Default just got a tungsten T2; total newb, what is it good for?

well my mom works as a nurse and she came home yesterday with a T2 without a charger and a dead battery, she said it was sitting in a lost and found for almost a year so she knew i liked gadgets and gave it to me

i did reshearch and it came out july 23 2003 for $399, bluetooth, 32 mb ram and grafitti program.(to write stuff with stylus)

i see some topics about it running GPS software, how would i go about installing that, and is it free?

i would know more about it but i dont have a cable, if someone has a palm and they know of a retail store that sells a usb snyc/charge cable like radioshack or best buy or comp usa then tell me about it.

thnx
i would love to get some use out of this

Hello,

A nice find! Here's where you can get further information, plus the sync software for your Tungsten T2:

http://www.palm.com/us/support/tungstent2/

There are PDF user guides at the bottom right of that page which will help a lot.

Here's an example of the type of cable you need to connect your PDA to the PC:

http://www.buynshop.com/productinfo/2038/PDA-PLCB7/

It's called a Palm Hotsync Cable...specifically, you need a Palm Hotsync Cable that is compatible with the Tungsten T2 model of course. Alternatively, search in google for 'palm hotsync cable t2' and you'll see a lot of places that are selling it.

This cable also charges the device http://www.proporta.com/F02/PPF02P05...199&t_mode=des.
