
•
browsing the Web (or a corporate intranet) from your HP Jornada using

&RQQHFWLQJ\RXU+3-RUQDGD
Your HP Jornada gives you several options for connecting to a remote
computer. You can use an optional CompactFlash card modem, an infrared
modem, or a mobile phone. Each of these methods requires purchase of a
modem or adapter as an optional accessory. For more information about
compatible modems and accessories, visit the HP Jornada Web site at
www.hp.com/jornada/accessories.
&RQQHFWLQJZLWKD&RPSDFW)ODVKFDUGPRGHP Your HP Jornada Pocket PC supports a variety of Type I CompactFlash card
modems and network interface cards (NICs). Whether you use a CompactFlash card modem or CompactFlash NIC, the card must be a Type I
CompactFlash card. For a list of compatible CompactFlash cards, go to the
HP Jornada accessories page at www.hp.com/jornada/accessories.
Many NICs also require that you install a software driver. The card manufacturer must provide a software driver for the HP Jornada Pocket PC. Follow
the card manufacturer’s instructions for installing the card and configuring the
driver for use with your HP Jornada.
The driver for the Socket Low Power Ethernet CF+ card NIC is preinstalled on
your HP Jornada.
After you have installed and configured the card, the make and model of the
card will appear in the list of modems or the list of network adapters when you
create a new connection (see “Creating an ISP or network connection” later in
this chapter).
When you are ready to connect, connect the CompactFlash card modem to an
analog telephone line or a network connection using the appropriate cable.
Follow the card manufacturer’s instructions to attach the cable to the port on
the card.
Do not connect a CompactFlash card modem to a digital telephone line unless
it is specifically designed for use with a digital line.

You may be able to obtain a Type I CompactFlash connectivity kit from the
manufacturer of your phone, or from a third-party manufacturer. In either case,
the kit must be designed to work with the specific model of your phone, and
the manufacturer must provide a driver for use with the HP Jornada Pocket
PC.
After you have installed and configured the card, the make and model of the
card will appear in the list of modems or the list of network adapters when you
create a new connection (see “Creating an ISP or network connection” later in

To connect to a network or the Internet, you need an account with an ISP, an
account on your corporate network, or access permission to dial in to a
specific computer.
For each account, you will need a user name and password provided by the
ISP or account administrator. If you are connecting to a commercial ISP, you
will also need to know the dialup telephone number and IP and DNS
addresses (if required).
If you plan to use the account to send or receive e-mail messages directly
from your HP Jornada, you must also obtain the following information from
your ISP or account administrator:
•
a user name and password for your e-mail account (these may be
different than the user name and password you use to connect)
•
the name of the POP3 or IMAP4 server (for incoming messages)
•
the name of the SMTP server (for outgoing messages)
Chapter 4 | Connecting to the Internet | 49

By default, messages are displayed in one of four folders for each service you
have created: Inbox, Deleted (local), Outbox, and Sent. The Deleted (local)
folder contains messages that have been deleted on your HP Jornada, but are
still linked to messages on your e-mail server or desktop PC.
If you are using IMAP4, you may see a Deleted Items folder. This folder is for
messages deleted on the e-mail server.
The behavior of the Deleted (local) and Sent folders depends on the options
you have chosen. In the message list, tap Tools and then Options. On the
Message tab, select your options.
If you want to organize messages into additional folders, tap Tools, and then
New Folder to create new folders. To move or copy a message to another
folder, tap and hold the message in the message list, and then tap Move to or
Copy to on the pop-up menu.
Moving an e-mail message into a folder you create breaks the link between
the messages on your HP Jornada and the copy on your desktop PC or POP3
e-mail server. The next time you synchronize, the message may be deleted
from the Inbox folder on the mail server or desktop PC. This prevents you from
storing duplicate copies of an e-mail message, but it also means that you will
no longer have access to the e-mail messages you moved out of Inbox except
from your HP Jornada. If you have an e-mail account on an IMAP4 mail
server, the folders you create and the messages you move will be duplicated
on the e-mail server.

Manage power effectively.
•
Manage the memory on your HP Jornada.
•
Adjust settings for the display and sounds.
•
Use security features to protect your data.

Because the data and files you save on your HP Jornada are stored in RAM,
maintaining a continuous power supply to the HP Jornada at all times is
extremely important. If your HP Jornada runs out of power, all information you
have entered is lost. Although the Windows for Pocket PC operating system
and programs cannot be erased, any custom settings and programs you have
added are erased if you lose power.
Under typical usage conditions, your HP Jornada should operate for approximately 8 hours between charges. Some functions, such as listening to music
or using CompactFlash cards, use considerable power and may reduce this
time significantly.
You should respond as soon as possible when your HP Jornada displays a
dialog box warning of low power. If you continue to use your HP Jornada until
power reaches a critical low condition, a Battery very low message appears,
and the device shuts down automatically. You will be unable to use your
Pocket PC until you connect to external power for charging. Data will be
retained for up to 5 days.
Because your HP Jornada is charged automatically whenever it is connected
to ac power, simply connect the HP Jornada to ac power to recharge when the
power is low. While your HP Jornada is connected to ac power, the
Notification LED indicates the charging status:
•
Amber indicates that the battery is charging (connected to ac power).
•
Green indicates that the battery is fully charged.
=XLQNLT]QN[NVJRWRWPYX`N[

On the Start menu, tap HP settings. The remaining power is
displayed on a status bar at the bottom of the Settings tab.
Under certain conditions, the power status icon is displayed on the Command
bar in the Today screen. Simply tap the power status icon to open the Power
control panel.
Follow these tips to ensure the longest use of your HP Jornada between
charges:
•
Use the Power control panel to set your HP Jornada to turn off after a
short period of inactivity.
•
Use the Backlight control panel to set the backlight to dim after a short
period of inactivity.
Chapter 5 | Configuring your HP Jornada | 63

If you are playing music or using other functions that do not require the

The memory on your HP Jornada is allocated between storage memory and
program memory. Windows for Pocket PC automatically manages the
allocation between storage and program memory; however, in some situations
(such as when memory is low), it may not be able to automatically adjust the
allocation. If you receive a message stating that storage or program memory is
unavailable, try the following solutions.
,QFUHDVLQJVWRUDJHPHPRU\
You can try any or all of these solutions to increase storage memory:
•
Buy an optional Type I CompactFlash memory card, and move files from
internal memory to the card. (For more information on CompactFlash
cards, see “CompactFlash cards” in chapter 8.)
•
Delete unnecessary files.
•
Remove Web pages stored for offline viewing in Internet Explorer folders.
•
Remove programs you no longer use. See “Adding or removing
programs” later in this chapter.
•
Clear program memory. See “Increasing program memory,” below.
,QFUHDVLQJSURJUDPPHPRU\
You can try any or all of these solutions to increase program memory:
•
Use HP task switcher or the Memory control panel to stop programs you
are not currently using. In most cases, programs automatically stop to free
needed memory. However, in some situations, such as when a dialog box
is waiting for a response, the program may not be able to stop
automatically.
•
Clear storage memory as described in the preceding section. This will free
some storage memory so that it can be reallocated as program memory.
•
Disconnect the sync cable or remove your HP Jornada from the cradle,
remove the CompactFlash card (if installed), and reset your HP Jornada.
See “Resetting your HP Jornada” in chapter 9.

Jornada and the data it holds. You can set a password to protect your data,
set a reminder password, and keep a record of when anyone attempts to
access data on your HP Jornada.
If you enable password protection, you must enter your password each time
you turn on your Pocket PC. Or, you can set a short delay, so you do not need
to re-enter your password if you turn on your HP Jornada within a short period

IrDA-equipped PDA device. The data fields of your HP Jornada Contacts,
Calendar, and Tasks applications are mapped to the data fields on the PDA
device to allow capture of important PIM information. However, not all of the
data fields correspond between the two devices, so not all data can be
exchanged. Some notes on the features and characteristics of the field
mappings for exchanged data are listed below:
•
HP info exchange supports sending and receiving multiple contacts,
appointments and tasks.
•
A number of Pocket Outlook fields are not used (e.g. Children, Spouse),
because they are not used by other PDA devices or are not supported by
the v-card standard.
•
If the number of entries of important field types (e.g. phone numbers)
received exceeds the number of Pocket Outlook fields available to store
them, the extra entries will be placed in the Notes section of the item.
•
For standard Contact fields (which support only single-line text), multiline
text on PDA devices is converted into single-line text, and all CR/LF pairs
converted to spaces. All information is retained.
•
Your HP Jornada treats Business Cards received from a PDA device as
contacts.
•
Contents marked as ”private” in other PDA devices are not sent to your
HP Jornada.
•
Memos received from a PDA device are stored as text files in the My
Documents folder of your HP Jornada. The received memos may be
renamed so that no existing memos in your HP Jornada will be
overwritten. (You cannot send a memo from your HP Jornada to a PDA
device.)

Occasionally, you may need to reset your HP Jornada; for example, you may
reset after you restore data from your desktop PC or when the operating
system stops responding. Resetting your HP Jornada is similar to restarting
your desktop PC. It restarts the operating system and preserves any saved
data, but you will lose any unsaved data. Some user-configurable HP settings
may not be saved when you reset your HP Jornada.
Reset after restoring data from a backup file or when the HP Jornada appears
to be “frozen” or “locked up.”
When you reset, you lose unsaved data in all open documents or programs. Use

In some cases, such as when your HP Jornada does not respond after being
reset or when you forget your password, you may need to restore your HP
Jornada to the factory default settings. This erases all data you have entered,
including all files, system settings, and programs you have installed.
To ensure the safety of your information should it be necessary to restore the
factory defaults, you should regularly back up your data to your desktop PC
(using ActiveSync) or to a CompactFlash card (using the HP backup
application). For more information on backing up data, see “Backing up and
restoring data” in chapter 3.
Restoring the factory default settings erases all files, programs, and data you
have entered. You can restore only data that has been backed up to your

Using Character Recognizer, you can write characters directly on your HP
Jornada screen with your stylus, just as you would on a piece of paper. The
characters you write are translated into typed text. Use Character Recognizer
anywhere you want to enter text; for example, to write a note or to fill in fields
in a dialog box.
The default writing mode for Character Recognizer is lowercase (Jotcompatible) mode. In this mode, you write characters in lowercase. The chart
at the end of this appendix contains examples of how to write characters in
lowercase mode. You can also choose to write in uppercase (Graffiticompatible) mode. In this mode, you write characters in uppercase. If you
prefer to write in uppercase mode, tap Uppercase Mode in Options on the
input method menu. Whether a letter appears in uppercase or lowercase when
it is converted to typed text depends on where in the Input panel you write it,
not on the mode you have selected.
The Character Recognizer Input panel is divided into three writing areas.
Letters written in the left area (labeled ABC) create uppercase letters, and
letters written in the middle area (labeled abc) create lowercase letters. Use
the right area (labeled 123) for writing numbers, symbols, special characters,
and punctuation.
120 | HP Jornada 520 Series User’s Guide
The following chart is a partial display of the characters you can write while in
lowercase mode (the dot on each character is the starting point for writing).
Remember that even though you write a letter in its lowercase form, the case
of the text that is displayed depends on where you write the letter. For
example, if you write a lowercase “a” in the ABC area, an uppercase “A” is
displayed on the screen.
