    mini joystick sensor and keyboard button press

    Hi guys. I am ordering the OEM center console for Navigation from Nissan for a 350z. One of the pieces is a nav keyboard and joystick which fills a hole in the console. These items will not function as they are used with the specific Nissan Nav Screen, I will be putting a Xenarc in its place.

    What I was thinking was put small sensors under the keys, and when the key is pressed I can send a signal through the FB and emulate a keystroke. Also like a phidget mini joystick but with better axis control, do the same thing for the oem joystick.

    Are there mini joystick sensors and key press sensors for the FB?

    We do not have those types of sensors unfortunately... But if it is a joystick meant to interface with something already, the sensors should already be there. You just have to get in there and figure out how to make them work.

    Do you have any images or references to this joystick?

    Its gonna be a couple of weeks before I can order it, once I get my hands on it ill snap some pics. this thing is 280 dollars lol. Thats just for the buttons you see, does not include the console. Would be a shame to have the buttons do nothing, would be cool and more OEM if I can rig something up.

    Got it now, where are some pics also looks like they have some micro tactile momentary switches. My goal is tap into those switches and the switch in the middle, its not really a joystick btw, each one of those lines in the picture represent a direction but and you hear a click. 8way switch.

    And have them emulate key strokes.<<< can I tie those buttons into FB?
