Description

Experience Level: Intermediate
My small company sells the DT366 Webpad, currently running on the Windows CE 5.0 platform. I need to create a new image for the webpad that must include a GPS intermediate driver, and as much functionality as possible - to make it as useful as (possibly) a standard XP type laptop. The Webpad has the Geode GX466 cpu(X86), 256mb ram, 512mb ssd, bluetooth, Cisco wifi (situated in a pcmcia slot), spare CF slot, usb 1.1, Mic and headphone socket outputs.

I require as much functionality as Platform Builder can give me, as I do not want to have to make another image if I decide to use this Webpads for something else. The GPS devices I am going to use will be either Bluetooth or USB, so I require compatibility for both, and the rest is just standard Windows CE stuff.

This is not a new development, as I already have working units, and if I did not need to integrate the gps driver into the image, I wouldn\'t bother with this project. So the main job here is integration of the gps intermediate driver or another third party driver. I have spent some time trying to use Platform Builder to develop the image myself, but just booting to a blank screen on target device, and have wasted too much time trying to get it right (I have never done it before), so have given up on that.

I am based between Aylesbury and High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire in the UK, so if you are close enough, could visit with sample hardware, if necessary. Please note that although I have stated that this job can be done remotely, you will need a target device to proof your newly created image, but I do not intend to post out free samples to remote areas. So all the better if you are either local or have a DT366 to hand at your location.
