    For USB host (for plugging in USB devices) you should just need a USB mini-A male to USB A female plug, pending it supports it. I keep getting conflicting information on Google on whether or not it supports it.

    The XDA does not have VGA out AFAIK.

    Edit: It looks like the consensus is that the Universal (aka XDA, and many other names) lacks USB host support hardware.

    You'll need an electronics engineer to add it.

    Pocket PC operating system does NOT support USB hosting. Nor does Windows Mobile 5.0.

    Any pictures of your setup RootBreaker? Which PDA and connection means are you using?

    JimmyFitz, I missed your post earlier it seems. Windows Mobile and it's predecessor Pocket PC do indeed include support for USB host. Unfortunately, it is lacking in some key areas, like usb mass storage drivers (third-party drivers fill the gap, though), but USB keyboards and a few other devices work out of the box. The main limitation is finding PPCs that have USB host taken out to an accessible connector.
