    The "howto" is really pretty straight forward. First you have to uncripple the phone.

    That is well documented here:

    http://howardforums.com/showthread.p...3&page=1&pp=15

    Then you bond with the phone over bluetooth. In linux you use hcitool and rfcomm which are part of the bluez package. There are docks all over the place for this, but if you need help pm me.

    once you are bonded, just set up a regular DUN connection using the "modem". In linux, you use /dev/rfcomm0 as your tty device.

    Verizon gives internet access to it's users, and all it costs is airtime minutes. Night's and weekend are even free! The dialup info is all over the net, but I'll repeat it here for good measure:

    Phone Number: #777
    Username: <your_phone_number>@vzw3g.com
    Password: vzw

    Once you set that up, and your on the EVDO network, you have a 400-700kbps internet connection.

    This is obviously fast enough to stream with. Then you just need something to stream

    I will be putting up an addition to the carpc page which details the OS/software install and config. In that page I will detail my home setup, and how to use vlc to stream.

    Good call on using Gentoo, that's what I use on my laptop. If you need any help w/ getting software suspend to work, let me know. swsusp2 patches work really well and have a lot of options. You could also use ACPI calls to put it in swsusp when the power button is "pressed." It's too bad linux doesn't have a good gps program cuz I would much rather use gentoo in my car than winblows. I know u can wine a couple, but that's just so dirty. Anyone got gps programming skills and want to work on a linux project? I actually know how to program a mapquest type thing, but it uses vertex data in a text file, not maps. I have no idea how efficient it would be either.
