NXT Palm control software

I received an email from Razix:

I wanted to inform you of a new software I have written for palm that allows you to remotely control NXT from a bluetooth enabled palm.

http://www.razix.com/nxtdirector.htm

I have only tested it on Treo 650, maybe you can test and blog your thoughts on it. The reason I developed it was because there was no remote control software to control NXT from palm - only for Java cellphones andPocketPC as you have blogged at:http://thenxtstep.blogspot.com/2006/07/bt-and-pda-control-and-pcs.html

at least 2 user comments indicated they wanted a palm version.. so here it is!

Thank you, Razix! If you find this useful or have any feedback, please email and thank Razix for the software.

Thank You for the work. I'll give it a spin with my SONY TH55/E PalmOS 5.2.1 and post the outcome.

There was one Palm BT app that I tried when it appeared on Palmgear.com early in August. It was really little more than just a proof of concept application and had very little functionallity.

It works Great. Very good usage even if it is a first shot. I can't wait for more functions. I'll try to email Razix with some suggestions.

Thanks for testing it out chris, Im glad it works on the Sony TH55. My next version will hopefully have real time sensor readings. I took a look at your profile, I love the nxt mono-wheel. Are the wheels from the Hailfire droid kit? If so I am going to ebay one of those right now!

Thanks for putting this together

I tried this out on Palm Tungsten/T5. While attempting to establish a connection, I wait, It asks for the password, I enter it, press ok. Another screen flashes very rapidly, which I can't read and NXT Director quits.

Is there something I'm not doing right?

Thanks again. -Ben

It will only exit the application if it can not find or connect to the NXT device. I could make it more user friendly and put an alert there saying "unable to connect to nxt" and then quit. So it sounds like it is having trouble making a BT connection. It works on Treo's and Sony TH55 so it should work, let me know if you get it running.

Razik, The 4481 Hailfire Driod kit has the wheels. Though, they are climbing in price. I hear the Tuesday Mornings has some for a good price.

I would like to see some additional motor control options. 2-motor opposite turning. But, I will email you soon. I plan to take another look at the NXT Director this weekend.

Update: Telemetry of Sound, Light and Touch Sensors have been added. More to come as I have some more free time. This addition ate up my whole weekend!

Thanks again and continue to develop it (it is the only one tool i saw for palm PDA) :-).
