    Thanks kgj. I'm currently using a Palm m505 with MMCd freeware for datalogging my 1g. I have both the serial (DB9) & USB cable. I use the serial along with the datalogger (diy) cable to connect to the diagnostic port. The USB cable is used for Hotsyncing and charging the Palm. According to the Palm support site, the existing cradle for the m500 series can still be used for the TW. I also found this page which says something about the TW with Audacity DVR software... clicky. You can also check the Audacity main site here... http://www.audiost.com I may have to get a TW to see if it really can handle both datalogging and mp3 playback.

    However, I think you'd get a little unstuck as you couldn't do both datalogging and music playback at the same time ( if that's what you wanted to do ) without some nasty hacking of code.... the palm's can only run one program at once as far as i'm concerned.

    Good luck with it though!

    good point Wolfsbane. my intent tho was never to use the two simultaneously.

    datalogging for me would be sporadically used and only for a short time (mainly for trouble shooting or quick diagnosis).

    prodigi, thanks for the tips/links. good info! looks like we own essentially the same stuff (DSM car & palm datalogger) & along with the exact same interest in a pda. but you are probably closer to getting the most out of your existing stuff than me. i just wish i had considered all of this stuff collectively sooner, rather than "one at a time".. oh well. i'm learning a lot!

    maybe u can ask on that pda website if anyone is using an mp3 player on the TW. looks like there are apps out there for it. keep me posted!
