    Who knows if it will even work with windows?? The original one has major issues with driver software and they don't seem to want to bother to fix it. Maybe someone will chime in and confirm it on Android but until then, beware. You could end up with a very handsome paper weight like many of us who bought the original.

    Bummer! The original one worked pretty good with "sendkeys" in RideRunner. I saw where one member got the original one to work on Android but i couldn't even begin to understand how he did it.

    Yeah, hopefully some ginious will take interest in it and adapt it to Android.

    Was the original one that you speak of running W7 or W8? I had no problem in XP but in 7 & 8, if the Griffin is not in focus, it doesn't respond and of course RR needs to be in focus....
