DataViz have announced a new version of RoadSyc. RoadSync allows secure, direct push synchronisation with Microsoft Exchange 2003 and 2007 servers (push email, contacts and calendar). The big addition in version 4 is support for full HTML email, but it also adds a number of usability improvements, and support for task and Contact photo synchronisation.
Finally HTML email support for S60. Probably the biggest defect on Nokia phones. Only thing that bothers me is that why the h**l hasnt Nokia provided HTML support in MfE? Nokia E90 with HTML email would be just about the most powerfull messaging device on the market. Come on Nokia, I dont want pay 50 bucks for it. I payed 600€ allready for the device.
Roadsync 3 really was a pain in the a$$ when it came to memory usage - a good 2.5MB more than the equivalent M4E. Whats more irritating is that it ran as a foreground App rather than a system app meaning that it will conflict with other programs for memory (hence crashing the phone especially when you are browsing with the S60 browser).
Rafe: Have you tested this out fully to see the functionality in action? I have already got a license to this and if it is worthwhile, might upgrade it.. (I dont have the capacity to test it on my N95 at the moment simply because M4E is already on and working..)
HTML would be a relief - I heavily use v3 on my N80 and I hate it mid-way through a thread I reply on my phone and it all ends up as courier new horribly unformatted for everyone.
The memory usage is indeed a disaster - trying to run TomTom and nothing else - if a text comes in it's guaranteed to end in me pulling over to wait for the phone to restart...
Improving the set up would be great - I don't want to sync contacts but if I have to reset the phone (and there have been occaisions where deleting a re-occurring meeting on my my PC has severely messed up the sync on the phone), it forces me to push all my contacts from my outlook, when I want to keep my phone ones. Which means lengthy Nokia suite backups beforehand..
That said I'm two months away from probably going for an N95, or an N96 and I'm still undecided as to whether I should jump ship to M4E and leave the appalling support I get from DataViz for a paid for product. The occaisions I've had to contact them have not been joyous...
