    Hello there!

    Congratulation for your amazing site!!!

    Just one quick question if you have an answer in mind!

    I have an old Palm V lying here doing nothing, is there any way of connecting it to a router (or to an arduino) without opening it to solder anything inside?
    I was thinking ruining the craddle instead of the palm!

    Thanks again,

      Hi. I went on eBay and bought a Palm IIIxe just to do this. But I can’t find Pocketterm on it. Is it a built-in app? If so, how do I find it? If not, do you know where I could get a copy? If you still have a copy, would you be able to send it to me?

      (I’m hoping to use the Palm as an output for my microcontroller projects when I need debugging output.)

      Thanks. I’d really appreciate any help you can give.

      - Bob

    hey stam

    I’m afraid you need to open your device, as the serial craddle uses +12V/-12V (serial level) and you want ttl level…

    Thank for the reply!

    I see you point…

    I was thinking of using something like a Max232 that converts from RS-232 to TTL.

    So the whole project would be like this:

    Palm V –> Cradle –> Max232 –> Router

    Have a nice day!

    Will the palm pilot function just like a screen? What I mean is, will it boot by itself when the router boots and start displaying right away or do you need to boot it separately and then start a program on the palm every time?
