    Hello, I have not posted much on here but have used this forum to root my phone, and find suitable ROM's and Kernels for me. My question is, is it possible to steal things like your phones gps antenna, or wifi antenna through your usb port for use on a pc. The application is for a carputer, the idea being I get in my car dock my phone and blam, I have net gps and wifi ready to go, and yes I know you can buy all these as peripherals for a pc this is just cooler.

    You can tether your phone's wifi or cell data to your PC using USB tether, but that's probably about it.

    Thanks for the reply, been there done that, got the t-shirt, I figured since you can access that part of the phone why not more? I am not an electronics expert by any means but I was thinking that there may be some way through the usb debugging port? (haha is that even the right word?)

    Got it. I'm not sure I can help you too much with that, but good luck!
