Nice one, but at 160 bucks, forget it.
has anyone used this device as input? it would fit perfectly on the steering wheel, and would be really usefull- esp when surfing/searching songs.
im going to be spending what, $130 or so for the gyration kb/mouse setup- i already have the mouse for my htpc, i love that thing. $160 isn't a lot of money in the grand scheme of things.
yea but i would rather spend the 160 bucks on say upgrading to a Xenarc screen or getting a motorized in dash type screen or something that will make a difference.
I say go cheap on the trivial items

You still have to touch the pad, and the gestures look awkward. Now if you had severe carpal and couldn't operate a mouse, maybe this would be a useful product.. my $.02
alright kiddies- there's going to be no fold out screens, or any of that crap. i've been in car audio for almost 8yrs. i've also been working with computers for more than 10yrs. i've done my homework on this: a screen will be mounted into the (custom) center console. it's most likely going to be an alpine, bc it's just about the best quality- and im using the alpine pxa h700 as signal processor (opt in). optical between the computer (under passenger seat) and the controller unit, mounted under the screen. im not skimping out on trivial s***. i just wanted to know if anyone had used one of these pads before. hell, making a few gestures in the center of my steering wheel is much easier, let alone safer (when driving) then fumbling for a remote.
Are you sure you want to be putting that on your steering wheel? Since you mentioned safety, I'd rather have my airbag (unless your car predates airbags, in which case nevermind.)
For those who like the idea but find the price (or size) offputting - I think there are some software out there that allows you to do the same thing with a standard touchpad.
how is alpine going to be the best quality when they arent vga?Originally Posted by do7d

He can make those 234 lines look twice as good if he spends more for the name Alpine
