    Would be a throwup imo between a Remote/Keypad or a Touchpad (aka, like the laptops use).

    I am currently using a USB joystick with its keys mapped to keyboard keys. Its easy to control with one hand and eyes on the road, and it gets me around my software easily.

    When I'm not moving in the car and need to change settings etc, I have a USB hand held trackball mouse.
