    The trouble with the presenter-to-go is that it will only OUTPUT to an external LCD touch screen. It makes no provision for feeding touches of the external touchscreen back to the PDA.

    For presentations this is fine, but it's no good for an in-car install - you would be able to see the screen output from your PDA but you would not be able to interact with it without touching the screen on the PDA itself.

    Given Up

    Yep, I think that pretty much defeats the purpose of the PDA install. I have given up on the palm install for now. I just do not see the hardware or software support. Some of the Pocket PC PPC stuff is pretty promising. You can now get some of the older PPCs used for as little as you could a palm. This Thread is pretty interesting.

    Pocket PC-based carputer idea.

    The fast startup time and no need for shutdown controler is the big advantage. Also, I think the overall cost would be cheaper.

    Sorry, but by the time you dump massive amounts of $$ into that thing ... get a PPC

    and then run Linux on it....

    You will be much happier

    Whats Bad?

    I am not sure I understand your reply. When you say "that thing" you mean a car computer with windows 98 lite, the PPC project I linked to above, or the palm project with which I started this post?
