Re: A5IT and BlackBerry Tethering

I'm pretty sure I have this information for Rogers Canada, can you post exactly what you did for yours?

A5IT and BlackBerry Tethering

Just checking to see if this is possible yet, or if anyone has gotten this working.
I have a BlackBerry Bold 9000 and I'm with Rogers and it needs APN configuration.
In the past I had tried just about everything to try to get it to work, has anyone been successful?

Re: Buying device from archos.ca? Is it reliable?

I have bought many devices from Scott at Archos.CA.
He is honest, reliable. I would buy from him again.

Re: Portable Keyboard?

I bought the Palm Bluetooth folding keyboard for about $35.
Works fine with the A5IT, however you need to re-pair everytime you power it on.

Re: CoPilot and Canada

Well I broke down and bought it.
So far so good, it seems to work pretty well and is easy to use. Downloading only the maps you need is nice, but it doesn't seem to play nice with Slacker radio, as the audio sometimes plays and doesn't and it crash on me twice when trying to run the two together.

CoPilot and Canada

Now that paid Apps show up with the latest update, I see the option to buy CoPilot. I contacted them directly to ask if they had a trial, and they responded that they did not, but I could refund my purchase within 30 days. They also asked what platform I was going to run it on, and when I told them ...

Re: mp4 with aac supported?

AC3 is the only supported surround sound codec on the Archos, so DTS or AAC surround are not. Easiest way to watch your video is to transcode the audio to either AC3 if you have the Cinema HD plug in or MP3 if you don't. Michael I would just need to do the audio portion? What software are people us...

Re: FM Transmitter auto enable

Like I was saying, how about a "remember last setting".

If you had it off, then it'll be off when you plug in your cable.

If you had it on when you last unplugged it, it should be on again when you plug it back in.

No clicks, everyone happy.

FM Transmitter auto enable

I really love the FM transmitter function with the Archos car kit. However, it is really a pain that I have to "enable" it every time I dock in my car. I think there needs to be a use last setting option for this. It knows when I have plugged in the FM able power cable, so why not just turn on FM tr...

I'm just wondering. i'm still stuck on getting my archos to see my phone as a phone. :x I have a BlackB...

Best way to sync files?

This has been talked about, but I have my videos on my main computer in a folder structure, and I'd like to sync them to my A5IT. I used a piece of software called Always Sync and I would be able to normally hook up a usb drive and create a sync job that would make sure my local folder and the drive...

Re: Cool keyboard that works for Archos 5 IT

Something just doesn't work for me.
I get the keyboard up, and when I type keys i see the "big letter" showing me what key I hit, but it doesn't actually type the letter I touched in the text box.
Some keys do work tho, like the period and the numbers, but not the backspace or letters...what gives?
