Wifi auto connect
 
What do you set the 8530 to so that it auto scans wifi hotspots when i am out roaming around? It seems like i have to manually scan every location...is that right?

I don't think you have to manually scan. It will eventually find the network closest to you. If you want it faster, then you have to scan for it.

Auto scanning is what kills battery life on other PDA's. You need to scan for a WiFi network and select the one you want. If it is a location you go to regularly - book store, coffee shop, bar, etc - once you save that WiFi network it will auto-connect when the device senses it.
