2.
Press the battery release button (1).
3.
Slide the battery compartment cover down about 1/2 inch, and then lift the cover off the Travel
Companion (2).
4.
Insert the battery into the compartment (1) so that the connectors on the battery mate with the pins
in the battery compartment, and then press down until the battery locks into place (2). As you insert
the battery, be sure to pull the battery removal tab out so it is on the outside of the battery.

and then sliding the cover until it locks into place.
Do not attempt to insert the battery cover tabs into the compartment slots without first placing the cover
onto the compartment and sliding it closed.
Powering On and Setting Up
The first time you turn on the Travel Companion, follow the on-screen set up instructions. After
completing this initial setup, the Travel Companion displays the Quick Start Tour, which provides
information about using the Travel Companion. View as much of the Quick Setup Tour as needed. When
exiting the tour, the Travel Companion initiates the HP Quick Launch screen, which provides the ability
quickly and easily open applications on your iPAQ.

To learn more about the capabilities of the Travel Companion, refer to this guide as well as the Additional
Product Information on the Getting Started CD. To begin navigation, proceed to the next step.
Navigation Setup
If you do not want to navigate now, continue learning about the Travel Companion and refer back to this
section when you do want to use navigation.
You can use the navigation features of the Travel Companion right out of the box. The easiest way to
open the GPS application is from the HP Quick Launch screen. When launching the GPS application
for the first time, follow the on-screen instructions to configure and set up personal preferences.
The Travel Companion includes a built-in GPS receiver. To navigate to a destination, the GPS
application must determine your current position, for which it uses the Global Positioning System (GPS).
Available for free and without subscription, GPS uses satellites to transmit signals to GPS receivers.
GPS signals work in all weather, anywhere in the world.
To establish a GPS signal, use the GPS receiver outdoors with a clear view of the sky. The GPS
application can take several minutes to find your current position during its first use. If it takes longer,
make sure that you are in an open place without tall buildings or trees nearby. In subsequent uses, the
GPS application will find your position much faster. Once the GPS application locates your current
position, the application shows your position on the map.
NOTE To reduce connection time, you should not be moving the first time you attempt to
establish a GPS connection.
If you want to immediately start navigating:
1.
Press the power button to power on the Travel Companion.
2.
Start the GPS application by tapping Navigation from the HP Quick Launch screen.
3.
Place the Travel Companion in a location with a clear view of the sky.
4.
Install the car kit.
5.
Insert the Travel Companion and plug it in using the travel power adapter.
Car Kit Setup
The car kit allows you to mount the Travel Companion in a location in your car that provides the best
access to a GPS signal.
To install the car kit:
1.
Plug the power cable into the Travel Power Adapter, and then plug the adapter into a vehicle power
outlet.
10
2.
Attach the power cable to the clips on the back of the Travel Companion holder. Be sure to leave
enough cable to plug into the Travel Companion, and that the connector is turned the correct way
to plug into the unit.
3.
Install the holder onto the windshield mounting bracket.
4.
Place the car kit assembly onto the windshield (1), and then press the locking lever (2) to securely
mount the assembly into place.
11
5.
6.

so you can sync with your personal computer and update WorldMate information, integrate with e-mail
and contacts, etc.
16
Step 1: Charge the battery
CAUTION To avoid damaging the Travel Companion or the AC adapter, be sure all connectors
are properly aligned before connecting.
It takes approximately 2 to 4 hours to fully charge the battery the first time. Subsequent charges may
take longer.
1.
Insert the USB end of the mini-USB cable into the port on the AC adapter.
2.
Install the appropriate head onto the AC adapter.
3.
Connect the AC adapter to an electrical outlet.
4.
Connect the mini-USB cable to the charging/communications port on the Travel Companion. The
cable connector only fits one way, so do not force it. If the connector does not insert easily, turn it
over.
NOTE Whenever a replacement battery is inserted into the Travel Companion, press and hold
the Reset button for at least two seconds, or attach an AC adapter to turn on the device.
Step 2: Insert the Getting Started CD into the CD drive of a personal computer
Use the Getting Started CD to complete the setup of the Travel Companion and to synchronize the
Travel Companion with a personal computer.
The HP Install Wizard automatically opens, and the application starts to run.

Microsoft Outlook 2002
●
Microsoft ActiveSync
●
WorldMate Active Sync Plug-in
●
Additional software applications
Step 4: Synchronize your HP iPAQ with your personal computer
Synchronization
Microsoft ActiveSync software, located on the Getting Started CD, allows your HP iPAQ and your
personal computer to communicate with each other.
For synchronization to work properly, install Microsoft ActiveSync on your personal computer before
connecting your HP iPAQ to your computer.
17
Use Microsoft ActiveSync to:
●
Synchronize information between your HP iPAQ and up to two computers or one server so that
the latest information is in all locations.
●
Change synchronization settings and the synchronization schedule.
●
Copy files between your HP iPAQ and computer.
●
Install applications on your HP iPAQ.
●
Synchronize links.
●
Send and receive e-mail.

Request meetings.
Synchronizing your HP iPAQ with a personal computer keeps the same information (such as calendar,
contacts, and e-mails) on both units, making it available when you work on your personal computer or
when you take your HP iPAQ on the go. Synchronize your HP iPAQ with a personal computer using
one of the following methods:
●
Mini-USB synchronization cable
●
Bluetooth
To synchronize your HP iPAQ and a personal computer using the mini-USB synchronization cable:
1.
Be sure ActiveSync 4.1 or later is installed on your personal computer.
2.
Plug the USB end of the synchronization cable into your personal computer.
3.
Connect the mini-USB end on the synchronization cable to the charging/communications port on
your HP iPAQ.
CAUTION To avoid damaging your HP iPAQ or the AC adapter, check to be sure all
connectors are properly aligned before connecting them.
Synchronization begins automatically.
4.
Click Next on the Synchronization Setup Wizard screen.
5.
Perform one of the following:
●
By default, the check box is selected to synchronize directly with a Microsoft Exchange Server.
Clear this check box if you do not want to synchronize directly with a Microsoft Exchange
server, and then click Next.
●
Click Next to synchronize directly with a Microsoft Exchange server.
6.
When the Synchronization Options screen displays, select the items to synchronize between
your HP iPAQ and your computer, and then click Next.
7.
After the items have been synchronized, click Finish. The Synchronization Setup Wizard starts
synchronizing the items you checked.
If ActiveSync does not begin synchronizing, start it manually:
▲
On your personal computer, open ActiveSync by selecting the Start menu > Programs > Microsoft
ActiveSync.
18
Troubleshooting Help for Synchronization Issues
Following is a list of symptoms that may indicate synchronization issues are occurring:
●
No ActiveSync chimes sound (or a gray icon displays), and there is no activity in the ActiveSync
window on your personal computer.
●
ActiveSync chimes sound, and the ActiveSync icon on your personal computer changes to a
swirling green icon. The “retrieving settings” message appears on your personal computer, but the
ActiveSync connection drops prior to establishing the partnership.
●
ActiveSync is searching for a connection but none occurs. (The green icon on your personal
computer continues to spin.)
●
Synchronization has been established between your HP iPAQ and personal computer but
connection is dropped. (The green icon on your personal computer stops spinning and grays out.)
●
Firewall or other network protection software message box is displayed for ActiveSync to access
the network or Internet.
If you experience difficulty while synchronizing your HP iPAQ and personal computer, try the following
solutions to troubleshoot any synchronization issues:
●
●
Confirm that you are running ActiveSync on your personal computer with a supported operating
system (OS).
●
To get more information about the supported OS versions, visit: www.microsoft.com/
windowsmobile.
●
The latest version of ActiveSync is at: www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/downloads.
If you are running ActiveSync 4.1 or later and personal firewall software on your personal computer,
please add ActiveSync to the firewall program’s exception list.
(Firewall software, such as Sygate Personal Firewall, TrendMicro PC-cillin Internet Security, Norton
Personal Firewall, McAfee Personal Firewall, or Zone Alarm Security Suite may block
synchronization.) Refer to the documentation that came with your firewall program to determine
how to add ActiveSync 4.1 or later to the program’s exception list. To further troubleshoot a firewall
application and enable ActiveSync 4.1 or later, visit: www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/help/
activesync.
●
●
During the ActiveSync installation, if you inadvertently left the Microsoft Exchange Server option
box checked and are not planning to connect to an Exchange server, follow these steps:
●
Connect your HP iPAQ to your personal computer. Be sure an ActiveSync connection is
established.
●
On your personal computer, click Start > All Programs > Microsoft ActiveSync.
●
Click Tools > Options > Sync Options tab.
●
Uncheck the boxes for the sync items listed under the Server group.
●
Place a checkmark in the boxes under the Desktop group for those items to synchronize.
Disconnect your HP iPAQ from your personal computer and wait for the ActiveSync message
confirming that your device is no longer connected. Reconnect your HP iPAQ to your personal
computer. Wait for about two minutes to see if your HP iPAQ connects to your personal computer.
19
●
On your personal computer, in ActiveSync, select File > Connection Settings. Confirm that USB
is selected as a connection method.
●
Connect your HP iPAQ to a different USB port on your personal computer.
●
Check your mini-USB synchronization cable. Consider using another mini-USB synchronization
cable if one is available.
●
Try synchronizing via a Bluetooth connection.
●
Restart your personal computer and perform a soft reset on your HP iPAQ. (A soft reset does not
erase any settings, programs or data.) Use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button. Your HP
iPAQ restarts and displays the HP QuickStart Tour. Once your personal computer and HP iPAQ
restart, reconnect your HP iPAQ to your personal computer.
●
Uninstall ActiveSync from your personal computer and then reinstall it. To uninstall ActiveSync
from your personal computer, click Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs >
Microsoft ActiveSync. Then click the Remove button and click Yes.
●
After trying the above solutions without any success in solving the connection problem, perform a
factory reset on your HP iPAQ. (A factory reset clears all user-installed settings, programs, and
data and restores your HP iPAQ to factory settings.)
Reinstall applications on your HP iPAQ once the factory reset is complete by using ActiveSync on your
personal computer. Once your HP iPAQ is synchronized properly, go to ActiveSync on your personal
computer and select Tools > Add/Remove Programs and select any programs to reinstall.
