    Or you can buy a cheap USB keypad, open it up and rewire it to your exsisting controls. I assume your using a front end? If so, most will allow you to use hot keys, you simply map the keypad to those. Its a very cheap solution, but takes so modding.

    PS: no one is ignoring you, it just takes time for us to answer since we are not on here 24/7.

    LOL, during this part of the year the forums usually slow down. It also depends on the topic you are bringing up. If its something that has been covered alot, theyu will ignore because it will seem like your being lazy and not using search. It could also be that people dont know a solution or just are not interested in answering. Ive had it happen to me alot, especially when it comes to the strange ideas I have which require hugeeeeeeeeee modding of my car.

    Anyways, I think the USB keypad would be a cheap and easy way. Once you take it appart the controller for the keypad is very small, id say about the size of 3 quarters side by side and as thin as a quarter. I am actually doing the same project, but my steering wheel didnt come with controls so I am making mine into my driver side arm rest.
