You need to install Palm Desktop and connect it via a HotSync cable.

I have the PLviewer.jar file on my desktop. not sure about the java. With the PLviewer window open, I go to > file, > open, but there are no files in the next window. This was after a hotsync. I can view the log on the Palm.

when you open up plviewer and click file-open you should be able to go thru your folders on your computer and find where your pdb files are.
you may have to search your pc first to find where your files actually are, they may be in some random folder.
You using plviewer v2.05g? click help-about.

Thanks everyone, I found them. They are in a folder called "backup". I drug them onto the desk top, then open viewer and they appear. Thanks again

water temp

is using the Palm to monitor coolant temp the best way. Dont want to rely on stock gauge. My car runs hot, been watching while I drive and logging temp. every thing I do to fix it has no effect on bringing temps down. stating to wonder if the values on Palm are correct.
