    Palm to LCD

    I have seen several links for how to view/control the computer screen on your PDA. What I am looking for is a way to export the palm display to an LCD *without* having any computer hookup. I just want to make the Palm screen bigger. I just know I have seen someone here do this.. I think there is a program someone wrote for the palm but I cannot seem to find it. Dispite trying
    TIA

    Ok. What i feel we (read i :P) need is a full screen, poss animated app for PDA's like ipaq's running pocketpc, that can communicate with girder or directly to winamp/frodoplayer etc. It needs to be two way communication - so that u can tell the comp to play/stop etc, and so that the PDA can see what file is playing/and the playlist.
    I feel it needs to be as independant of connection as possible. So either Wifi, IR, or activesync.

    Ill work on it - if someone can point me in the right direction.

    Don't make it so hard for yourself. Any of the previously mentioned VNCs will work for you.

    At the NY/NJ/CT meet, someone mentioned remotely controlling your CarPC with a PPC. I got my hands on pcAnywhere and pcAnywhere Mobile yesterday and was quickly viewing my carPC's display. It was as if I had a secondary touchscreen cloning my regular 7".

    I'm using an HP rx3715 and can connect by using either bluetooth or wi-fi, but the wi-fi is much better because the higher bandwidth translates into faster screen refresh rates.

    Anecdote:
    Anybody trying to do this over BT, make sure that your PDA can see the Network Access service that your computer's BT adapter provides. I first tried a D-Link DBT-120 bluetooth adapter and my PDA could only find the serial port and file transfer services provided by that adapter. I tried an HP 1900 PDA just to make sure that it wasn't a buggy PDA. Same deal. I ended up calling D-Link and they blamed it on the PDAs I used (Not surprised). I explained that it was odd for their adapter to be able to discover the Network Access service on the PPC, but not the other way around and they kept laying the blame on the PDA. The problem here is that the only way for me to setup a pcAnywhere connection between the two devices is by going through the computer, starting up the network access connection to the PDA and then go back to the PDA to connect through pcAnywhere.

    Then I tried the Belkin adapter plugged into my carPC and both PDAs discovered the Network Access service provided by the Belkin adapter. I could've slapped myself, but I got through it by sending an e-mail to DLink's tech support describing the solution to my problem.

    TouchAmp

    You might wanna check out TouchAmp for controlling Winamp from an old Palm:

    And here is your dead thread resurrection! (sorry)

    I currently have a Kenwood 7" double din as my main screen, won't be hakcing it to use the TS for the CarPC, and have been controlling the CarPC through my Sony Ericsson S710A via bluetooth. That has been cool, but I recently picked up a Palm TG50 for dirt cheap when I temporarily misplaced my NX73V. The little thing has bluletooth, so I will be trying the VNC route tonight. My hope is that I can get Roadrunner displayed on the palm and be able to run it as a remote for that front end. Wish me luck, and I will post the results as I get them. I'll even do up a guide if I get it to work.

    you shouldnt have any problems getting that to work. Its pretty easy to setup.
    you should make a skin for RR that is the same res as the pda screen so you dont have to scroll on the pda.

    Does your kenwood screen have video in? If I didnt want to hack the screen to work with the pc, i would use video out from the pc to the kenwood, just so i could see something (lower quality though) and use my phone(or other remote) to control the interface.

    tried to set it up, no joy whatsoever, if you have some details that might help i'd appreciate them. Keep in mind that the carpc doesn't have an IP as it isn't networked.

    As for the kenwood, that is exactly how I have it setup, I just wanted to use the pda for the cool factor at car shows and for myself.

    Here's a design pic of my setup as it is now.

    Right,

    Using PalmVNC, SoftickPPP, and WinVNC, I got it to work on my TG50 Clie using the cradle. Works well in the cradle, but when i try to connect with the bluetooth, the bloddy thing apparently doesn't support "bluetooth serial port" and won't connect.

    SON OF A!!!!!!

    Ah well, this would definitely be cool if you had a pda with bluetooth serial port support.

    I use a Tapwave Zodiac with mVNC to connect via wi-fi (via a PalmOne SDIO card) to a dediciated dongle on my carputer that is set up for an ad-hoc network. The RoadRunner front end works great with this setup. Going to mess around with a few other front ends though.

    I would fool around with the bluetooth since it is built-in, but in all honesty it really is more trouble than it is worth plus I still use the bluetooth for gps on the palm through mapopolis or tomtom.
