    Does anyone know of a high-quality stylus upgrade for the Treo 600. I'm not looking for a stylus with a pen included, but something with more heft and a sturdier tip. The only thing I've seen is the 2(or3)-in-one from Stylus Central. This one seems to have a tim similar to the stock stylus. I was hoping for something with a delrin or similar tip like the PDA Panache stilii, but that would fit flush into the T-600. Does it exist? What about the Handspring replacement stilii -- are they the same as the stock stylus or more heavy duty?
    Regards,

    Robert

    I got the OEM replacements and they are identical to what came with my 600. Sorry no luck there.

    anyone try the stylus from Styluscentral? interested in getting one of those mentioned by mszatny, just one note, the cap for the pen, is it screw in type?

    It's a 2 in 1 now because the reset pin isn't long enough for the 600. The cap pops off rather than unscrews.

    if it is just pops off, wont be very easy for the stylus to be left inside the stylus holder while the cap is the only thing u pull out from it?

    Robert ~ I use a simple Fisher Space Pen Bullet pen www.spacepen.com . I like the feel, weight & diameter. They do offer a few dual function pens w/stylus. My choice was to make a dedicated stylus, with the heft and feel suitable for extensive Graffiti use, under stress. So I buy a 3 pack of Styli (based on when I did this) I use the Garmin iQue 3600 OEM Stylus, but have to modify a few things.
    • I remove the spring and ink cartridge from the Fisher Bullet Space Pen (~ $14 @ local Staples)
    • Stylus 3 pac http://shop.garmin.com/graphics/010-10411-00.jpg is about $9 at www.tvnav.com/iqueaccessories.html . This stylus is 0.186" (3/16") diameter - identical to the diameter of the ink cartridge. As compared to the Treo 600 stylus, 0.140" diameter and while more expensive, the Treo 600 diameter will not auto-align with the the pen axis.
    • The "critical" modification (you want it just the right length) is grinding the black plastic back-end of the Garmin Stylus so that it is the perfect length. Resulting with very solid positioning & zero rattle, etc.
    ==> A word of CAUTION regarding use of Stylus:

    The touchscreen must be set up for accuracy and touch. If you are finding that (with any stylus) your Treo is not responding, pushing harder, tapping more, is a bad and damaging habit. It suggest the "Touchscreen" option, found in the "Prefs" area should be revisited.

    This issue is true for everyone, but you if elect to use a stylus with more mass, it is critical that a user understand that a soft touch, attention to accuracy and proper touchscreen adjustment is required.

    I do not use screen protectors, but understand what is required to protect the screen from user-induced damage (I have attached an image of my screen, so you can draw your conclusion, regarding screen condition.)

    I carry one in my shirt pocket for use with my Garmin iQue 3600, Treo 600 or Palm Tungsten C. Clients using Palm / Pocket PC devices seem to love this stylus, so I usually have an extra to leave with them. I also have them in pen supports at my workstations, next to the Tablet Stylus)

    My quest for a comfortable stylus stems from my enjoyment with pens. I use a modified Pelikan Foutain pen, as I prefer an artist oblique nib.
