    Using phone instead of IR remote?

    I am curious if anyone is using their phone to control their carPC as oppose to an IR remote?

    Either connect via Bluetooth or USB.

    I have seen some bluetooth remote control software out there, but never any USB.

    If so, I'd like to know what software you are using -- thanks.

    Yes, check for threads on "VNC" and "Remote2PC." Several of us use the internet, bluetooth, and Wifi on our phones to control the CarPC. I personnally like Remote2PC because they were willing to work with me on scaling issues, it can b ued for both WiFi and internet, it has no range limitations, and basically recreates the screen on the PocketPC just like VNC does but with numerous additions for control, input and customization. On the downside, it is payware(ommercial), but not that expensive, setup is akin to RoadRunner (takes some time and effort), and it can conflict with other internet program if you're not careful.
