I have an iPAQ hx2410 running windows mobile 5.  I want to transfer a vga signal to a dumb monitor.  I tried the MARGI card that was designed for the 2003 operating system and it did not work with mobile 5.  I also read a review of an HP SDIO card that indicated it only worked full screen with PowerPoint, otherwise it just put a tiny 640 x 480 image in the upper half of larger screens.  That is not what I want.  Does anyone know of any SDIO or CFIO card that might accomplish my goal of filling a 9 inch screen at something like 1024 x 768 or at least 800 x 600?
If there is no adapter for the hx2410 is their any other windows mobile pocket pc that might be capable of supporting this application?

The Toshiba E800/805 (and possibly e830) had a VGA out attachment as an option. It's an older WM2003se model that isn't sold anymore, but probably very easy to find second hand.
I would imagine that it only output 640x480 though, which is the screen res of that pocketpc.

EDIT: looks like it can do 800x600:

Thanks folks.  I am looking into both of these as possible solutions.  I'll post when I find something out.
