I use PocketMoney from Catamount Software to handle my mobile entry.  
It has a Palm style interface, but it also has a hotsync conduit that  
appends entries to a qif file on the base machine  each hotsync. If  
you forget to delete the qif file on the base machine after importing  
to gnucash, you end up with the "Are these duplicates?" dialog during  
your next gnucash import, but that's a minor annoyance. One of these  
days I'll write a script to take care of that.

Catamount does support Treo Palm OS versions. I don't know if they've  
caught up to the 700 yet.
