PDA to PC Screen -- Senior Moment

by WildClay / June 8, 2010 6:56 AM PDT

While hunting for another utility for my HP iPaq 111 (WM 6.0) I saw a product that said it would let you see (I think control also) your PDA screens/apps with an ethernet or WiFi connection in your LAN / Home network. Since that was not what I was looking for I moved on.

Now I see a potential use and have hunted cnet downloads (where I saw it the first time) by every search criteria I can think of and can't find it, the senior moment is my inability to remember something I saw 2 days ago...

Anyone know of such a product? (as in the name of vendor)

I use/recommend Pocket Controller Pro, a solid option that includes one year's worth of free updates and excellent technical support. There's a free trial available, so give it a good run for its money before making the decision to dole out some of yours. Happy

Hope this helps,

That was what I saw, same product, thanks for the link and name, I will give it a good run before buying, but if it does what it says it does, then I will be all set.

iPaq 211 WM 6.0 is the closest model to your 111. In the collection is the HTC Touch Pro 2 WM 6.5 along with Treo 700wx, ipaq rx3115 and Pharos m619.

Why so many? I write the apps.

That is a lot of PDA's, I spend the first half of my career as a programmer and then had a lobotomy so I could move in to management.

I still develop but mostly for things I want, except on PIC microcontrollers were I develop custom apps/control circuits, usually for very one-off type applications (will never make me rich :).
