    I've played with it off and on. It works really good overall but i've been on the fence about buying it for a long time now. One, it's pretty expensive, and two when I try to play Palm games on it, the software buttons don't seem responsive enough.
    Talked to the author about it and they said it "couldn't" be an issue since it just emulates the buttons in real time. Yet I've had the same experience on multiple phones.
    I also wish it included the OEM palm PIM apps - you would have to install third party calanders etc instead of using the default palm apps.
    The only other emulator i've tried is PHEM, which works great with with PIM apps but runs way too fast for any gaming. On the positive side PHEM includes the graffiti writing area.

    I'm not entirely sure why one would pay for a Palm emulator if one as a working Palm around. But that's just me. :vbwink:

    Me, too. :thumbsup: My two TXs seem to be having some (different from each other) battery issues lately. Chris replaced both batteries in August 2017. :vbfrown: And I need to buy two new chargers.

    How many is plenty? TX, 755p, Centro, Zire31 all work. Pretty sure the m130 is kaputt <G>

    I still have a couple working Centro's in a drawer. My last working TX & accessories were adopted into a wonderful family who could love & support it so much better than I could!

    Just stumbled upon this thread. I have a Centro, a Visor Deluxe, a PalmPilot Personal with the 2MB (!) upgrade card, and two Tapwave Zodiac 1s, all of which still work. Also, on my Moto G Stylus I have the PHEM emulator with a Visor Deluxe ROM and my old Palm databases for that old-school experience. Doesn't seem so long ago that I'd IR-connect my PDA to my Nokia 8290, dial up to Earthlink, and send & receive email like I was the local King of the Geeks.
