    Front End For Pocket Pc

    Is it possible to write a simple front end for an Ipaq Pocket Pc? I am using this as a car pc and thought with the simple interface it would be easy to use since all I am wanting it for is Mp3 and Gps and Phone contacts. let me know what you guys think.
    Thanks

    Yes, it's very possible, either with the Compact Framework or embedded C++/VB. If I had a PDA and more time I'd like to build one...

    It would probably be easier to write a web frontend for a PDA. That way, it would be more versatile and would run on Pocket PC, PalmOS, Familiar Linux, etc.

    Just my $0.02.

    everythings in there for MP3 and GPS ( Ebay CF card antenna / Dest 3 for PPC ) but you will probably need some sort of voice app .

    I use my PPC for lots of stuff

    I read that Advantech makes a CF adapter for IDE drives...as in plugging an IDE drive to a CF slot. That's extremely useful for storing MP3's obviously. you can do a lot of stuff with the latest Windows Mobile OS.
