    MMI style rotary encoder install - details

    i plan on using the joystick function of the alps encoder and using mousekeys. that way i can program the iPac to use the number keys and the joystick inputs to control the cursor. i would love to share some ideas with you
    Shameless bump/plug again, but did you see the mouse in my first links on this post? Only four buttons, but a clickable encoder input and a ball for navigation too... and it's cheap enough to have no qualms about hacking apart

    i don't see how you can all work with a mouse in the car, surely it's the worst method of user input while you're driving. anymore info on how much those joysticks cost from BMW?
