Two Sidekick Tips

Not sure how useful these tips will be, but here goes:

  • Use IM as a super fast way to exchange information between your laptop and your Sidekick. On my way out to visit a customer this morning, rather than writing down the address to plug it into the GPS, I just IM'ed it to myself. Just add your Sidekick as a buddy on your laptop and you're all set.
  • Surprisingly, the driving directions pages on Google Maps look great on the Sidekick browser. You don't get the maps part, but you do get the directions part quite clearly.

    Again, I discovered this, this morning before heading out to a client. I took the Google Maps link for my directions, ran them through Tinyurl and then IM'ed them to my device. I clicked on the link and was greeted with a nice list of driving directions. Not sure if this is Google's handy work or the Danger's - but either way, I'm impressed.
