    Anyone have experience with using Omni remote on a Palm 500 or 515. I tried it on a Vx but the IR range was about a foot too short. Has this improved with the newer Palms

    Have a look here,

    Have just installed the omni remote on a Clie and the best I can do with range is 5 feet but there are some add on Ir units which extends the range.

    Thanks.

    Knew that the chart was there but wanted to check what other people had experienced.

    We have one with the IR module installed on a Handspring Visor. The range on this is easily the length of the shop to the demo room, which is around 30' from where I'm sitting.
