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 HotSync® technology to back up and exchange data between your handheld and
your computer.
It is a good idea to back up your data frequently 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 so that you can view, enter, and modify 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 that you can easily transfer data from other applications on your personal computer into
applications in your handheld. 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:
Plug the cable from the iQue handheld cradle into a 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 Destop 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.

3. On the Palm Desktop, change the user name to the new iQue user name. In the File Menu, select Import. Select the
Date Book archive that you just created. This will import Date Book information from your old handheld to your new
iQue user. Click Import.
4. Repeat these steps for your Address Book, To Do List and Memo Pad, if applicable.
5. To prepare for the first HotSync operation to synchronize your new handheld with your new Palm Desktop software,
go to the HotSync Manager and choose Custom.
6. Select your new user name, if is does not already appear in the box.
7. For all conduits, click Change, and select the Desktop overwrites handheld option, then click Done. For more information, see “Customizing HotSync Application Settings” in Chapter 9.
Installing Palm Desktop Software
For specific instructions on installing Palm Desktop software, please refer to the Setup Guide, included with the Setup CD. You will
need this CD to install the software. After installation, refer to the online Help in Palm Desktop software for information on how to
use the Palm Desktop software.
Using Your Handheld with Another Personal Information Manager
If you prefer to use another Personal Information Manager (PIM), such as Microsoft® Outlook, be sure to install the correct
connection software, called a conduuit. Keep in mind, though, that you must install Palm Desktop software to set up your handheld.

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 in each shape indicates where to start the stroke. Some characters have similar shapes but different starting
and ending points. Always start your 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 you
must draw the second stroke. Otherwise, the temporary stroke is recorded.
• 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
Tap the arrow to show or
hide the text input area
Write uppercase letters across the division line
• A special feature of the iQue handheld is a collapsible or “soft” Graffiti® 2 input area to maximize the display area. In
some applications, you can hide the text input area by tapping on the down arrow in the lower right corner. In some Que
applications, the text area is automatically hidden for full screen display. To show the text input area again, tap on the
up arrow.

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. Then 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 is 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.
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 or 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 or the other of the text input area according to the chart below (in general,
more frequently used punctuation is on the left side).
Chapter 2 Entering Data
2.5
Entering Data: Entering Data Using 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, as shown in the following illustration.
Writing Symbols and other Special Characters
Use the Shift command to write Symbols and other special characters. To use the Shift command, make a vertical stroke from
the bottom to the top in the text input area. A 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 when you write punctuation characters with the Shift command, you can write them on either side of the text input area.
Even though this requires writing an additional stroke, you may find it more convenient because you do not have to remember
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, drag 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 an ordinary letter.

Basic Applications Overview: 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.

Basic Applications Overview: Setting Alarms
Setting Alarms
The Alarm setting lets you set an audible alarm for events in your Date Book, and display a reminder message on-screen. For
untimed events, only the reminder message appears.
Setting an Alarm for an Event
You can set an alarm for minutes, hours, or days before an event. When you set an alarm, an Alarm icon appears to the far right of
the event with the alarm.
You can also set a silent alarm for untimed events that displays a reminder message on-screen before the day of the event. The
alarm triggers at the specified period of minutes, hours, or days before midnight of the day on which the untimed event begins.
For example, you set a 5-minute alarm for an untimed event that occurs on February 4. The reminder message will appear at
11:55 p.m. on the night of February 3. The reminder remains on-screen until you turn on your handheld and tap OK to turn off the
reminder.

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.
• Tap the inverted tab at the top of the screen, tap the Record menu, and select Purge.
3. Choose from the following options:
• For the Date Book, select the Delete Events Older Than pick list and select an option—1 week, 2 weeks, 3
weeks or 1 month.
• For the Date Book or To Do list, select Save Archive Copy on PC to save a copy of purged records in an
archive file on your desktop. Selecting this option transfers purged records to an archive file the next time you
perform a HotSync® operation.
4. Tap OK.
Categorizing Records
You can categorize records in the Address Book, To Do List and Memo Pad applications for easy retrieval. (The Date Book does not
have categories.) When you create a record, it is automatically assigned to the currently displayed category. For example, if the All
category is displayed, the record is assigned to the Unfiled category. A record can remain unfiled or it can be assigned to a category
at any time.
Each application has a default set of categories:
• The Address Book includes Business, Personal, and QuickList categories.
• The To Do List includes Business, Personal, and All categories.
• The Memo Pad includes Business, Personal, and All categories.
You can rename or delete the default categories, and you can create new categories. Each application can have up to fifteen
categories.
To move a record into a category:
1. Select the record you want to categorize.
2. Tap Details. (From the Address View screen, tap Edit first.)

Using the Attention Manager: Insistent Alarms
CHAPTER 6: USING THE ATTENTION MANAGER
Many applications (such as Date Book and Clock) notify you (get your attention) with some sort of alarm. Attention Manager
allows you to conveniently manage all of these notifications in one place. Alarms for 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 signal for your attention at two different levels: insistent and subtle. Each is discussed in detail in this chapter.
Insistent Alarms
Insistent alarms open a Reminder 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 enabled, you can silence the alarm by tapping anywhere on the
screen or pushing any button. 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: Puts the Reminder dialog screen to sleep for five minutes. After this time interval, the Reminder dialog screen
appears again. 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” later in this chapter.
• 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. The alarm does not go off again.

pick list in the upper right corner of the screen and select General.
3. Set the volume using the Alarm Sound pick list. If your device has a vibrate or alarm LED feature, turn these
features on or off using the pick lists on this screen.
Setting Alarm Sound Effects
Some applications allow you to set the song or sound effect to use and how many times to play it. The example that follows
illustrates how to set alarm preferences for the Date Book. Setting alarm preferences for other programs is similar.
To set alarm preferences for the Date Book:
1. Open the Date Book application and then tap the Menu icon
.
2. Tap the Options menu and select Preferences.
3. Tap the Alarm Preset check box if you want alarms to sound; then select the following from the pick lists:
• How soon you want the alarm to sound before the event.
• The alarm song or sound effect (for example, Bird or Concerto).
• How many times the alarm repeats before giving up.
• The pause between each time the alarm sounds.
Chapter 6 Using the Attention Manager
6.2
Using the Attention Manager: Insistent Alarms
Using the Reminders List Screen
The Reminder 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.
Tap the text or icon to open that item and delete the event from the Reminders list screen.
Tap the check box to clear that item (similar to a To Do list item). The Attention Manager draws a line through the text lines, pauses
for a moment, and them removes 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 remain in the application that created them. The Reminders list screen does 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 appears
again. You can go directly to the Reminders list screen by tapping on the blinking alarm indicator. For more detail, see
“Understanding the Blinking Alarm Indicator” later in this chapter.
• 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.

Using the Attention Manager: Subtle Alarms
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 flashes 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 star
• 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.
Tapping on the indicator opens the Attention Manager in list mode, even if there is only one item.

HotSync® Operations: Performing a HotSync Operation for the First Time
CHAPTER 9: EXCHANGING AND UPDATING DATA USING HOTSYNC® OPERATIONS
HotSync® technology lets you synchronize (exchange and update) data between one or more iQue handhelds and Palm™ Desktop
software or another PIM such as Microsoft® Outlook. 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 InfraRed if your personal computer supports it. 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
You should have synchronized your iQue handheld for the first time when you used the Setup CD. If you did not synchronize your
handheld at that time, you may experience problems. Refer to the Setup Guide included with the Setup CD for more instructions.
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.
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
the Setup Guide included with the Setup CD 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.

Customizing HotSync® Application Settings
For each application, you can determine how records are handled during synchronization. The applications that handle these records
are called “conduits.” 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 do
not 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 do not 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.
To check if your Windows computer supports infrared communication:
1. Click Start in the Windows taskbar.
2. Choose Settings, and then choose Control Panel.
3. In the Control Panel, look for the infrared icon.
If the icon is there, your computer is enabled for infrared communication. If it is not there, you need to install an infrared driver.
After you install the infrared driver or determine that the infrared driver is already installed, check the ports used by your computer
for infrared communication.

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 called 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 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.
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 to determine 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.

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 have 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://www.palmsource.com/applications.

Troubleshooting TCP/IP Connections
If you have problems connecting to a network using TCP/IP, you can display information to troubleshoot the problem. You can
display expanded Service Connection Progress messages. You can also display the Network Log to see all communication between
your modem and dial-in server during login. This information can help your ISP or your System Administrator identify where and
why the login communication fails.
In addition, check with your system administrator whether a DNS number if required. If a number is required but not entered, the
connection may fail. See “Entering DNS Numbers and IP Addresses” in this chapter.
