Palm Releases TomTom6 Update for Treo 680 and 750 Users
Palm has posted an update to their support site (curiously dated January 31st but only available as of February 9th) for owners of the latest Treo 680 and 750 smartphones. Essentially an official version of a hack reported over a month ago discovered by some TreoCentral members.
This update enables purchasers of the Palm GPS Navigator 2 kit to use it on the Treo 680 and 750. Treo 750 owners will have to provide their own miniSD card for external map storage due to the fact that this kit comes bundled pre-loaded fullsize MultiMedia card that will not fit in the 750's slot. An SD/MMC card reader is required to install the updated files.
No other apparent benefits are mentioned in this update nor does Palm recommend owners of Treo 650, 700p, and 700w/wx devices install this update. The availability and publication of this patch by Palm adds an interesting twist to the Palm/TomTom partnership as previous TomTom Navigator 5 for Palm OS updates were distributed exclusively through TomTom's website.
