    Is there a music control device for CarPC?

    Hi there.
    I'm using my carpc for sometime, and I must admit that control the music when driving is hard/danger.
    Changing the volume, song, album with the wheel or buttons is much easier then look and press the touch-screen. evrey cheap HU has better control.
    I heard there is the spaceNavigator but its a poor use.
    Is there another hardware that could be of use?
    how are you contorling the audio in your car?

    No wheel controls in my car.

    I meant wheel like the spinner knob of the HU.

    and this "fusion brain" I never heard of it. can you link me to it?

    wow the power mate looks really good.

    90% I will buy it

    Is it a good product or the spaceNavigator is better?

    I've use both. The Powermate is great but is limited to 6 functions. I think that makes it easier to use, but you'll have to mate it with a skin that is simple to navigate and that you set the navigation order to by editing it. I've had great luck with the Garmin New Age skin.

    I've also used it with a Mac and Front Row, and it works flawlessly.

    The space navigator is more difficult to control precisely. I found it lacks that positive control of the Powermate. However, it has more functions and some have reported using it in the car and having good success with it.

    I use the powermate with RR, but i have it set to just control winamp and master volume. I use to raise, lower and mute the volume, next/prev track, mute, and pause. it doesnt actually directly affect RR but by using it t manipulate winamp it shows those results in RR with any skin that ive tried
