READ ME, immediate issues


Dec 6, 2006, 1:34 PM
Ok, as soon as I got mine (48 hours ago) I began to notice issues.

1) the thumb button seems to get stuck. not like it is visible or not, it seems it causes the menus to keep scrolling non-stop. simply hit the button, but it is annoying.

2) NO BATTERY LIFE Two hours after removing from the power cable, it is down to 90% battery. I plan on buying the extended life battery. Just lke the iPod. do nothing and the iPod lasts for 14 hours of play. Frequently change songs? 3-4 hour life span.

3) GPS IS SLOW!!! Hey, standing in the middle of Hollywood showing off my new phone took 5 minutes to get a fix on my location. I tried this all over Los Angeles, and it was always the same. Sometimes it would say number of satellites: 8, 8!!! how can...

Now, I can not use GPS, I have rebooted twice but get the following error within 3 seconds of hitting 'start' in Pocket Streets:

The Communications (COM) port is available, but no signal is being received. Make sure the GPS receiver is turned on and connected to the correct port.

HP provides a program:

HP IPAQ Quick GPS Connection

(I got it from HP Getting Started CD that came with my phone.)

Install the program.
Connect to the internet (via active sync, edge/gmrs, or wifi).
Run the program from Start->Settings->Connections->Quick GPS Connection and click on "download now".

This application downloads timely data about the GPS satellites that enables your GPS to find your location faster. I get my location on Pocket Streets within a few seconds.
