There are some palms on a market: 3Com Palms, Visor delux, TRGpro and others.
Which from this set has enough IR power to control electronic devices in 4~5 meters distance?

I am sure, I will never buy an extender pluged in on top ot bottom of palm. It makes crazy to use the palm and keep it in a pocket.
The idea is to use device to amplify a IR signal. Mount it on lamp under a ceiling...
But only one solution is good. Palm with good IR transmitter.

If it does not exist I am determined to wait for better palm computer.

I'd suggest a Visor and the OmniRemote Springboad module from

The Springboard module does not change the "footprint" of the Visor. The IR range is very good with the module.

Tom: There are always the IR extenders mentioned in other threads in this forum. Worth a consideration.

The module goes inside the Visor so that the size of the Visor does not change. There is nothing sticking out on the outside.

I have found an info on:

"Universal remote control! The RedHotLink works great with OmniRemote software (wish #4 :) It's short range but if you make a little mod to your Pilot you can increase the range to 20-30 feet!
Mod....Just reduce the value of R100. (this will void your warranty and should only be done by someone comfortable working with surface mount components).
Does someone know which resistor can be modified in Palm for changing a power of build in IR emmiter?

The last question about IR module to palmIII. Does it use durable connection? If I will 1000 times connect and disconnect it from palm , the connection will function good? Will the module have stable connection with palm after it?
