    but the trackball will move with the vibration of the car, moving your cursor around.

    When I had my touchscreen, I would hit next track once with my finger. Then, when I wanted to skip a song, I would just hit the left mouse button I had wired to my steering wheel, because the cursor would already be over next track button.

    If the trackball rolls around, then you would have to adjust the cursor position each time.

    the only thing still functioning is the buttons, which act just like regular old switches. havent figured out just what I am going to do with them, but I figure the hat can be used like a mouse. I am prolly gonna wire the "turbo on" switch to the cruise control and use the buttons on top for the 2 buttons for cruise. My roommate suggested today that I wire a speaker up to play machine gun fire when I hit the trigger.
    Wonder if you could wire a relay, and a servo to operate the reverse lockout lift from the trigger. Yep, my 900 is a 5 speed stick.
