Getting to Know Your iPAQ Pocket PC

Using the Stylus

Your iPAQ Pocket PC comes with a stylus that you should use to tap or write on your screen.

Ä

CAUTION:

To prevent damage to your iPAQ Pocket PC screen, never use any device other than the stylus that comes with the

Pocket PC or an approved replacement to tap or write on the screen. If you lose or break your stylus, you can order extras at www.hp.com/products/pocketpc/options

.

You can perform three basic actions using the stylus:

Tap

—Lightly touch the screen to select or open an item. Lift the stylus after you tap an item. Tapping is equivalent to clicking an item with the mouse on your personal computer.

Drag

—Place the point of the stylus on the screen and drag an item across the screen without lifting the stylus until you have completed the selection. Dragging is equivalent to dragging with the left mouse button pressed on your personal computer mouse.

Tap and hold

—Hold the stylus pointer on an item for a short time until a menu displays. Tapping and holding is equivalent to right-clicking your personal computer mouse button. When you tap and hold, a circle of red dots appears around the stylus to indicate that the menu will soon pop up.

Managing the Battery

Model shown in illustrations is iPAQ Pocket PC h5500 Series.

Installing the Battery

If you remove the main battery from your iPAQ Pocket PC, your device does not operate even if you try to use AC power.

However, the Pocket PC has a small internal backup battery that allows you to change the main battery without losing RAM data

(user-installed programs and data) as long as it is replaced within

10 minutes. If the battery is removed from the unit for longer than 10 minutes, you will lose unsaved RAM data and need to reset the unit.

It is recommended that you fully charge the iPAQ Pocket PC battery

before

setting up the unit, and recharge regularly. Your

Pocket PC uses some power to maintain files in RAM and the clock. While working at your desk, keep the Pocket PC connected to the Universal Desktop Cradle. When you travel, it is recommended that you carry the AC Adapter, Charger Adapter plug, or an optional spare battery with you.

Your iPAQ Pocket PC is shipped with the battery partially charged.

Charging a Low Battery

Your iPAQ Pocket PC will not power on if the battery has a low charge (less than 3.2 Volts). It is recommended that you fully charge the battery prior to using the Pocket PC.

If the charge on the battery goes below the 3.2 Volts as a result of not being connected to the Universal Desktop Cradle or the AC

Adapter, no damage will occur to the battery. However, the iPAQ

Pocket PC charge indicator light will

not

flash until the battery reaches the minimum charge of 3.2 Volts

and

you perform a normal reset.

To charge and reset the iPAQ Pocket PC:

1. Connect the iPAQ Pocket PC to an A/C power supply.

2. Charge the battery to the minimum level of 3.2 Volts. This will take 5 to 30 minutes depending on the current charge level.

Preserving Battery Time

Adjusting the Standby Setting

Adjusting the Standby setting can preserve battery time. During

Standby, the unit turns off so very little power is being consumed.

This helps to preserve programs and data stored in RAM.

Using Bluetooth

Use of dial-up and wireless Internet, e-mail, corporate networks, and other wireless communications, such as Bluetooth-enabled devices, may require separately purchased additional hardware and other compatible equipment, in addition to a standard

Wireless LAN (WLAN) infrastructure and a separately purchased service contract. Check with your service provider for availability and coverage in your area. Not all Web content may be available.

Some Web content may require installation of additional software.

Getting Acquainted with Bluetooth

Several tasks require you to locate a device and connect to it.

When you are required to locate a device, the Bluetooth browser assists by searching for your desired function that supports other

Pairing Devices

You can pair devices so they must exchange a computer generated security key prior to each connection. The security key is also called a “passkey.” It is generated from a unique Bluetooth device address, a random number, and a user-defined password.

After two devices are paired, they have a trusted relationship with each other that can be verified using a link key. No additional input is needed from the user. Therefore, connections and activities can be performed between the paired devices without constant authorization from the user.

Using the Wireless LAN

(h5500 only)

Getting Acquainted

Your iPAQ Pocket PC can connect to an 802.11b Wireless LAN

(WLAN) or connect directly to other WLAN-enabled devices.

With WLAN, you can:

Access the Internet

Send and receive e-mail

Access corporate network information

Use virtual private networks (VPN) for secure remote access

Use hot spots for wireless connectivity

Use of dial-up and wireless Internet, e-mail, corporate networks, and other wireless communications, such as Bluetooth-enabled devices, may require separately purchased additional hardware and other compatible equipment, in addition to a standard Wireless LAN (WLAN) infrastructure and a separately purchased service contract. Check with your service provider for availability and coverage in your area. Not all web content may be available. Some web content may require installation of additional software.
