Hi guys, happy new year.

I gave myself a present in X'mas a PDA-phone typed HP iPAQ 612c. It is very good until I realized how fast the battery runs out. Is anyone suffers the same thing like I am ?


I also interest to install Garmin Mobile XT on my PDA-phone. Is that software as well as the map is free ? I often get lost on the road more often than get lost when debugging a Java program.

Thanks for your help, your help will significantly decrease my change to get lost on the road while driving

Although for a different PDA-phone, a friend of mine downloaded a program that disabled lot of unneeded stuff like bluetooth, signal search, screen brightness, etc, improving a lot the battery life.

I don't have the link and I'm pretty sure it was a different brand/model so probably it won't work.
Have you tried googling it?

Not yet, but I already upgrade the ROM so the battery is not runs out fast.

As far as I know the software who can kill all the application in the memory is SPB Pocket plus, but it is not free.

Does any PDA-Phone is battery eater ?
