    I found the different modes early on, but since I'm not a real financial type, I couln't figure out HOW to use the financial mode. My wife has a Real Estate-specific calculator, and when she doesn't have it w/ her it would be nice if she could use mine - trouble is neither of us can figure it out. Anyone who can help? (the Palm online PDF user manual only shows how to get to the advanced modes - not how to use them).

    A bit off-topic, but I still have a HP 11C from when I was in college (graduated '90)... What's amazing is to this day, I can pull it out of the drawer, and it still works like new, on the original batteries! Crazy.

    Google MathU.. or just click here

    I'm an RPN man myself as well.

    I run MathU on my 700p as I did my Visor Classic and Visor Prism.

    Hi all,

    Just want to know if there's any setting that can be done on the treo calculator? I did this calculation and the result came out wrong.

    I am using the basic mode of the calculator.

    Type 800,000 times 3 % ... result 24000. Then hit on the minus sign... a figure of 19,200,000,000 appeared... without me hitting another number...weird ...

    Can anyone try it out and see if the result is the same?

    Could something be wrong with the software?

    The calculator is doing exactly what you are telling it to do:

    800,000 x 3% = 800,000 x (800,000x.03)= 800,000 x 24,000=19,200,000,000

    Not a bug just a common error on the operator side when calculating percentages.

    Cool, never saw that one.

    Anyone know how to "clear" using the Treo keyboard?

    On the 600, it was "shift" "c".

    I am surprised no one mentioned this earlier in the thread.
    It was a great THREE part series...
    I too was amazed with the features of the calc, but I DID see the articles!!

    The current calculator is based on parens. The documentation for parens works for the current one.
