  • An aftermarket fancy navigation knob?

    I'm after something like the fancy knob from Infinitys:


    Buying the actual infinity one is out of the question because the nav system costs over $300, but I'm curious if anyone knows of anything similar?

    The silver part spins around and then there's the 8 buttons on top.

    Ideas?

      I'm aware of those... I'm really looking for something that has buttons on the wheel itself.

      If I have to, I'll make on myself, but I'd really prefer not to.

            Mmm...that is a sexy knob....

            An idea, which will work - why not get the knob from a breakers, and then mount that to a rotary shaft encoder, connected to the HID from Ultimarc?

            I have the HID, and the rotary encoder, just need the knob with the buttons - will work, and look really cool....

              A Breakers? (My best guess is a junk yard?)

              I've considered that, but it's unlikely because it's part of the entire navigation system, and I imagine most people just transplant the system as a whole. I do still plan to hit up some junk yards and find out, but I'm not too optimistic.

                did anyone succeed in finding something like what OP wanted?

                I'm also after something like this.
