I posted this over at the other ppc site. I just want to thank everyone on this site. I got a neutered Verizon Touch Pro and have been able to download all the necessary fixes and cabs to get
GPS, youtube working on my HTC TP.


I finally set up my phone to do all my gps, web, and music in my car, a Land Rover Range Rover Sport.
It is connected to a bypass switch that overrides the built-in car OEM nav unit.

I had a carputer (see my other youtube videos) but the HTC Touch Pro kicks ***.
I was dealing with Road Runner and no album art. The bluetooth GPS always needed to be re-paired. IGo does not run in Windows XP, etc.....
With the HTC TP, I have everything I want. I even use W.V.D to download youtube music videos in mp4 and play them on my phone while I drive.

I wanted a HTC TP because of the miniSD, the GPS, the video out and I can run iGo8, Iguidance and Garmin XT.

Here is the youtube video of it in action:

it's a range rover sport.. I'm pretty sure he says it's his stock screen.

I wonder if it's possible to bluetooth all that data?

I like the charging lights on the Verizon touch pro! The GSM ones just have the glow around the center button.

Looks very nice! I agree with you, these devices are so versatile. The TP is the best pocket pc ever ; )

This is exactly what I want to do in my wife's G35x once I install a double din touchscreen.

Yes, it is the stock factory nav screen that comes with the car. Car has bluetooth built in for telephony and address book.

You can't transfer video data via bluetooth.

mrspeedmaster,

Do you use the Official HTC TV Out Dongle? If so, do you charge your TP at the same time. I don't have the TV Out Dongle but the Audio/Charger one that came with my Fuze. I noticed when I play music in my car thru an Aux. Input and Charge at the same time I hear feedback.

Just wondering if you hear feedback while you charge at the same time?

btw, your set up Kick A$$

Quick question.. Which converter did you use to get the signal from USB to RCA NTSC/PAL? I bought a box from converters.tv, and the signal is not grounding right.. Now that I paid up, i'm sure there is no rush to get my problem resolved, lol
