  • Idrive look a like button

    As my plan is to get a 5 inch screen to install above my dashboard just for navigation, I was thinking about how to control this software.
    Monitor will not have touchscreen so I need something like a mouse.

    Now I was lloking for something like a Idrive button.
    When you tilt the button to the left the next button on screen is selected,if you tilt to the right then the left button is selected.
    The same if you tilt it up or down.

    And to select just need to press the button. See the picture to get an Idea.:


    Does this excist or do I need to make something myself.

    Setup will be on in my dashboard a normal touchscreen and on the dashboard a second screen without touch.

    That's exactly what i'm looking to do.. I've been investigating for a week or so and it looks like the spacenavigator is the best solution. Mine arrived today so I'm just playing around with it at the moment

      That looks exactlly as what I want
      only wonder if it will work together with a touchscreen. Will it not get confused??

              Just want to purchase one, but I wonder one thing.

              When I use this together with RoadRunner , do I need to make my mouse visible to navigate trough my skin or can it be configure that when I move to a button this one lights up (like it normally does when you touch your screen)

                I am using a Space Navigator in this way with the RBC9 driver. When in windows it emulates a mouse but when in other apps you can have it switch to whatever configuration you like. IT can emulate keyboard, joystick, mouse, whatever.
