Adjusting your PDA clock

by Volker Weber

It never ceases to amaze me that GSM phones do not update their internal clock although they have a very precise clock on the network. The Treo is no exception. But here is help in the form of TimeCopy (Windows/Mac). It consists of a conduit and a Palm application. Together they will adjust the PDA clock to the desktop clock. Since both Windows and the Mac can adjust their own time via NTP, you can forget now about setting the clock.

there is a tiny ntp-client for palm os which enables your treo to sync with any ntp-server via gprs. http://www.shin.nu/~FocV/NetClock/
it should work fine on palm os 5.2

for win-users: check out pilot-install. it is a hotsync-free app that installs palm-apps on the fly. it has got an option to sync the palm-clock while doing the installation. http://envicon.de/e/pinstall/pinstall.html

The Samsung i500 (and family) actually do this just fine. And the i500 was (at least for a while) the smallest palm device out there.

Very nice. Once I figured out where the conduit folder was (deep in the system library) it worked well.

Thanks

Unglaublich - hab ich mich auch schon häufig gefragt, warum dass so ist. Gibts da technische Hindernisse? Oder fragt sich das ein Softwareprogrammierer einfach deshalb nicht, weil er sowieso immer eine "Atomuhr" trägt?
