The functionality included in the DVIO allows control over many internal parameters via serial data link. The Palm IIIC was chosen as the primary vehicle for control of the DVIO.

Why the Palm IIIC?

They are extremely inexpensive either used and or refurbished and are available from a number of sources such as eBay. And they have an RS-232 port which matches the port on the DVIO.

The programming of the Palm device was done in C language using software tools provided by Palm Inc.
