Palm has released a highly-anticipated ROM update for its LifeDrive mobile manager.

This makes a number of improvements to the device, including enhancing its WiFi functionality and making its file system more stable.

According to Palm, LifeDrive Update 2.0 makes the following changes:

  • Improved WiFi coverage in low signal areas
  • Improved roaming performance
  • Improved file system stability
  • Crisper, clearer sound quality when listening to MP3 files
  • More flexible multimedia functionality, including file transmission over wireless connections, file saving, and faster recording and playback
  • Better browser performance, including more efficient, faster page rendering
  • Updates VersaMail to version 3.1C for improved ability to attach large documents
  • Upgrade to Docs To Go application version 7.006

What’s a ROM Update?

The ROM is where the operating system and built-in applications are stored. Changes made to the files in ROM are permanent and will survive the device undergoing a hard reset.

Updating the ROM will erase everything that’s on the device, but the data can be restored by a HotSync.
