    Palm Treo hot sync

    I have lost the original hot sync cable that came with my Palm Treo 680. I bought a new cable that doesn't have the hot sync button on it. I thought there was a way to initiate hot sync from the computer, but I can't find it. I have checked the Hot Sync manager and there is nothing there. Any ideas?

    I don't know about the Treo, but with the Zire31, I've reprogrammed one of the unused buttons for a fellow employee to act as the hotsync button. It was changed via the Preferences / Buttons menu options.

    Thanks, but no cigar. I may just have to buy a real Treo cable, not an aftermarket clone.

    If you have the cable connected, from the Treo's menu (app) screen you should be able to punch/click to start a synch from there. Mine does, even though I do have the standard cable, but I don't have to punch the button.

    Re: Palm Treo hot sync

    Clarifying what I wrote last night, I grabbed a picture out of the Treo 680 manual and added a red note. BTW, on mine, the wording is "Cradle/Cable" not Wayne's PC obviously. But, tapping the icon does perform a hotsync.

    Re: Palm Treo hot sync

    Thanks for the tips.Worked like a charm, after I found that the Hot Sync icon was hidden! BTW, what page in the manual was that illustration? I used the pdf index but couldn't find that particular page.

    Page 183 (I too am using the PDF version).

    Good deal for you, glad it worked on your cable too.
