Default Has anyone synced a Palm Desktop into an Android device?

I have my life on my old Palm device and it would be nice to get that info into my HTC Hero. Without doing it piecemeal is there thought of doing this or has someone done it with software? I can't be the only one with this issue and I wanted to raise the question as I haven't seen it addressed yet....

Thanks for the thoughts on this issue...........

Lisa

See if you can get a conduit from Palm to outlook (palmone.com) for your device. If so you're home free. I used this to get the info from my Treo 650 to my phone.

Yea I transferred my Centro contacts, calendar, etc. to my Droid with little trouble. Outlook to Gmail Gmail to droid automagicly (push). Just sync your pam to outlook first. If you don't have Outlook you might have an issue. But you can always download the Office7 trial.

Thanks for the advice. I couldn't find straight forward info on how to sync the palm desktop with outlook. The things that were suggested weren't on my system or didn't work. I imagine of I could get Palm to Outlook then I could get outlook to gmail. But I can't get to first base so I'm stuck.........

But the idea is a good one..........

If you have hot sync on your PC just change the conduit to outlook. See picture.
If this isn't like your start menu item then update the Palm sync software.

You may have hit on something here. I have Palm Desktop Version 4.0.1
When I got into Explorer and look for that "PIM" manager I don't have it. So I'm going to see if I can update my Desktop Version. My ultimate goal is to get my Palm data on to my Android OS HTC Hero.

Is there a way to bypass outlook and go from Palm Desktop to the Android device?

For now I'm going to work on updating my Desktop........

I so appreciate your help.........

CompanionLink will sync from any version of Palm Desktop to Droid and Hero. You can go through Google, or go direct through USB. It's free for one time use. If you want to continue backing up to Palm Desktop it's $39.95

Here is a link:

Well I went the Companion Link method with their software. Their calendar is only single day so far but the rest of the sync went really smooth. $39 was well worth it to me to have a system that does it so easily. So thank you all for your idea's and for me this is the way I went.

P.S. Also the sync through the gmail folders worked too. So I got all my contacts and calendar, notes and everything at once.......

Android software for ever............
