Amazon.com Product Description

Instantly transform your Handspring Visor into an MP3 player with the MiniJam Springboard module from InnoGear. Just drag-and-drop MP3 files from your desktop to the MiniJam using the included transfer program, then listen to CD-quality sound on your Visor--and you can even read e-books and view images.

The MiniJam is compatible with the Springboard external expansion slot from Handspring, which provides for fast, easy, plug-and-play installation of the MiniJam to the Visor. No software drivers or special adapters are needed.

Using the included 64 MB MultiMediaCard, you can store about 30 minutes of MP3 audio. The MiniJam comes with two MMC slots, allowing you to store up to 128 MB (using two 64 MB MMCs). It is compatible with both PC (Windows 98 or 2000) and Mac (Mac OS 9.0 or later) systems that support a USB connection. Transfer files from your desktop to your Visor with the easy-to-use MJLoader application.

The MiniJam comes preloaded with several multimedia applications. The MiniJukeBox MP3 player enables you to control all functions--such as play/pause, fast-forward/reverse, volume, playlist, and equalization--by tapping the Visor's screen. You can also access these functions via buttons on the top of the MiniJam module. Additionally, the MusicMatch Jukebox desktop application is included along with an upgrade code to MusicMatch Plus (a $19.95 value).

You can use the included Peanut Reader to store and read e-books, newspapers, and magazines, which can be downloaded from Peanutpress.com (most books use only a few hundred kilobytes). You can also transfer photos and images to view on your Visor using AlbumToGo from Club Photo. Images can be viewed individually or in a slide show format, and you can easily add notes and descriptions to images and beam files to other Palm OS handhelds. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Use for a Redundant Handheld: MiniJam at the gym
I just got a MiniJam and attached it to my old handheld (Prism) for workouts at the gym. When I got the new Treo, my Prism threatened to become excess. Repurposing it for entertainment seemed to be the thing to do.

Intuitive Operation / Reasonable Setup
This is only the second Springboard module that I have used (Eyemodule was the first). I was pleased to find that MiniJam works intuitively. I am typically put off by set up procedures involving disks and devices, but it was painless. I would have been less daunted by set up if the instructions were printed as a simple 1, 2, 3 on the outside of the box instead of the junky graphics. The unit is a lot less junky than the pictures on the packaging seems to indicate. Once it was set up, it couldn't be easier to use. It is intuitive, taking advantage of the familiar icons of traditional products like a cassette tape player and (browser-style)juke box.

Function in the Gym Environment
OK, I wouldn't say that the earphones would never fall out; running on the treadmill would require a different listening apparatus. For my workouts, though, the MiniJam worked great. I am substituting it for a Walkman tape player, so the key benefits were being able to switch to songs that I felt like hearing without winding and longer battery life -- no more droning tape. The drawbacks were losing the earphones once during weightlifting and initially getting the Prism situated on me so that I didn't inadvertently bump the buttons.

Key Observation
When I got my first handheld, I didn't feel compelled to use module expansion. However, it's amazing how when I have two of them the primary one does all the calendaring and traditional functions and -- with the Springboard platform -- the second one gets used more as I imagine Handspring had intended: sort of a Swiss Army Knife of electronic products. I would have still kept the Prism for playing games (any Wordlet enthusiasts?), but it has a lot more life left in it than that.

I recommend the MiniJam. It's just what you'd expect your Springboard MP3 player to be.

2-0 out of 5 stars Battery-hogger, slow to store and buggy
I tried this thing out for two weeks.
4 weak points:

1. It takes soo long to transfer music to it.
30 minutes per 1 hour of music. This is a drain on the batteries and your time.

2.It's buggy. It Hard-Reset (losing everything on my handspring) my Handspring twice, the thing soft-resets my Handspring soo often, either by taking it out of the springboard slot before it's good and ready, or it just freezes. The User-interface could be much better.

3.It sucks batteries like you won't believe.
It suggests you get special "NiMH" batteries that are $$$ for two, plus you have to get a recharger, so that it can play longer. Using normal Alkaline batteries, you need to stop listening every bit of time so the batteries don't kill too fast. Otherwise it'll die without warning.

4. Serious design compromises. Not being able to put the cover back on the handspring sucks. Also, it really adds to the size and weight of the Handspring.

There is one minor element: Compact Flash cards are still very expensive, although the price will down with time.

3-0 out of 5 stars Real disappointment
To sum it up: it's not a bad little player, just disappointing in almost every way! Get yourself a stand alone module with more memory.

I'm returning my InnoGear module. What a disappointment. I listened to music for about 10 minutes and wiped out almost a third of my battery. The file transfer can only access the 2 MB section of the module, not the removable (and expensive!) media. Data transfer is slow and I'd recommend no less that 128 MB storage for reasonable listening. I had planned to keep this module in all the time but when it is in you can't put on the protective cover. The photos in the photo album are awful on my b/w screen-- not worth the time it takes to load them.

It simply doesn't live up to the hype.

5-0 out of 5 stars MiniJam Rocks!
I got one for my birthday from my wife. It was easy to set up and get music onto and I basically live with it on my ears. I have bought an extra 64mb MMC card so not it holds over 128mb of music....

MiniJam Rocks!

5-0 out of 5 stars At long last
INNOGEAR has a great product here even with delays in shipping and mismanagement in publicity.

Don't be worried about the form factor. The MiniJam is small yet effective. USB transfer rates for the MP3's are reasonable but keep in mind the rate is not the fastest.

The built in file mover works as advertised. Nonetheless it was disappointing that the MiniJam did not ship with the ability to store files on the MMC cards. INNOGEAR seems to be getting their act together so I expect to see this functionaility released with the software update.

All in all this is a great product if you are in the market for a toy for your toy.

If you're looking for a MP3 player for going out jogging... get a stand alone. If you love toys go for this one! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not what expected.
It has some compatibility problems with the SanDisc MMC that came with the MiniJam. I formated the disc and then I couldn't use it again! I kept getting fatal errors, even with the patch! Also, the 64MB on the MMC is only for music downloads. You cannot move files from your PDA to the MMC with the program provided. You can only use the 2MB of flash on the MiniJam module for PDA storage, which goes down to 1MB with the preloaded software. The MMC are also expensive. Better off with a MiniDisc player with cheap minidiscs than expensive MMC that store only about 10-15 songs per 68MB MMC. Not a value!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Product, would be great with as stand-alone!
I chose this MP3 player over the Sounds Good because it offers the Peanut Press Reader. I also found it at a better price. My only recommendation for this MP3 is that they should look into making something similar to the SoundsGood energy clip so that you can use it as a stand-alone unit, and you don't need to take your Visor with you. I think it is great and I love the different 'skins' it offers! However, as far as I can tell, you can only use the provided memory for music, not the peanut press books.

5-0 out of 5 stars Durability, Style, and Versatile!
I would like to start off this review by letting everyone know that I was on Amazon.com when I was lokking for an mp3 player, tons of them were [...] priced and they didn't have the options I wanted! I happened to look over to the right of my screen and saw a recently reviewed item, WOW it was an mp3 player, so I checked it out, even though the price was out of my range. I printed out the information to compare it with the other I had chosen, and read the review for the Minijam...a five star review...and the only one on the page. Well I was dissapointed with the price of the MP3 player, but not all of the wonderfull features. At the point I was reading the technical data, I had no idea you needed a Visor to use the MINIJAM, I found this out later after I bought the thing on [...], but that did not bring my hopes down, it was a great product and I even found a brand new visor on Ebay. So I get the visor and the minjam in the mail and hook them up together and put all of my Mp3's I can onto it, then plug in the headphones they come with, those headphones are not good headphones, but I had some nice [$] Sony ones that worked great. But the design of the Minijam is nice and goes perfect with the visor the picture viewer and Peanut reader are very nice as well. The ability to turn off the visor while listing to mp3's is great when in school, or riding a bike, or working. But even better I was riding my bike at about 15mph and the visor slipped out of it's case (because of my own dumb fault) I was on a gravel road and taking a sharp turn, well the player and visor hit the ground at I only had a couple scratches and the minijam was still playing to perfection. The different settings on the minijam are very nice as well along with going from song to song. But the player looks very cool and the best thing is no one knows what they are! The memory cards are nice and it only takes about 10 minutes to Hotsync the mp3's onto the minijams 32mb cards that are very compact. Additional memory is a key to mp3's and the extra 2mb that the minijam provides for the visor will kepp you out of trouble with memory problems. Handspring did a great thing teaming up with Innogear. This product is nice, I got mine for [$], and the visor afterwords for [$]. Buy one you will not be let down. The sound quality is great and the ability to put new skins on the player always will let you expand onto better things. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Best MP3 player for the Visor Handheld
I have been using this MiniJam for my Visor Platinum for the past month, and it's the only Spring Board Module I own. Although it's rather bulky, the sound that it offers is great! I do have two 64MB MMC cards installed into the MiniJam, to offer me with 128MB of MP3 audio. Depending on your point of view, 128MB can be big, or it can be small, depending on what bit-rate you "convert" your mp3's to. 128kbs being CD quality or 96kbs being near CD quality, it all affects the amount of songs that can be stored on your two MMC cards.

Always carry spare batteries with you, or opt to purchase Innogear's MiniJam Power Pak. The earphones that came with the unit totally sucked, as one of the ear buds did not work straight out of the box. Buy a "real" set of earphones/headphones.

I had no problems with software issues. Plays great all the time! I would highly recommend this unit to anyone with a Handspring Visor, although I could not give it 5 stars, as Innogear gave me an insight.....they will come out with their new version of the MiniJam, which will be smaller.

2-0 out of 5 stars Sounds great BUT...
The sound is great on the MiniJam 64MB MP3 player but the user guide directions are vague. The guide illustrates step by step what to do but never discusses what to do in the event that their directions don't work. So naturally one would think to call technical support which is what I did after reading the guide and was still unable to download music to the player. Not only was I on the phone with a technical support woman for thirty minutes who didn't want to deal with the problem and kept directing me to the web page but then she mocked me in a silly voice to her coworkers as she poorly covered the phone. She claimed that I "didn't have time to read the guide" (I had told her that I was calling because I had read the guide and the instructions did not produce the result that it said it would) and mockingly bemoaned "it's not downloading" in a whiny voice. My question is, why the heck is there a technical support department if they don't want to support their products or help their customers? It was clear to me also that she was not familiar with the product enough to help me out adequately anyway. I really want to return it after that experience and after reading the other reviews about the glitches I am beginning to suspect that it truly is the MP3 player and not me, thus further encouraging me to return this item. I am going to give it one more chance but now I feel as if I can't call technical support for any useful advice.

2-0 out of 5 stars it's the best out there, but ...
My MiniJam has crashed my Visor Handspring Platinum several times (any time I select "Playlist", for example), and when I asked Customer Support, was told that "a software release is scheduled for today, but as of my last check it hasn't been posted."

Also, it doesn't work when your PDA has gone into sleep mode, requiring you to stop in your tracks, turn it back on, futz with the stylus, and then operate the MiniJam controls if you want to adjust the volume, skip a track, etc. The MiniJam is really nice to work out or just walk around with, but it sure needs a helluva upgrade.

4-0 out of 5 stars There's always a glitch!
This product would be considered a "5" out of "5 Stars" but unfortunately I can only give it a "4" account of the fact that InnoGear is shipping these units with a defect that does not allow complete formatting of addtional MMC cards which thereby limits the allowable storage capacity to 64mb's. This is a known-bug as confirmed by thier Tech-Support. Once this condition is rectified I will then give it a "5-Star Rating"

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product-Excellent Price
I was able to use this product straight from the box. 64mb of RAM is a good start (about 1 hr of CD quality music). The MiniJam is expandable to 128 MB. I love the included 'extras' like Music Match Jukebox and the ability to create your own MP3 files, the Peanut Reader, and Album to Go programs. The additional 2MB of file storage space is a definite plus, especially if you have the standard version of the Visor. The only negative is the flimsy leather case included with your Mini Jam-won't protect your Visor from a fall. Would strongly recommend an Otter Box to protect your Visor. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars fine, useful and cheapest way to listen your favorite ones
OK, at the beginning you don't receive many clear instructions about how to handle your mini jam; some problems to realize how it's the better way to use it, but finally when you get through you got a very cool little tool which is much fun than others (and comparatively much cheaper too -you don't use any battery at all!)The only handicap: it takes you about 30 minutes to load your music on it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Nothing but problems
I've had nothing but problems with my minijam. First it wouldn't work when I put it in my Visor. It's supposed to just power up but it wouldn't. When it finally did, I encountered one problem after another. Numerous times I've had to reset my visor, Re-install the palm desktop software, reformat the MM Card because all the songs mysteriously disappear and the card is suddenly unformatted, and I've had plenty of fatal errors which required re-booting my computer. The customer support is okay but now I'm supposed to pay shipping charges to send back the faulty product to Innogear. So if you do buy it don't purchase it directly from them! When it works it's fantastic but overall it's a major disappointment.

1-0 out of 5 stars Had Big Problems With Mine - Disable HOTSYNC???? WHAT???
The concept is great...the end result leaves a lot to be desired. For starters there is no installation info. Insert the disk and print out the Adobe instructions...CHEAP! Easy to install but you have to disable Hotsync on some...which was mine and it's only a year old. Then I would insert it in the back and it would play but when I set it down and I don't mean drop...set it down it would reset everything and give me a fatal error and reset my palm. Then I would have to turn my hotsync back on, sync up and try again. As for online help it's ok but nothing special. I don't recommend this product. If it's not built in already...don't add it.

5-0 out of 5 stars BUY THIS ITEM!!!!!
If you own a Visor handheld, I would purchase this item. It is great especially during the times you are doing things where you dont wanna be bothered. I use it where ever i go. It is really cool. Buy this, and you wont be let down.

The InnoPak/2Vflash memory does not rely on the Visor battery to provide continuous datastorage, so the data stored on InnoPak/2V is safe even if you lose all your dataon the Visor internal memory due to depleted batteries or accidental batteryremoval. A few quick taps of your stylus will make the usual beeps and chirps ofthe Handspring turn into silent, pager-like vibrating alerts. The vibration isstrong enough to feel through a leather case or your coat pocket. ... Read more

  • No drivers or setup needed
  • Adds an extra 2 MB of memory to the Handspring Visor

Product may be ok Just don't buy from [third party seller] they are thieves. Ordered thi item never received it. These bums sent it by
untraceable shipment. I lost my money, and they got a rebate from
Amazon for the transaction.

4-0 out of 5 stars works well
needed a quiet solution to my pda alarm and a little extra storage space. This 2MB vibrating module was the answer. works well and is very reliable. set up and file storage are easy and it kept me from being embarassed during meetings when i need the alarms on to remind me of something.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Value
When I got mine, I puchased two... one for my friend's birthday, and one for me. We have both had very good expirences with them.

The file mover application is very easy to use. It's especially nice, because you can back up your address book, and memo's, to do lists, and all that. You can set the length of the vibration from anywhere to 1 second all the way up to one minute. THe vibrating works nicely. And in both mine, and my friends experiences, it is definately not noisy. Actually, it is one of the least noisy vibrations I've heard. It's quiet enough that I can let it go of in my American Lit. Class, when everyone is reading, and have no one hear it. When it's on a desk, that's a different story, though. It is powerful enough to notice in a coat pocket, or the cargo pocket of your pair of pants.



Overall, I gave this product a five. It did exactly what it is supposed to do. It stores 2 megs worth of applications, and it vibrates. Plus, it does it all without affecting your battery life. For the price, it's definately an addon worth buying.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product/Support
I am extremely happy with the product and support that innogear gave me over the toll free number. The InnoPak/2V is a great device, yes the vibrating alarm is not "Totally Silent" As it is strong, but for it to get my attention while inside a leather case loosely on my belt it is just what I wanted, In a Quiet meeting, I would recommend not putting it on the table. It may be distracting, But in your hand it may draw attention to people closest to you, but as I have sat through countless meetings at a HUGE Corp. A little bzzz would hardly distract people.

If you carry your visor in your suit jacket pocket or on a belt clip and dont want to miss a TO DO. This is EXACTLY what you need!

FYI- I love using Diddlebug to scratch a to-do and then add an alarm for later.

3-0 out of 5 stars Strong vibrating alarm, but NOT silent!
The InnoPak vibrating alarm module does a good job of getting your attention with a quite strong vibrating alarm, but it definitely is NOT silent! It's the noisiest vibrating alarm I've ever heard, and I have had a number of cellphones and pagers over the years. If you need something that will get your attention better than the relatively weak speaker of the Visor, this module is for you, but if you want something that will be a discrete alarm during meetings or at the theatre, I don't recommend it. By the way, the 2MB storage works just fine -- exactly like the 8MB flash module with the same File Mover application. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Instantly transform your Handspring Visor into an MP3 player with the MiniJam Springboard module from InnoGear. Just drag-and-drop MP3 files from your desktop to the MiniJam using the included transfer program, then listen to CD-quality sound on your Visor--and you can even read e-books and view images.The MiniJam is compatible with the Springboard external expansion slot on the Handspring Visor, which provides for fast, easy, plug-and-play installation of the MiniJam to the Visor. No software drivers or special adapters are needed.

Using the two included 32 MB MultiMediaCards (MMC), you can store 60 minutes of MP3 audio. The MiniJam comes with two MMC slots, allowing you to store up to 128 MB (using two 64 MB MMCs). It is compatible with both PC (Windows 98 or 2000) and Mac (Mac OS 9.0 or later) systems that support a USB connection. (Note that serial connections are not supported by the MiniJam software.) Transfer files from your desktop to your Visor with the easy-to-use MJLoader application.

The MiniJam comes loaded with several multimedia applications. The MiniJukeBox MP3 player enables you to control all functions--such as play/pause, fast-forward/reverse, volume, playlist, and equalization--by tapping the Visor's screen. You can also access these functions via buttons on the top of the MiniJam module. Additionally, the MusicMatch Jukebox desktop application is included along with an upgrade code to MusicMatch Plus (a $19.95 value).

You can use the included Peanut Reader to store and read e-books, newspapers, and magazines, which can be downloaded from Peanutpress.com (most books use only a few hundred kilobytes). You can also transfer photos and images to view on your Visor using AlbumToGo from Club Photo. Images can be viewed individually or in slide-show format, and you can easily add notes and descriptions to images and beam files to other Palm OS handhelds.

You can expect five to seven hours of continuous playback time from the MiniJam. Note that when the MiniJam is inserted into the Handspring Visor, the battery indicator will not show the true capacity of the battery--it only represents the voltage of the batteries. For optimal use of your batteries and the MiniJam, do not replace them until the "low battery" warning message has appeared on your Visor handheld's screen. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not quite there
The playback of the music on this unit sounds good. It has many problems that outweigh this positive. The worst problem is that it caused my Handspring to lock up quite often causing a soft reset and sometimes a hard reset. It also ate batteries very quickly. I even got a AC adaptor when I was loading the files and a AC adaptor for the car. It still used batteries too quickly.
Also, It takes way too long to load mp3 files on onto it. Innogear was offering a speedloader to load the mmc file faster. Minijam uses a propietary format on the mmc card so you can't just buy any mmc card reader.
You cannot store any kind of file except for mp3 on the mmc cards either.
This is a product that has potential if Innogear will address all of the above problems. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice but flawed
This is a very small, simple and useful system. It is a snap to install and has just enough features to replace my portable CD player. However, it has a major flaw...it is very very very slow to load new songs. It takes me as long to add 8 new songs to my Neo as it would to just burn a new CD for my Sony portable CD. (Yes really). It also has the expected, and fixable (though not for free...) problem that 32 megs. just isn't enough memory for Mp3 playing. A 64 meg player would be much more fun (though I dread the idea of loading 64 megs into my InnoGear!)

4-0 out of 5 stars Almost Perfection
The MiniJam By Inno Gear is one of the best Springboard Modules out there, despite all of the setbacks and other problems that affected the dilivery of our modules, I must say that the MiniJam is the best because it combines 2 of the most usefull functions (memory storage MP3 playback) avilable to Visor Users, this is what the Springboard slot is about. My only gripe is that you can't store PALM OS files on the MMC cards only on the 2 megs of FlashROM, but that is suposted to come later as a software upgrade. Great Module. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The InnoGear 2 MB flash module plugs into your Springboard slot to giveyou an extra 2 MB of memory, which you can use to store any Palm OS applicationor database file using the preloaded file mover application. The InnoPak/2Vflash memory does not rely on the Visor battery to provide continuous datastorage, so the data stored on InnoPak/2V is safe even if you lose all your dataon the Visor internal memory due to depleted batteries or accidental batteryremoval. A few quick taps of your stylus will make the usual beeps and chirps ofthe Handspring turn into silent, pager-like vibrating alerts. The vibration isstrong enough to feel through a leather case or your coat pocket. ... Read more

Features

  • Provides a silent, pager-like vibrating alert
  • No drivers or setup needed
  • Adds an extra 2 MB of memory to the Handspring Visor
  • Does not rely on the Visor battery to provide continuous data storage
  • Special blue circuit board inside gives off a cool bluish glow

3-0 out of 5 stars Works pretty good, but.......
It's a bit hard to turn off. It keeps vibrating even after you press to turn it off. I wish this also had an LED that flashes when something comes up on the Handspring.

I don't use it much, unless I'm in a meeting. I don't bother other people when I have a message getting my attenion.

2-0 out of 5 stars It does what it is supposed to do but 2MB is not enough
I bought this module to fill it up with pictures of my family and to use the Vibe alarm in cases where sound would get me into trouble. Hey, I almost forget about the color update for my Prism. I would buy another if it had more memory like 16 or 32, but 2MB is like having pennies in your pockets. I would suggest getting the MemPlug, which gives you a lot of features for a reasonable price.

2-0 out of 5 stars Nifty, but not without problems...
I was very excited about getting this product -- the idea of no longer annoying the folks around me when my alarm goes off (which is frequent, I set lots of reminders for myself in the way of timed floating events) appealed to me greatly -- but now, after having had it for a little while, I'm afraid I'm a bit dissapointed. First off, the vibration action is a bit loud. Now, this is probably a side effect of the fact that it's also fairly powerful, which is a good thing, especially if you wear your Visor in a belt-clip holster, as I do... But the amount of noise, while far from huge, was a little bit annoying. That, though, wasn't too big of a deal -- it was still a lot quieter than the speaker, and yet it was easier to detect, because I could feel it, even in noisy environments. The big deal thing was that at times it has "spontaneously" (I haven't been able to track down the exact scenario that causes it to happen -- it seems pretty random, so far... There haven't been alarms, and I haven't been touching the visor) turned itself on (i.e. turned on the vibration motor)... The only way to turn it off was to either pull the module (which worked fine without causing any detectable problems) or to go to the "test" application, and hit the "Off" button. When the visor is with you, this is a mild annoyance, but once I had it sitting on my couch, and came up to it after a time elsewhere in my apartment, and heard (ok, maybe the loudness is a good thing? ;-) it vibrating... I have no idea how long it had been on, but my batteries, which I'd put in a few days earlier, were now close to depleted. So, if you're going to use this, I suggest you put it in before going into the movie theatre or meeting or whatever, and leave it out the rest of the time. (Also note: The problem of the module turning itself _may_ not be a problem with the module itself... it's much harder to tell if this is happening with other modules, and I _have_ noticed a surprising rate of battery drain with one of my other modules installed, but not in active use. Either way, this is something to be aware of with something that takes as much power as a motor, so I thought it best to state it here.)

3-0 out of 5 stars 2mb extra ram
2mb is a small amount of memory. but it is quite large and can store many apps. I stored all of my important files on it and even after My visor battery died, my files were still safe, which is good because I would have been really perturbed. My second favorite feature was it got rid of those annoying squeaks and turned it into a vibrating action. But I kept getting it confused with my pager. ... Read more
