I've heard rumblings that a Treo650 (or likely any similary equipped Palm)will "sync" (transfer) (via Bluetooth) it's addresses into the Nav+ where the MMI can then be used to scroll through and select from that sync'd list instead of having to use MMI to enter the address in manually.

Can anyone confirm that?

I use a 650. Everytime the phone connects, it sends the list of users you have shortcuts for.

It works very well.

Ok, I suppose that's not so bad. You're in your car and get a call from Joe and he wants you to go to his office so you tap away on your Palm and create a short cut for Joe and then what? You have to disconnect and re-pair the Palm with the car and Voila.

Question about disconnecting -- I have a T616 currently and you can't disconnect/shut down Bluetooth if there is currently a device paired with the phone so you have to reboot the phone. If you turn bluetooth off or unpair/disconnect a currently paired device in PalmOS, will it honor your request or do you have to disconnect first?

Sorry for all the questions.. Just trying to understand how it will all work before I get it so I know what to expect (as much as one can expect to).

Re: Treo 650

I have the latest update for my RNS-E and a Cingular Treo 650..the phone option on the nav unit says use phone but it doesn't work. Do I need a bluetooth adapter? I assumed the RNS-E came with that functionality and the update enabled it..am I wrong?

I have the RNS in a B7 S4.
The only thing that syncs are the names/phone numbers from the 'favorites' page. It doesn't load anything from the contacts at all (so no addresses).

The other annoying thing is that if you delete someone from the favorites page, their number still stays in the car...

I wonder if there is a way to somehow BT your outlook contacts to the NAV+ as this is where I get my Treo contacts from. I would hate to manually input all addresses through the RNS-E dial.

Maybe somehow fake the RNS-E into thinking outlook is a phone. Maybe this is dumb idea. Just my two cents.
