  • Using this very cool touchpad to control ME

    Hi guys,
    just saw this really slick touchpad in the input section and wondered if there's a way to use it to control ME. Maybe using the scroll function for volume, up/down movements to move up/down the selection and left/right click for enter/exit.
    Would that be possible you think?

    Cool idea, I like. There shoud not be any programing thou, its just a mouse, and comtroling funtions in the software with the mouse are already there if im not mistaken.

      Quite good eh? I was thinking of sticking it on my steering wheel and use it as i would with a steering wheel remote

      I know ME gives you the chance of using the scrolling function for volume/scrolling but how do i configure right click to exit to the main screen? Also, ho can i have mouse movements programmed to act as the arrow keys on the keyboard? Would be really cool.
      Many thanks

        The scrolling thing should not be an issue, but as of now MediaEngine doesn't employ any type of Gesture recognition... Maybe an external program can emulate it for you.

          I have been using one for years.
          Its great for precision movements to small for the LCD touch...
          I cant find any pics at the moment, but I have mounted it in a Honda Civic just above the e-brake / center console / arm rest, and also in a CRV
          The crv mounting had to be a bit more creative - I bolted a slide rail under the center console tray, and used high power magnets to hold the touch pad to the rail - its easy to remove if I ever "fold down" the center tray (if you own a CRV, it probably makes a lot more sense.
