    What is the best hardware I can use to control my carpc with the steering wheel controls? Right now I use a RF air mouse for all pc controls. i USE AN EXTERNAL SOUND card sound audiogy by usb, which has a IR remote. But thats mounted in the trunk area. I have a 2003 honda accord

        I ordered this a short while ago:

        Seems like the easiest solution (but not nessesarily the cheapest) if your buttons are the "resistive" type of controls........

          Not a bad solution that or you can solder onto the back of the buttons and run the wires out to the buttons on an old game pad controller. There is free software out there that then lets you take the game pad and convert it to control various apps.
