    I don't think you can.

    I've looked around today but haven't seen any that match our Treo 680's, not even on Palm's site.

    I'm sure not all of us have your dainty fingers.

    The 5-way and Fieldplus is my solution for "no stylus" with larger digits.

    (And I think that there is another program that others use to enhance the 5-way's utility. Name?)

    Yup, still use the stylus - the 5-way being too awkward (and too Blackberry) for me in most cases.
    Besides, I shifted my Notes program over to the 680 so that I could do really quick reminders and stuff. 5 way and thumb boards are all very well and good, but not exactly the fastest thing to work on.

    But oh, how I miss the heft of my TX's stylus. The 680s in a cheesy embarrassment - whatever colour its in.

    You could consider getting aftermarket replacement with the pen which is all steel and get rid of the color issue and light weight all at once.

    I still use the stylus. For some programs/games it's just necessary.

    I am using the stylus less and less, as I become more knowledgeable about and comfortable with the Palm OS...and what does what and what takes you to where. I much prefer using the 5-way since I am comfortable with that after years of Motorola and Sony Ericsson mobile phone use.

    The only time I recall using the stylus was the original calibration. I've mostly used the d-pad ever since my T|T.

    Either you all have Christinac130's dainty fingers or you have apps that are very d-pad friendly. I have a number of apps that aren't that d-pad friendly that I use fairly regularly. I have a stick stylus on my desk at work and at home. Granted, I rarely use the built-in stylus, even though I replaced it with a Styra from Boxwave. I do use the keypad for data entry.

    Which programs for example?

    Vindigo, for instance, is not particularly d pad friendly. Even Datebook 6 is more efficient with some stylus use.

    AutoBuddy, Bonsai (hard to drag and drop with the d-pad or fingertips), TomTom6, MSDict, IconMgr, FileZ, etc.

    Actually DateBk6 is quite good. But there are enough so that I usually grap the stylus and hold it while using the keyboard.

    Much more the latter. The ones that aren't are typically finger friendly.
