    Looks like someone found one over a year ago: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=51688

    And someone had a problem with it over three years ago: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=16081
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

            I fail to see the use for a knob. Seems kind of bulky anyway.

                Well, instead of reaching for the touch pad to increase/decrease/mute the volume, you can just turn or push the knob. It's easier to scroll up/down a playlist without constantly pushing on the touch screen.

                Yes, It's a bit big...but this was made for a desktop enviroment. But it's smaller then BMW iDrive

                  knob's are handy when you want to adjust the volume quickly.

                  to somewhat redeem this thread for those that may be doing a search in the future:
                  here are a couple cool volume knobs:

                  not 'knobs' but equally as effective:
