    PocketPC Integration

    What are the general possibilities to integrate MapPoint with mobile solutions? For instance I want to geocode some locations, optimize the route between them and send the result to a mobile device (PocketPC) with or wothout GPS capabilities and with or without routing software.

    TIA

    I think that the simplest use case for you is :

    - Geocoding or whatever you need but on the PC site (server)

    - Transferring the HTML result to the Pocket PC (IrDA, Bluetooth, WIFI, or gsm cell network)

    - Viewing the HTML file on the Pocket PC (with, for example, a HTML control or one of your own)

    Please let me know if you need further advice.

    Thanks for your reply.
    Your advise has the advantage to avoid license costs for every mobile device. In my case, all mobile devices are on cars which may never or seldom reach the office and have to communicate over a mobile phone line. So sending maps to them can be slow and expensive. Additionally the drivers need the possibility to use a navigation system. They should get the most of his travel targets from the office (maybe as geocoordinates), pick this targets from a list and add some targets on the fly, route or calculate optimal routes and have navigation support (GPS integration). Maybe they should get route recommendations from the office.

    Thanks again
