Chapter 1 Introduction
Introduction: Calibration and Brightness
STARTING YOUR HANDHELD AND CALIBRATING THE SCREEN
The first time you start the iQue® handheld, setup instructions appear on-screen. These instructions include a calibration screen,
or digitizer. Calibration aligns the internal circuitry of the handheld with its touch-sensitive screen so your handheld can detect the
task you want to perform when you tap an element on the screen. If you notice that the handheld does not respond properly when
you touch the stylus on the screen, you may need to calibrate the screen again.
To calibrate your screen again:
1. Tap the Applications Launcher (Home) icon, and then tap Prefs.
2. In the pick list in the upper right corner of the screen, tap Digitizer.
3. Follow the on-screen instructions, tapping the screen where indicated.
USING THE MULTI-LANGUAGE FEATURE
If your handheld has the multi-language feature, you will be prompted to select a language once you have calibrated the digitizer.
WARNING: If the language you choose on your handheld does not match the language you chose when you
installed you Palm™ Desktop software, you could suffer data loss. If you are not sure, insert the Setup CD and
re-install the Palm Desktop software.
WARNING: In order to change to another language, you have to perform a hard reset, which will erase all
data on your handheld. If there is data on your handheld that you need to save, perform a HotSync® operation
before you change languages.
To select the language on your iQue 3200:
1. Tap your language choice to highlight it, then tap OK. A confirmation screen reminds you that this setting must
match the language setting your Palm Desktop software.
2. If you select Yes to change to a language other than English, the handheld will reset.

Introduction: Performing a Reset
CLEANING THE TOUCH PANEL SCREEN
To clean the touch panel of the iQue 3200, wipe the surface gently with a soft, lint-free cloth. The cloth may be used either dry,
or dampened (not wet) with a mild detergent solution or with Ethanol.
WARNING: Never use acidic or alkaline detergents, or organic solvents such as paint thinner, acetone, toluene, xylene, propyl alcohol or kerosene on the touch panel.
RESETTING YOUR IQUE®
You may need to perform a reset if your handheld no longer responds to the buttons or the screen. A soft reset allows your
handheld to get a fresh start, similar to rebooting a PC. All records and entries are retained after a soft reset.
To perform a soft reset:
1. Using the reset tip tool (that may be threaded into the head of your stylus) or an unfolded paper clip (or similar object
without a sharp tip), lightly press the Reset button inside the hole on the back panel of your handheld.
Reset Button

Stylus
A hard reset will erase all records and entries stored in your handheld. Never perform a hard reset unless a soft reset does
not correct your problem. When you perform your next HotSync® operation, you can restore any data that you previously
synchronized to your computer.
To perform a hard reset:
1. With the unit powered off, use the reset tip tool to gently press and release the Reset button.
2. Press and hold down the power button until the Palm Powered™ logo is displayed.
3. When the Palm Powered™ logo is displayed, release the Power button.
4. When a message appears on the handheld screen warning that all data stored on the handheld is about to be erased,

Introduction: Using Menus
Using Menus and Menu Commands
Menus on your handheld are easy to use and work the same way in all applications. Menu bars and manual commands differ
based on the application and the area of the application in which you’re working. For example, in the Memo Pad, the Memo List
screen and the Memo screen display different menus.
Menu commands for each application are described in the corresponding application’s chapter, with the exception of the Edit
menu. For information on Edit menu commands, see “Using the Edit Menu” in Chapter 5.
Most menu commands have an equivalent Graffiti® 2 command stroke, which is similar to keyboard shortcuts used to execute
commands on computers. To use Graffiti 2 menu commands, menus must be closed.
To display a menu bar and choose a command:
1. Do one of the following:
• Open an application (such as the Date Book); then tap the Menu icon. Select the desired command from the
menu.
• Tap the inverted tab in the upper left corner of the screen. Tap the desired command from the menu.
• In the text input area of your device’s screen, drag a diagonal line from the lower left to upper right to display the
Command toolbar. The command bar displays for approximately 4 seconds.
2. Tap the icon that represents the command you want, or enter the shortcut for the command in the text input area
below the Command toolbar. For example, to choose Select All in the Edit menu, draw the Graffiti 2 command stroke
in the text area to display the Command toolbar and then draw the letter S. Note that if you wait more than three
seconds to draw the shortcut letter, you will have to redraw the Graffiti 2 command stroke to redisplay the Command
toolbar.

Introduction: Palm™ Desktop Software
PALM™ DESKTOP SOFTWARE
Palm Desktop software includes the same main applications as your iQue® handheld: Address Book, Date Book, To Do List,
Memo Pad and desktop e-mail connectivity. You can use the HotSync® feature of this software to back up and exchange data
between your handheld and your computer.
It’s a good idea to frequently back up your data in case something happens to the data on your iQue handheld. Changes you
make on your iQue handheld or Palm Desktop software appear in both places after you synchronize.
Using the Palm Desktop software, you can do the following:
• Work with your iQue handheld applications on your computer. Palm Desktop software duplicates the Date Book, Address
Book, To Do List, and Memo Pad applications on your handheld, so that you can view, enter, and modify any data stored on
your handheld.
• Back up the data stored on your handheld with HotSync technology and synchronize the data on your Palm Desktop
software. Synchronization is a one-step procedure that ensures your data is always safe and up-to-date. See “Exchanging and
Updating Data using HotSync Operations” in Chapter 9 for more information.
• Import and export data, so you can easily transfer data from other desktop applications into any of your main applications.
See “Importing Data” in Chapter 2 for more information.
• Print your Date Book, Address Book, To Do List, and Memo Pad information on any printer.
Connecting the Cradle
The cradle that comes with your iQue handheld enables you to synchronize the information on your iQue handheld with the
Palm Desktop software using HotSync technology.
To connect your cradle on a PC-compatible computer:
1. Plug the cable from the iQue handheld cradle into an available USB port on your computer.
NOTE: Your iQue handheld requires a dedicated port. It cannot share a port with an internal modem or other
device. If you are unsure about the exact location of the USB port on your computer, refer to the manual supplied with the computer.

Upgrade Information
If you do not own another Palm™ Powered device, you may go on to “Installing Palm Desktop Software” on the next page. If
you already own Palm Powered device, Garmin recommends that you install the version of Palm Desktop Software that comes with
your new handheld into the same folder as your current Palm Desktop software. All of your data is preserved when you install the
new version in the same folder as the previous version. If you use another Personal Information Manager (PIM) such as Microsoft®
Outlook, you still must install the most recent HotSync® Manager and conduit software for your PIM from the Setup CD that came
with your new handheld. You can perform HotSync operations on your new device in exactly the same way as you did on your old
handheld, allowing you to quickly synchronize your existing data with your new handheld.
NOTE: If you used security features (password protection, for example) on your old Palm Powered device,
you must upgrade to the most current desktop. The method of storing passwords has changed with the latest
release of the desktop. Therefore, your password-protected information will not be synchronized if you do not
upgrade.
To upgrade your handheld:
1. Synchronize your old handheld with your old Palm Desktop software to ensure that the latest information from your
handheld is on your desktop computer.
2. (Optional) To prevent data loss, go to the folder that stores the Palm Desktop software, copy the folder and its contents, rename it (for example, Palm Backup), and store the copy outside the Palm Desktop software folder.
3. Follow the instructions in “Installing Palm Desktop Software” on the following page. Make sure you install the new
software in the same folder as the old software.
4. During iQue installation, when you are asked which user name you wish to use to perform your HotSync operation,
select New. Create a unique user name that you can easily differentiate from your previous handheld’s user name.
Each handheld must have a unique name in order to prevent complications and unexpected results during HotSync
operations.
5. Place your new handheld in the cradle and press the HotSync button. If the Select User dialog box appears, select
your new user name.
NOTE: If you customized the modem setup on your old handheld, you must re-enter the modem initialization
string. Any passwords that you set on your old handheld are not restored during this HotSync operation, and
will need to be re-assigned. Records you previously marked Private remain marked Private but you need to reenter a password on your new handheld.

ENTERING DATA USING GRAFFITI 2 HANDWRITING SOFTWARE
You can use Graffiti 2 strokes to create letters, numbers, punctuation, and symbols. The Graffiti 2 writing strokes include all
letters, numbers, and symbols found on a standard keyboard.
Learning to Write Graffiti 2 Characters
With only a few minutes of practice, you’ll find it easy to enter accurate text and numbers using Graffiti 2 writing strokes.
Graffiti 2 handwriting is new to this Palm Powered™ model. The strokes are different from those used with the handwriting
software found on earlier Palm Powered handhelds. For example, some characters can be formed using a variety of letter shapes,
and some characters are formed using more than one stroke to form a single character.
The Graffiti 2 demo shows how to use the handwriting software. The first time you turn on your handheld or perform a hard
reset, the Welcome application will automatically guide you through the setup process. When you complete setup, the iQue® 3200
invites you to learn how to use the handwriting software.
You should try the demo if Graffiti 2 is new to you. After you view the Welcome application the first time, a Graffiti 2 Demo
icon will appear on the Applications Launcher screen. Tap on this icon to view the demo at any time.
TIP: When you reach the Stroke Lookup screen of the demo (shown below), use the pick list to view the wide
variety of characters that you can make. As you tap a character, you will see an animation of the strokes used
to form that character.
2.2
Chapter 2 Entering Data
Entering Data: Graffiti® 2
General Guidelines for Graffiti 2 Writing
Follow these guidelines to learn and use Graffiti 2 writing strokes successfully:
• To achieve 100% accuracy, practice drawing characters exactly as they appear in the tables later in this chapter.
• The heavy dot on each shape indicates where to start the stroke. Some characters have similar shapes, but different starting
and ending points. Always start the stroke at the heavy dot. (Do not draw the heavy dot; it is there only as a guideline.)
• The Graffiti 2 writing strokes for letters closely resemble letters of the standard English alphabet, both upper and lower case.
Most characters require only a single stroke. When you lift the stylus from the text input area, your handheld recognizes and
displays the text character immediately.
For multi-stroke characters, a temporary character is displayed after the first stroke, to show that the stroke was recognized.
For example, after the first vertical stroke of “t”, a temporary ”l” is shown. There is a short time delay, during which the
second stroke must be drawn. Otherwise the temporary stroke is recorded.
NOTE: Rather than making uppercase letters by using the Shift stroke, uppercase letters are made in the center
of the text input area. This will be discussed in more detail later.
• The text input area is divided into two parts, one for writing lowercase letters and one for writing numbers. The small marks
at the top and bottom of the text input area define the division line. To have your handheld recognize letters and numbers,
you must begin letter strokes on the left side, and number strokes on the right side of the text input area. Uppercase letters
are formed by writing across the division line.
Write lowercase letters here
Write numbers here
Write uppercase letters across the division line

2.3
Entering Data: Graffiti® 2
To write Graffiti 2 letters:
1. Tap the screen where you want to write text, for example, on a line next to a time in the Date Book.
Blinking cursor
NOTE: A blinking cursor must appear on-screen above the Graffiti 2 writing area before you can begin writing
text.
2. Use the tables on the following pages to find the stroke shape for the letter you want to write. For example, the
stroke shown below creates the letter n.
Lift stylus here
Start stroke at heavy dot
3.
4.
5.
6.
You use the same shape to create both the lowercase letter in the left hand side of the text input area, and the uppercase letter across the division line.
Position the stylus in the left hand side of the text input area.
Start your stroke at the heavy dot, and draw the stroke shape as it appears in the tables.
Lift the stylus from the screen at the end of the stroke shape.
Your handheld recognizes your stroke immediately and displays the letter at the on-screen insertion point. As soon as
you lift the stylus from the screen, you can begin the stroke for the next character you want to write.
Graffiti 2 Tips
When using Graffiti 2 writing, keep the following tips in mind:
• For greater accuracy, draw letters with large strokes; strokes that nearly fill the text input area are easily interpreted.
• To delete characters, set the insertion point to the right of the character you want to delete, and draw the Backspace stroke (a
line from right to left) in the text input area.
• Write at natural speed. Writing too slowly can produce errors.
• Do not write at a slant. Keep vertical strokes parallel to the sides of the text input area.
• When letters and numbers can be written using two different strokes, use the one that’s easiest for you.
• Press firmly.

The Graffiti 2 Alphabet
Draw Graffiti 2 letters according to the following alphabet.
Writing Capital Letters
Graffiti 2 writing automatically capitalizes the first letter of a new record or sentence. To write additional capital letters, use the
same character stroke used for a lowercase letter, but write across the division line.
Write uppercase letters across the division line
Writing Numbers
To write numbers using Graffiti 2 strokes, draw in the right side of the text input area. Draw numbers using the following
strokes.
Writing Punctuation Marks and Other Special Characters
Using Graffiti 2 writing, you can create any punctuation symbol and special character available on any standard keyboard.
The period and comma punctuation marks can be written on either side of the text input area (the letter or number side). Other
common punctuation marks can be written on one side of the text input area according to the chart below (in general, the more
frequently used punctuation is on the left side).
Chapter 2 Entering Data
2.5
Entering Data: Graffiti® 2
Writing Accent Marks
When writing letters with accent marks, first write the letter stroke on the left side (or in the center for uppercase letters) of the
input area. Then quickly write the accent stroke on the right side of the input area. The accent strokes appear in the following
illustration.
Writing Symbols and other Special Characters
Symbols and other special characters can be written using the Shift command. When you make a vertical stroke from the
bottom to the top in the text input area, the Shift indicator arrow appears in the lower right corner of the screen. While this
arrow is visible, you can make the punctuation shift characters shown in the following illustration. Once the arrow goes away, the
punctuation mark appears.
TIP: Using an additional Shift stroke to finish writing the character (as shown in the demo) is optional, but will
make the character appear more quickly.
Draw punctuation and symbols using the punctuation shift command and the following strokes:
Note that the punctuation characters are repeated as punctuation shift characters, where they can be entered on either side of
the text input area. Even though this requires an additional shift stroke, you may find it more convenient, since you don’t have to
remember on which side of the input area to make the stroke.
TIP: Samples of the character strokes are available in the Graffiti® 2 Help file. To view the Help file, use the
full-screen pen stroke, dragging the stylus from the text input area to the top of the screen. Note that the accented characters appear on a Punctuation Shift screen, but do not use the Shift command. To write uppercase
accented characters, write the letter across the division mark, just as you would do with an ordinary letter.

Using Graffiti 2 Gestures
Gestures are editing commands, such as cut, paste, and the ShortCut command which will be explained in the next section. To
use gestures, draw the following strokes:
Using Graffiti 2 ShortCuts
Graffiti 2 ShortCuts let you quickly and easily enter commonly used words or phrases. ShortCuts are similar to the Glossary or
Autotext features of some word processors. Graffiti 2 writing comes with several predefined ShortCuts. You can also create your
own, for any words, letters, or numbers.
You can create ShortCuts, with up to 45 characters, using the ShortCut preferences. For example, you could create a ShortCut
for your name or for the header of a memo. All ShortCuts you create appear on the list in the ShortCut Preferences screen, are
available in any of your handheld applications, and are backed up on your computer when you perform a HotSync® operation.
Your handheld includes the following predefined Graffiti 2 ShortCuts for common entries:
• ds—Date stamp
• ts—Time stamp
• dts—Date/time stamp
• me—Meeting
• br—Breakfast
• lu—Lunch
• di—Dinner
To use a ShortCut, draw the ShortCut stroke followed by the ShortCut character or characters. When you draw the ShortCut

Chapter 4 Using Basic Applications
Date Book: Scheduling Events
Tips for Scheduling Repeating or Continuous Events
Keep the following in mind when scheduling repeating or continuous events:
• If you change the start date of a repeating event, your handheld calculates the number of days you moved the event. Your
handheld then automatically changes the end date to maintain the duration of the repeating event.
• If you change the repeat interval (e.g., daily to weekly) of a repeating event, past occurrences (prior to the day on which you
change the setting) are not changed, and your handheld creates a new repeating event.
• If you change the date of an occurrence of a repeating event (e.g., from January 14 to January 15) and apply the change to all
occurrences, the new date becomes the start date of the repeating event. Your handheld adjusts the end date to maintain the
duration of the event.
• If you change other repeat settings (for example, time, alarm, private) of a repeating event and apply the change to all
occurrences, your handheld creates a new event. The start date of this new event is the day on which the setting is changed.
Past occurrences (prior to the day of the change) are not changed.
• If you apply a change to a single occurrence of a repeating event (e.g., time), that occurrence no longer shows the Repeat
icon.
Rescheduling Events
You reschedule events using the Details option in the Date Book. You can also use the Details option to convert untimed events
into timed events.
To reschedule an event:
1. Tap the event you want to reschedule.
2. Tap Details.
3. To change the time, tap the Time box, select a new time, and then tap OK.
4. To change the date, tap the Date box, select a new date, and then tap OK.
Adding Address Book Information and Attaching a Location to an Event
You can add a name, address, and telephone number to an event using the Phone Lookup option. For instructions, see “Using
Phone Lookup” in Chapter 5. For information on attaching a location to an event, please refer to the Que Applications Guide.

Purging Records
Over time, as you use Date Book and the To Do List, you may accumulate records that are no longer useful. For example, events
that occurred months ago remain in the Date Book, and completed To Do List items remain in the list.
Outdated records take up memory on your handheld, so it’s a good idea to remove them by using Purge. If you think Date Book
or To Do List records might prove useful later, you can purge them from your handheld and save them in an archive file.
Purging is not available in Address Book or Memo Pad, so records from these applications must be deleted manually.
To purge a record:
1. Open the application from which you want to purge records.
2. Choose from the following options:
• Tap the Menu icon, open the Record menu, and then tap Purge. A confirmation dialog box appears.

Attention Manager
Chapter 6: Using the Attention Manager
Many applications (such as Date Book and Clock) want to get your attention with some sort of alarm. Attention Manager allows
you to conveniently manage all of these notifications in one place. Appointments and messages can stack up while you are away
from your device. Attention Manager lets you view them from a single list, where you can selectively dismiss or follow up on each
event.
Applications will signal for your attention at two different levels: insistent and subtle. Each is discussed in detail in this Chapter.
INSISTENT ALARMS
Insistent applications open a Reminders dialog screen, and may play a sound, flash an LED, or vibrate, depending on your
hardware configuration. Alarms continue until you snooze or dismiss them. If the sound can be interrupted, you can tap anywhere
on the screen, or push any button to silence it. Attention Manager will always open immediately when new insistent alarms are
posted.
Using the Reminder Dialog Screen
The Reminder dialog screen has three buttons for responding to an alarm:
• OK: Makes the reminder go away, with no further notification.
• Snooze: Switches to the application that was running when the alarm went off, and returns to the Reminder dialog screen
after five minutes. You can go back to the Reminder dialog screen right away by tapping on the blinking indicator in the
upper left corner of the screen. For more information, see “Understanding the blinking alarm indicator” below.
• Go To: Switches to the application that created the alarm, and shows the record that caused the alarm, although you may
have to navigate within the application. There is no further notification.

Attention Manager
Using the Reminders List Screen
The Reminders dialog screen changes to a list of items that require your attention under two insistent alarm conditions:
• When a second application attempts to get your attention and the first has not been dismissed or snoozed.
• When a first application makes a second attempt and the first has not been dismissed or snoozed.
Each listed reminder contains the date and time of the event. Depending on the application displaying the reminder, you may
see an icon representing the application, and up to two lines of text.
Tapping on the text or icon will “Go To” that item and delete the event from the Reminders list screen.
Tapping in the check box will clear that item, similar to a To Do list item. The Attention Manager will draw a line through the
text lines, pause for a moment, and them remove the item from the list, although the original data remains in the application.
The Reminders list screen displays three buttons that are used to respond to all of the items in the list:
• Done: If the Reminders list appeared because of more than one insistent alarm, tapping Done closes the Reminders list
screen, although the events will remain in the application that created them. The Reminders list screen will not appear again,
unless you tap the blinking alarm indicator in the menu bar.
• Snooze: Puts the Reminders list screen to sleep for five minutes. After this time interval, the Reminders list screen is
displayed again. You can go directly to the Reminders list screen without waiting, by tapping on the blinking alarm
indicator. For more detail, see “Understanding the blinking alarm indicator” below.
If the Reminders list appeared after you tapped the Snooze button, then tapped the blinking alarm indicator, then tapped the
Done button, the reminder will continue to snooze. For more detail, see “Understanding the Blinking Alarm Indicator” on the
following page.
• Clear All: Removes all of the items from the list, but does not close the Reminders screen. Tap this button to erase a list of
events that have passed.

SUBTLE ALARMS
Some applications provide a visual, and optionally audible indication, but do not otherwise disrupt your work flow. Subtle
alarms do not display a Reminders screen. Instead, a blinking indicator will flash in the upper left corner of the title bar (of
applications that allow it) when an alarm is present.
Understanding the Blinking Alarm Indicator
A blinking alarm indicator appears in the upper left corner of the screen in the menu bar (of applications that allow it) under the
following conditions:
• While viewing a Reminders dialog screen, you tap the Done or the Snooze button
• A subtle alarm is present
The indicator appears in three different states:
• Off: The indicator is not shown at all when the list is empty.
• Blinking, two states: When the list is not empty but there are no new items, then the “star” indicator will blink on and off
until the list has been emptied.
• Blinking, three states: When a new subtle alarm is received, the star will alternate flashing solid, exploded, then off, until
you view the new event.

HotSync® Operations
Chapter 9: Exchanging and Updating Data using HotSync® Operations
HOTSYNC OPERATIONS
HotSync technology lets you synchronize—exchange and update—data between one or more Garmin connected organizers and
Palm™ Desktop software or another PIM such as Microsoft Outlook. To synchronize data, you must connect your iQue® handheld
and Palm Desktop software either directly, by placing your handheld in the cradle attached to your computer or using infrared
communications, or indirectly, with a modem or network.
The HotSync process automatically synchronizes data between your handheld and Palm Desktop software. Changes you make
on your handheld or Palm Desktop software appear in both places after a HotSync operation. HotSync technology synchronizes
only the needed portions of files, thus reducing synchronization time.
You can synchronize your data by connecting your handheld directly to your computer with the cradle or indirectly with a
modem or network. You can also perform HotSync operations using the IR port on your organizer. This chapter describes how to
select HotSync options and perform a HotSync operation via infrared communications, modem, or network.
Performing a HotSync Operation for the First Time
The first time you synchronize your data, you must enter user information on both the handheld and Palm Desktop software.
After you enter this information and synchronize, the HotSync Manager recognizes your handheld and doesn’t ask for this
information again.
If you are a System Administrator preparing several handhelds for a group of users, you may want to create a user profile. See
“Creating a User Profile” later in this chapter before performing the following steps.
Chapter 9 Using HotSync® Operations

HotSync® Operations: Setup
Performing the First Local HotSync® Operation
You must perform your first HotSync operation with a local, direct connection, rather than using a modem.
The following steps assume that you have already installed the Palm™ Desktop software. If you have not installed this software,
see “Installing Palm Desktop Software” in Chapter 1 for instructions.
To perform a local HotSync operation:
1. Insert your handheld into the cradle. The bottom edge of the handheld should align smoothly with the cradle when it
is inserted properly.
HotSync Button
2. Enable the HotSync software.
On Windows, the HotSync Manager must be running for the HotSync operation to proceed. If it is running, the
HotSync icon appears in the Windows system tray. If the HotSync Manager is not running, click the Start button on
the Windows desktop and choose Programs. Navigate to the Palm Desktop software program group and choose
HotSync Manager. Alternatively, you can start the Palm Desktop software which automatically opens the HotSync
Manager.
3. Press the HotSync button on the cradle.
NOTE: If you are using an optional HotSync cable instead of a cradle, tap the HotSync icon in the Applications
Launcher window, then tap the HotSync icon in the HotSync application.
4. Select the user name you entered when you installed Palm Desktop software. The HotSync Progress dialog box appears and synchronization begins.
Every handheld should have a unique name. To prevent loss of a user’s records, never try to synchronize more than
one handheld to the same user name.
5. Wait for a message on your handheld indicating that the process is complete.
When the HotSync process is complete, you can remove your handheld from the cradle.

Chapter 9 Using HotSync® Operations
HotSync® Operations: Setup
Creating a User Profile
You can create a user profile to load data into a handheld without associating that data with a user name. This feature lets
System Administrators configure several Garmin handhelds with specific information (such as a company phone list) before
distributing them to their actual users. On Windows, you use the File Link feature of the Palm™ Desktop software to import
information from external files. For more information see “Using File Link” later in this chapter.
The User Profile feature is designed only for the first-time HotSync® operation, before you assign a User ID to a particular
handheld.
To create a user profile:
1. Open Palm Desktop software.
2. From the Tools menu, choose Users.
3. Click Profiles.
4. Click New. Enter a unique name for the profile and click OK.
5. Click OK to return to Palm Desktop software.

5. If necessary, choose another Serial Port to identify the port that Palm™ Desktop software uses to communicate with
the cradle. This selection should match the number of the port to which you connected the cradle. Your handheld
cannot share this port with an internal modem or other device. See “iQue® Components” in Chapter 1 if you have
trouble identifying the serial port.
6. If necessary, set the speed to determine the speed at which data is transferred between your handheld and Palm
Desktop software.
Try the As Fast As Possible rate first, and adjust downward if you experience problems. This setting allows Palm Desktop software and your handheld to find and use the fastest speed.
7. Click the Modem tab to display the modem settings and adjust the options as needed. See “Performing a HotSync®
Operation via a Modem” later in this chapter for more information.

needed. See “Performing a HotSync Operation via a Network” later in this chapter for more information.
9. Click OK.
Customizing HotSync Application Settings
For each application, you can define a set of options that determines how records are handled during synchronization. These
options are called a “conduit.” By default, a HotSync operation synchronizes all files between the handheld and Palm Desktop
software.
In general, you should leave the settings to synchronize all files. The only reason you might want to change these settings is to
overwrite data on either your handheld or Palm Desktop software, or to avoid synchronizing a particular type of file because you
don’t use it.
In addition to the conduits for Date Book, Address Book, To Do List and Memo Pad, Palm Desktop software includes System and
Install conduits. The System conduit backs up the system information stored on your handheld, including Graffiti® 2 ShortCuts.
The Install conduit installs applications on your handheld.

IR HOTSYNC OPERATIONS
Your organizer is equipped with an infrared (IR) port that supports the
IrCOMM implementation of the standards for infrared communication established
by the Infrared Data Association (IrDA). This means that you can beam data to any other device that supports the IrCOMM
implementation of the IrDA standards. Most importantly, you can use the IR port to perform HotSync operations. You don’t need
a cradle to do this. This is very useful if you travel with an infrared-enabled laptop. You simply enable infrared communication on
your laptop and handheld and follow the steps in “Performing an IR HotSync Operation” later in this section.
Preparing your Computer for Infrared Communication
Before you can perform a HotSync operation using the IR port, the computer you want to synchronize with must meet the
following requirements:
• The computer must support the IrCOMM implementation of the IrDA standards.
• The computer must have an enabled infrared port built-in, or an enabled infrared device attached to the computer.
Desktop computers are likely to require an infrared device attached to a physical serial port. Laptops are likely to have a built-in
IR port. Your computer must also have an installed infrared driver.
Infrared communication is built into the operating system for Microsoft Windows 98. Check your computer’s documentation to
determine if the computer supports infrared communication.

CONDUCTING A HOTSYNC OPERATION VIA A NETWORK
When you use the Network HotSync software, you can take advantage of the LAN and WAN connectivity available in many
office environments. The Network HotSync software lets you perform a HotSync operation by dialing in to a network or by using
a cradle that is connected to any computer on your LAN or WAN (provided that the computer connected to the cradle also has the
Network HotSync software installed, your computer is on, and the HotSync Manager is running).
Network HotSync Software Requirements
• Your computer has TCP/IP support installed.
• Both your company’s network system and its remote access server support TCP/IP. (Your System Administrator has this
information.)
• You have a remote access account. (If you don’t have an account, consult your System Administrator.)
Everything you need to connect to your company’s dial-in server (network modem) is included with Palm Desktop software and
the handheld software. You need to activate the feature, however, on both Palm Desktop software and your handheld.
To prepare your computer for a network HotSync operation:
1. Click the HotSync Manager icon in the Windows system tray.
(The Windows system tray is usually in the lower right corner on your computer display. The location may vary depending on the location of the taskbar and the version of Windows you are using.)
2. From the HotSync Manager menu, choose Network.
HotSync Manager icon
3. From the HotSync Manager menu, choose Setup.

Setting Connection and Network Preferences
Chapter 10: Setting Connection and Network Preferences
The TCP/IP software that is included in the iQue® handheld operating system lets you connect with remote Internet Service
Providers (ISPs) or dial-in (remote access) servers, using applications that let you view the transmitted data.
To use TCP/IP, you must first create a configuration in Connection Preferences and then create Network preference settings (see
“Connection Preferences” and “Network Preferences”). Then you connect to your ISP or dial-in server; see “Connecting to your ISP
or Dial-in Service” later in this chapter.
For information on third-party applications that support TCP/IP, visit the web site: http://applications.palmsource.com.
CONNECTION PREFERENCES
The Connection Preferences screen allows you to create configurations for communicating with a PC or modem. Once activated,
configurations (or profiles) are available to various end-user applications running on the handheld. The Connection Preferences
screen displays a list of available configurations that can be modified to reflect the required settings. This list will vary depending
on the software you have added to your handheld.
Connection Types
There are three basic types of connections you can choose from when configuring your preferences. They are described here:
• Cradle/Cable: This connection type defines the direct cradle/cable connection between your organizer and your desktop
computer. It is used when performing a local HotSync®. Your handheld is connected by its universal port to the cradle or
HotSync cable. The cradle/cable is attached to a serial (COM) or USB port on your desktop computer.
• Serial to Modem: This connection type defines a communication between a modem attached to the serial port of your
handheld and a modem.
• IR to a PC/Handheld: This connection type defines a connection between the IR port of your handheld and the infrared
device of your computer or handheld device.
To modify Connection preferences:
1. Tap the Applications Launcher (Home) icon.
2. Tap the Prefs application.
3. In the pick list in the upper right corner of the screen, tap Connection.

Entering DNS Numbers and IP Addresses
The Internet uses the Domain Naming System (DNS) to translate the names of host computers into IP addresses. A DNS number
(or IP address) identifies a specific server that handles the translation services. Each DNS or IP address is a series of four numbers,
from 0 to 255, separated by periods.
Anyone who logs onto the Internet must have a unique identifier—an IP address. This IP address can be either temporary—
assigned automatically each time you log on—or permanent.
Not all systems require that you enter a DNS number; check whether it is with your system administrator. If a DNS number is
required but not entered, logging on to your network may appear successful. However, the connection will fail if you try to use an
application or look up information.
To specify a primary and secondary DNS number:
1. If your system requires DNS numbers, ask your Internet Service Provider or system administrator whether your system
requires DNS numbers, and if so, what they are.
NOTE: Many systems do not require that you enter a DNS.
2. In the Network Preferences screen with a service template selected, tap Details.
3. Tap the Query DNS check box to deselect it.
4. Choose one of the following options:
• If your system does not require a DNS or you are not sure whether it does, leave the DNS field blank.
• To enter the Primary DNS number, tap the space to the left of the first period in the Primary DNS field and enter the
first section of the IP address using a number only, from 0 to 255; repeat the step for the remaining sections of the
field. Use the same technique to enter the Secondary DNS number.
To specify the IP address:
1. Check with your system administrator whether your IP address is automatically (temporarily), or permanently assigned, and if permanent, get the address.
2. In the Network Preferences screen, with a service template selected, tap Details.
3. Choose one of the following options:
• If your IP address is automatic and temporary, make sure that the IP Address check box is selected.
• If your IP address is permanently assigned, tap the IP Address check box to deselect it. In the permanent IP address field, tap the space to the left of the first period, and enter the first section of the IP address using a number
only, from 0 to 255. Repeat the step for the remaining sections of the field.
4. Tap OK.

Creating a Login Script
A login script is a series of commands that automates logging into your ISP. You can create login script files by selecting
commands from in the Login Script dialog box. Some commands, such as Send, require additional information and have a
parameter field to add the necessary data. You can also use non-ASCII and literal characters in your login script. See “Using nonASCII Characters in Login Scripts” for more information.
To create a login script:
1. With a service template selected in the Network Preferences screen, tap Details.
2. In the Details dialog box, tap Script.
3. In the Login Script screen, tap the End pick list.
4. In the pick list, tap any of the following commands to select them, and then enter additional information if a field appears:
• Wait For: to instruct your handheld to wait for specific characters from the TCP/IP server before executing the next
command.
• Send: to transmit specific characters to the TCP/IP server to which you are connecting.
• Send CR: to transmit a carriage return or LF character to the TCP/IP server to which you are connecting.
• Send User ID: to transmit the User ID information entered in the User ID field of the Network Preferences screen.
• Send Password: to transmit the password entered in the Password field of the Network Preferences screen. If
you did not enter a password, this command prompts you to enter one. The Password command is usually followed by a Send CR command.
• Delay: to instruct your handheld to wait a specific number of seconds before executing the next command in the
login script.
• Get IP (for SLIP connections): to read an IP address and uses it as the IP address for your handheld.
• Prompt: to open a dialog box and prompts you to enter text of some kind (for example, a password or a security
code).
• End: to identify the last line in the login script.
5. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you have completed the login script.
6. Tap OK, and then tap OK in the Details dialog box.
Chapter 10 Setting Connection and Network Preferences
10.7
Setting Network Preferences
Using Non-ASCII Characters in Login Scripts
If you know how to write custom scripts with non-ASCII characters, you can incorporate the caret (^char) character, carriage
returns and line feeds, and literal characters in your custom login scripts.
• Use the caret (^ char) character to transmit ASCII command characters. If you send ^char, and the ASCII value of char is
between @ and _, then the character is automatically translated to a single-byte value between 0 and 31.
For example, ^M is converted to a carriage return. If char is a value between a and z, then the character sequence is
translated to a single-byte value between 1 and 26. If char is any other value, then the character sequence is not subject to
any special processing. Thus, the string “Joe^M” transmits Joe, followed by a carriage return.
• You can include carriage return and line feed commands as part of the login script, when entered in the following format:
<cr> Sends or receives a carriage return
<lf> Sends or receives a line feed
For example, the string “waitfor Joe<cr><lf>” waits to receive Joe, followed by a carriage return and line feed from the remote
computer, before executing the next command in the script.
• You can use the backslash ( \ ) character to specify that the next character be transmitted as a literal character, and not be
subject to any special processing ordinarily associated with that character. For example:
\^ Includes a caret as part of the string
\< Includes a < as part of the string
\\Includes a backslash as part of the string
Connecting to Your ISP or Dial-in Service
Once you’ve set Modem and Network preferences, you can easily connect to your ISP or dial-in server using PPP, SLIP, or CSLIP
protocols.
You can make the connection using either Network Preferences commands or a third-party application. Connecting to an ISP
requires a third-party application, such as a Web browser or news reader. For information on third-party applications that support
TCP/IP, check the web site: http://applications.palmsource.com.
To make or close a connection:
1. Tap the Applications Launcher (Home) icon; then tap the Prefs icon.
2. In the upper right corner of the Preferences screen, tap Network.
3. In the Network Preferences screen, tap Connect to dial the current service and display the Service Connection Progress messages.
4. To see expanded Service Connection Progress messages, press the lower half of the Scroll button during login.
5. Tap Disconnect to terminate the connection between your handheld and your service.
