Not likely. That would require the source-code for the drivers, which the manufacturers are fairly unlikely to release! I know the touchscreen is a fairly generic driver though (used in lilliput, plus the touch panels from digitalww and likely other sources), so perhaps the manufacturer could be badgered to release a driver? Can't see it myself though.Originally Posted by Yuriy

Car PC Status: Complete - Undergoing Software Redevelopment
Why worry about finding CE/Windows Mobile touchscreen drivers. Just get a PPC with Linux.
I've been checkin out the Sharp products for 5 years now.
Very good. http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1759,1103986,00.asp
Perhaps something like this will meet some peoples needs: -
It provides VGA output for any sdcard/cfcard pda. no USB unlike the toshiba, but it does have infra-red with remote. perhaps that can be programmed in a girder-stylee to control software on the pda?
Couldn't you just use the adapter at the begaining of the post and use an extrnal harddrive? But instead of using a ppc, why dont you use a tablet pc instead. There more faster, bigger, have a big enough harddrive in them, and some of them have great audio hook-ups.
Yes, you can use any external USB storage device, be it DVD, HDD, or a card reader. The tablet pc approach is of course better, but what if you already own a PPC and don't want to buy another piece? Actually, I might buy a Tablet PC instead, but I do need a Pocket PC for my work - my software is currently my only income since I don't have a steady job. Not only that, but it's also very convenient since you don't need to spend hours working, you just release something new an collect revenues for the next few month. I need a Pocket PC for testing purposes.Originally Posted by Ranger87
The e740 is indeed very buggy, but I love its touchscreen, its very accurate (unlike the iPAQ's). I might buy an e755 which has all the features plus it can be upgraded to Windows Mobile 2003. It is also possible to install Linux on your PDA, but I beleive the only available distros were created and tested exclusively on iPAQs. Toshibas has too much exclusive hardware in them, like the wi-fi and the SD and CF slots together. Toshiba has abandoned all their PPC models previous to the e800, which by the way is one of the first PPCs to have a VGa screen (640x480). I don't see any use for it in the car though, but it could be useful if I want to look in the future and develop software for this new technology. It's rather expensive for what it does, so yeah, if you don't need a PPC for whatever you need it, get a Tablet.
Um, you could if you have a Toshiba PDA. As it is I have a Dell, others may have Ipaq etc...Originally Posted by Ranger87
Yeah, but there are generic CF USB hubs out there, just plug it in and connect up to 256 devices to itOriginally Posted by GingerPrince
