    What are the best applications for the treo 650 (in your opinion)...what do they do..and where can they be found? I got my treo about a week ago and I was looking forward to getting new apps to set it apart from ordinary phones (which it already is)..and I came to realize there are SOO many apps that I don't know which to get! My 1 gig SD card is empty!
    List apps that you have!

    So far I have:
    Ringo Pro
    Pocket Tunes Deluxe
    Voice Launcher
    VeriChat

    I have...

    Butler: a lot of nifty utilities that make your 650 A LOT more useful
    Agendus Pro (10): Much better PIM software than the standard calander/contacts/to-do etc.
    AcidSolitaire: The most addicting game known to man.
    VolumeCare: To raise the volume levels so i can actually hear the people im talking to.
    DirAssist(free): Really cool app that finds any business or residential # and gives me their address.
    KeyCaps650(free): Much better way of using the keyboard!
    BackupMan: Great backup utility
    zLauncher: A really really great looking launcher with a TON of features!
    NotifyThem(free): Sends a SMS message to specified people at a specified time. Great for wishing people a happy bday!
    Chatter: Great e-mail client with PUSH technology.
    Verichat: Very nice IM client (AOL/MSN/ICQ/etc)
    RadioState(free): Turns on phone after reset if phone was originally on beforehand.

    There are a bunch more, but im too lazy to type anymore. Other people will fill my gaps...

    I was hooked on GPS on my old Compaq IPAQ, so I waited until I found a GPS that worked with the Treo650. TomTom was the only program available, so I took the plunge. It's been a year now, and for me, this is still the single best application that I've ever used on a PDA. Curiously, my old GPS software, Pocket Co-Pilot, based in New Jersey (where I live), had less accurate maps than TomTom, which is based in Europe. Co-Pilot, despite constantly requiring $50 and $100 for software updates, was constantly sending me down the wrong way on one-way streets (I have family in New York City, where there are a lot of one-way streets). I find that ridiculous. Although I found the software on Co-Pilot had better functionality, at the end of the day, it's really all about the maps and the real-time navigation. Bells and whistles are less important.
    Never had that problem with TomTom. Maps can be loaded by state or US region. I have the northeast from Maine to Virginia, which takes up about 300 megs on my card. When I travel for business to a foreign city, I just load the extra state, punch in the address of the hotel, stick the bluetooth receiver on the dash of the rental car, and just drive away, without ever opening a map. This is in a city that I've never visited before!
    One thing that I would note: The link mentioned above does not include the Bluetooth receiver. That adds about $100 to the price. Also, the software includes both Palm and Windows installation programs. The license allows you to install on two devices. I'm considering moving to the PPC-6700 (sorry Palm folks), but will wait until TomTom confirms compatability. As far as multitasking, TomTom's last software update (which cost me only $5 shipping), added a feature that interrupts the program to receive a phone call, and returns you to the program, without missing a beat on the navigation, when you end the call. Unfortunately, while you're talking, you lose the navigation screen. That's the one multitasking feature that's moving me back to Windows Mobile. I want to be able to talk and navigate at the same time. The only other program that I've gotten to work in the background is PocketTunes. That plays fine while navigating (I turn off the driving directions). Oh, and Audible works in background, also. Hope this helps.

    (1) no, in fact you may prefer not to sue one
    (2) yes, you need a GPS receiver, a way to link it with the treo (wire, BT or cradle) and software
    (3) Yes see above
    (4) none
    (5) supplied with software

    Just added Ringo and loving it.

    Do I understand this correctly, once you load an mp3 ringer through it from the SD card, and then remove the card...it stays in the device and you can still use the ringtone?
