You can get an IR receiver and use something like Girder or Event ghost to go from IR to keystrokes..
I´ve been running my laptop-based CarPC with in-dash touchscreen for about a year now. Lately I have come up with an idea that I want a steering wheel remote control. I found this http://www.pioneer.eu/eur/products/2...110/specs.html and now I´m wondering if it is anyhow possible to get this work with my Centrafuse? Or have you got any ideas how to get wireless steering wheel remote control to my CarPC?
Pioneer CD-SR110 is a Bluetooth Car Stereo Remote Control. You can try VECTIR for your laptop.
" Vectir is a PC remote control application that lets you control popular media or MP3 players such as Winamp, iTunes and Windows Media Player with a Bluetooth enabled mobile phone or infrared (IR) remote control. Vectir can also control other features of your operating system such as moving the mouse pointer, adjusting the master sound volume and shutting down your computer.
Vectir lets you load playlists, skip tracks or crank up the volume of your MP3 media player without having to be located at your computer. You may also setup a home theatre PC and use Vectir to watch movies from the comfort of your lounge suite or wherever you like.
To use Vectir, you will require a compatible hardware device such as a Bluetooth enabled mobile phone or a USB-UIRT or Tira-2 infrared receiver.
Vectir 2.0 beta is now available!
