    Yeah they aren't for sale yet. If you'd like to pre-order then PM me. I have 13 completed right now but I don't want to send them out the door until I have all 20 in stock.

    As far as the rotary: yes... if it's a mechanical rotary encoder then you can desolder it and use it. There isn't much on the board because it's a very simple circuit. Most of the stuff is done in software (debouncing, calculating the direction, interrupts, etc).

    I've been turning the volume up and down on my laptop all morning trying to get the debounce just right, its been driving the girlfriend INSANE

    well, the simplicity of expanding on your qube looks like its mostly software which is what ive been waiting for to automate a bunch of stuff in my truck

    im on board as soon as you decide to start sending them out, so thats one ... maybe two in the future ... 19 more to go

    Today I added support for an RC5 decoder. This means that the firmware has support from the get-go for receiving remote control signals, controlling an LCD, sending/receiving Bluetooth commands, decoding a rotary encoder, and a ton more

    Keep the poll going people.

    Gear position indicator, when not in manual mode (in manual mode, most cars display that in the dash/clock area).

    It's hard to tell with the windows closed without hearing the engine what gear the transmission is on, specially today with cars having 6, 7 and 8 gears. My Sequoia has six, a friend of mine has 8 in his IS-F, and the new FXs have 7 gears. Not easy.

    That seems more like somethin you would pull out of OBD-II...

    No, you can't. I think only Chryslers with extended OBD data can do that. No Toyota, Infiniti or Lexus (and BMW, Mercedes, etc.) can do that. Only via CAN BUS, but I've never seen it done.

    Is there some sort of sensor that does it already? If you knew what kind of signals came off the stock sensors, you could certainly interface it...

    I suppose, I'd have to research. It shows gear in semi-manual mode, I wish it could do the same in full auto mode. But what I meant to say is that it's output (sensor's) is likely to be a digital message to be decoded by the ECU and then sent to the display in the clock). But it may turn digital only after some other intermediate box does some processing (like with the steering wheel inputs, they leave the steering wheel as resistance values, go to a box (media unit or something) then CAN BUS data outputs to the various devices (bluetooth phone, nav, dvd, etc.)
