Backup to memory card

I am using Palm v. 4.0 in a Kyocera 7135.

Whenever I have a power failure (run a battery down) it seems to be when I have been out of the office for a few days and haven't been able to do a Hot-sync. I end up occasionally losing some data which ends up being annoying. (usually a scheduled appt)

Is there an application which will allow the device to backup data to an SD card in the available slot, either manually or automatically?

Thanks,

Kent

Hey, ditto. I'm also using a Kyocera 7135 and have hit the same thing. Ran across BackupMan at palmgear.com the other day. It's only $10 so I thought I'd try it sometime ... but hate to test it out in case it doesn't work. Well, the phone crashed tonight so after a standard restore (which since I sync to my yahoo email account for addresses, etc.) misses a few things like speed dial numbers. And as you mentioned, you loose anything new you've put in since the last hot backup. So, I've been testing out BackupMan tonight and it seems to work great. It installs to the SD card and so after you get a hard crash you just copy the app back and do a restore. You can schedule backups daily or any hourly interval and how many backups to keep. Works great and $10 is quite a bit cheaper than any others I ran across.

I don't know much about the device that you are using, or back up capabilities, but I do know that yahoo has a program that will sync with the palm desktop application (i.e. you upload your palm info to your yahoo account using this program, and then you can download it later, from your home base computer into your palm desktop application). You would have to be near a computer to do this though.
