View Full Version : Considering purchasing a TJ25...
11-24-2003, 04:46 PM
...to replace a faithful S360 and was wondering:
Will my existing add-on programs work under OS5? (Datebook 5, Acrobat Reader, Isilo, etc.)
Do I lose the Docs-to-Go that came with the S360? (It's not included with the TJ25, right?)
Is data transfer relatively seamless, i.e. no problems? I suppose the new software looks on your pc for existing data...
Any other issues regarding the 25? Thanks in advance for your advice!

I upgraded from an old n610c to the TJ25. Data imported without any problems. Most programs were "automatically" re-installed as well...which caused a problem.
I had strange hotsync fatal exception errors every other sync. Turned out the conflicting program was the old MSImport/Export, probably conflicting with the new/improved "Data Import" program on the TJ25. Deleting the old one fixed everything (but it took a lot of trial & error of deleting individual programs until i got "lucky").
I'd say most of my other 3rd party apps worked fine. Hackmaster & hacks in general don't work on OS 5. Of your specific apps, the only one i use is Docs to Go. It depends on the version you have....i believe versions 5 and above are compatible with OS 5 (i had to buy an upgrade from Docs to Go v4). You may want to compare the version #'s of your apps with the "latest" versions available to see if you'll have to upgrade.
Overall, I'm very happy with the TJ25. Sometimes i wonder if i should have waited for the TJ35, but realistically i would never have used the MP3 player. The extra memory would have been nice, but the multiple posts from others about the screen problems on the TJ35 make me feel more comfortable with my purchase (i haven't seen any posts of TJ-25 screens dying).
Hope i wasn't too long-winded....

Not long-winded at all! Thanks for your reply! I am sorely tempted to take the plunge, and like you, don't need the MP3 capability. I have quite a bit of "stuff" stored on the memory stick, so the 16 MB ought to work... Thanks again, and best wishes!

hi, calling from italy
is it possible to use (downloading) something like "documents to go" or "picsel viewer" on tj25?
i need to operate with ms word files sometime.

Documents to Go is available for download/purchase at multiple internet sites (such as Palmgear (http://www.palmgear.com) or Handango (http://www.handango.com) ). I don't believe Picsel viewer is available yet for purchase. I think there are some coupon codes listed in the "General" forum that could save you 10-20%.
I use Docs to Go...it's good program, & is probably the "standard" for viewing MS Office files on Palm OS Handhelds. I have no experience with Picsel viewer.
Hope this helps.

well drglew, thanks!
so (i'm not interested to listen MP3 with pda), do u suggest me to buy a tj25 (instead tj 35) and download Docs to Go to view (and edit?) word's files?
and the ram memory of tj25 is enough to use it (docs2go)?

There's plenty of memory. I do store my Docs to Go files (and most of my games) on a Memory Stick, with the Docs to Go program in main memory. If you don't have a lot of other large programs you probably don't have to use a memory stick at all.
I'm extremely happy with the TJ25. I get happier every time i see posts of people returning TJ35's because of backlight failure issues (likely because of a problem with the audio circuitry).

thanks & last question
well, there's a place on the web where i can download a D2G freeware?
where do u have download your?
(mybe just tomorrow, i'll bring the 25)

Try Palmgear (http://www.palmgear.com ), or almost any other download site.
By the way, Docs to Go is not freeware....i think the cost is $30 US for the Standard edition, & $50 for the Premium edition. There may be an Italian version as well.
