    Griffin Airclick + mappable plugin

    I think this is perfect solution for remote. Small, neat, wireless.


    First there was a winamp plugin rebuild by Dmitry Fedorov to a multimedia plugin. I didnt liked the OSD whenever the button was pressed so wheeler989 have changed a bit and it is working now flawless. Here is short descripion what it can do:

    1) Normal operational mode will send multimedia keys like play/pause, next, prev, vol up and vol down to which ever application will process them.

    2) Holding down Volume buttons will continuously send volume commands. Same for Next and Prev buttons.

    3) Holding down Play/Pause button for one second and a half will switch between "Arrow Keyboard" and "Multimedia Keyboard" modes.

    4) In "Arrow Keyboard" Play/Pause button is an Enter and other buttons are Arrows.

    5) Holding down Play/Pause button for five seconds will shutdown the computer.


    Keys Multimedia mode Keyboard mode Hold 1.5 sec Hold 5 sec
    Play/Pause Play/Pause Enter Switch modes Shutdown
    Next Next (Ch+ in WMCE TV) Arrow up
    Prev Prev (Ch- in WMCE TV) Arrow down
    Vol up Vol up Arrow right
    Vol down Vol down Arrow left

    That is one of the best solutions I've seen.. I lost the steering wheel remote I had configured from my last carputer and have been needing to get another.. This would fit the bill.. It would be a lot better if it connected to the steering wheel though.

    Hey guys, i come from sweden and is new here. i'm in the process of building an configuring my carpc. i have bought this keyboard:
    thougth of sharing what i will be using



    it's called:
    Amitech Mini keyboard (don't know where you can buy it in the us)

    can be connected to either pc or tv

    mousepad up on the right

    7m of range

    9,5" x 4" x 1"

    i've tested it on other computers and it's really confortable, i plan on mounting it to the dash instead/at the place of a 2din to be able to do small start/stop music, change track and volume while driving and also make it easy to remove and use hand-held when the car is standing still or for the passenger, the screen will be moved more to the rigth/in front of the passenger

    Chordite chording keyboard && bluetooth keyboard

    If you want one-hand full-101-key keyboard, look at making yourself a Chordite keyboard. http://www.chordite.com/

    I resell a bluetooth keyboard module which can be used to make a custom bluetooth keyboard. Linked off http://russnelson.com/ . 20% off for mp3Car users (but you must mention mp3Car).

    Note that these are separate things. I bought a supply of the latter hoping to use them in the former, but mmmmm, not so happy-making. No access to the firmware, so FAIL. While they don't work for chordite, they can be made into a great little bluetooth keyboard.

    You could try one of these. It's Lenovo's version of the Logitech Mini DiNovo, but a whole lot cheaper. Lists for $60, but it regularly has discount codes that bring it down to ~$35. It's missing F-keys, but has most of everything else. Does pretty much everything I need on a normal basis. If I need to do something more, I'll hook up a full keyboard.
