Kev,
Glad to help. And no kidding about technology. It's like a carousel that just spins faster and faster; jump on when you can, 'cause it's not stoppin'.
I planted a seed about the Pre. I'll keep you posted.

Hello Kev,
I'm going to forward your comments over to the good folks at Disetronic and get an answer for you about Palm compatibility.
I'm sorry it took me a bit to get back to you. Feel free to send me an email directly at rob.muller@roche.com if there is ever any lag between question and response.
Thanks for the comments. I’ll get back to you ASAP.

Cheers,
