            the only thing I can think of is the gps knob for my car (see attached).

            The 350Z uses pretty much the same knob, so I was going to head over to a local nissan dealer sometime soon to pick one up.

            It wouldn't be that good for volume, but it looks like it'd be good for an idrive type of application.

            I'm still open to other ideas though

            and for volume, I already use this:

            looks better in person than that pic shows.

              yeah but those knobs don't know what they are talking about and thier spares are over-priced!

                      I had a Sony MEX-1HD that had such knobs!! I really liked them!!
                      I may get 2 of those and use them with the phidgets encoders!

                          The knob in the pic!! Right under the screen!!
                          It rotates and when you push it it acts as a button?

                            oh, I had link in that post which was to another knob completely

                            It does not rotate, but that's not a fault of the knob, but rather a switch beneath it. You put that knob onto an encoder and that problem is solved.

                            It does get used as a joystick and a pushbutton. Looks like it'd work rather well with the pushbutton and joystick (using thumb) part. But perhaps not so well for rotating. A little too smooth of an outside circumference.
