Palm Installation and Update Instructions for Mac Users
Basically, you download PEPID to your Mac and then hotsync to your Palm using Hotsync Manager, which is a component of Palm Desktop.
Palm Desktop is the application on your Mac that keeps track of your Calendar, Contacts, To Do List and Memos. When you perform a HotSync operation to your PDA, the information in Palm Desktop is compared with the information in your device, and made the same. HotSync Manager is integrated into Palm Desktop. HotSync Manager is a desktop component of Palm Desktop that coordinates the synchronization of information between your handheld and Palm Desktop on your Mac. Before you download and install PEPID, make sure that synchronization of the PDA and Mac is enabled and working.
Free space requirements do vary by product. Click here for PEPID file sizes. If you download our products to a memory card, you will only need 4MB of main memory available on your PDA.
Soft reset your Palm to close other programs and connect to Mac. Check that the Mac is connected to the Internet and that security settings allow the download of PEPID files. Make sure that your Palm Desktop Manager (1) is the most recent available and that HotSync Manager (2) is enabled (3).
