    pda (sony clie) screen as rear seat audio control?

    i have a clie peg-tg50 lying around and wonder if I can use this touch screen to display a skinned remote interface for the rear passengers to control music (when the driver allows) and other simple functions, no vid display necessary, and i'm not opposed to hacking it all up if I can get a little guidance on what I can do to accomplish this. Thanks.

    BTW, don't search police me, i did, nothing close enough to help me figure out what I need to do.

    it's a fleeting thought now, since most options require the unit to be plugged into the usb or an internet connection (PalmVNC) but I was thinking of taking the whole screen out and installing it into the rear ashtray, and just using the naked cable and PCB. Too much engineering.
    Would be way easier to just put in a custom remote from a hacked up gamepad.

    It would be pretty cool though.
