    multimedia controller for car pc

    ive been looking for something to control the playlist for my car pc.
    i dont want to use the lcd screen because i would have to look at it every time to push the button
    theres no physical buttons to feel without looking.

    so i searched and searched and all i found was these few options:
    of course the griffin knob
    Contour ShuttleXpress - 5-btn Multimedia controller - Wired - USB
    Logitech NuLOOQ Professional Series - Jog/shuttle controller - Wired - USB
    3Dconnexion SpaceNavigator Standard Edition - 2-btn 3D motion controller - Wired - USB


    are there any others that resemble car stereo inerface more?

    and if thats all we got what is the better and the worst option for the car and why.

    if thres a thread about it already please post a link to it i couldnt find much myself.

    ^ they are also really easy to build your own buttons for-- all the rc joycon is looking for is a difference in resistance for each button

    There is also this http://www.ultimarc.com/ipac1.html which is I have for an arcade machine, but could make ur own buttons in the center console, or hack any device with buttons.

    whats the thoughts of this?
    http://store.antec.com/Product/acces...5-30126-8.aspx

    was wondering if this might work for my application where i want front pannel volume control and buttons for media functions. just don't know if it will work with centrafuse or possibly replace the front end software entirely.
