Has anyone successfully setup avantgo to work on osx?
I have a palm m505, and can't seem to get it to work with avantgo on the mac. If i can get this working, I can get rid of my NEC PC and work 100 percent on th mac.

Thanks!

According to the FAQ on the AvantGo web site, there is no support for OSX, not now and (likely) not ever. It's too bad, really, since I was a big fan of it back in my PC days. There's an OS X device called Plucker, but I could never get the darn thing to work.

That sucks.
I use my pda for news etc as well. GRR!

I wonder if anything with X11 can be done.. a unix versino of avantgo. i think they mentioned something like that.
will look into it.

I use something called Mobipocket for news on a limited number of newspapers.
They have an outdated mac version which seems to work on X, cause it downloads the pages first and upload those during hotsync.
Unlike Avantgo which the connection is made while during hotsyncing. Give it a go, but choice of news is VERY limited.
