    looks nice, but using a mouse is very difficult while driving, don't do it. i'm researching alternative input methods and may end up with a fusion brain and some tactile buttons as my touchscreen died so my lillicrap is now justa vga monitor.

    You will probably spend AT LEAST 2x what you initially budget for your CarPC Project!

    Great mouse for carpc

    i kept searching for a trackball mouse and finally got it suddenly this morning



    its Genius traveler 350. I bought it for 25 bucks. i want to install it some where behind the steering wheel attached to steering column and not move with the wheel as its USB connected

    i have a touch screen but its more comfortable with something near the steering wheel. it can be installed even to vertial surface. similar to steering wheel angle should be fine

    anybody uses this gadget?

    You're probably better off with a rotary controller like a nulooq navigator.
