Wireless Hotsynching

Wireless Hotsynching

Wireless Hotsynching

I am using ThinKDBSynch from ThinkingBytes to use my Symbol PDA to collect data in the field.  Currently the ThinkDBSynch puts all the data I collect in the field into my Microsoft Access database when I perform a Hotsynch.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to accomplish a straight Hotsynch wirelessly?  I am currently looking into XTNDConnect software, and I have looked into Satellite forms.  It seemed Satellite forms would require me to abandon ThinkDBSynch and write my own software for the PDA.  I like the way I have things set up now so I don't really want to go that route.

Does anyone hae any suggestions?

RE: Wireless Hotsynching

Have you already figured this out?  If not, can you be more specific as to what your needs are.  When you say wireless are you talking a few feet from the computer (maybe Ir), LAN (Bluetooth or 802.11b maybe), or the middle of who knows where and you need to dial it?  

Which symbol PDA do you have and which OS is it running?


RE: Wireless Hotsynching

I agree with alphaguy, If you need wireless syncing, then you need to make sure your palmOS is at least 3.5 (i think). Any thing older than that only does serial.
