    the normal spacenavigator is rediculously easy to integrate in to an install.. thre screws hold the base on, and only th base.. drop those, and you have 3 mounting screws to mount it in your car. bing bang boom done!

    edit: take a look at the glovepie script thread in my sig if you want to get it working with RR right now

    I 'm not questioning weather I could install the bigger one or not, compare this:

    "....bing bang boom done!"

    to this:


    "...build into an install in a very sleek way"

    , I'm just curious if it's the same as far as any of these softwares are concerned

    Couldn't know for sure without actually reading the HID output from one.

    I presume you are referring to the SpaceTraveler?

    It appears to be a 6 axis deal, just like the SpaceNavigator, and 8 buttons instead of 2. I would be surprised if they used some different scheme for the HID output considering the functionality is nearly the same. Plus their SDK, which I presume just decodes the HID stuff similarly to what we're doing, supports all of their devices.

    So, without having one, and without knowing for sure, I'd wager that the 6 axis hat part of it will be compatible with the stuff we're working on.

    The driver I've written is specific to the SpaceNavigator, as it only supports 2 buttons, and is keyed off of the USB Vendor, and Product ID of this device. It could probably be extended to include other similar devices with some input from folks that own the devices.

    This would be awesome if you could click a button and use it as a mouse replacement (mouse pointer control).

    yeah, that's the one.... I didn't think about the usb vendor & product ID...

    I just kept it simple & ordered the navigator, 2nd day so I may be playing with it this weekend

    You can use it as a mouse pointer. check the dev thread, the driver for that has just been released. if you dont mind going through the hassle of installing two apps and running a third along with RR you can use it to control the RR media player (prev/next, vol up and down, play/pause) and anything else, could even make it do different things on different skin screens..

    but no one seems to want to go the glovepie route for playin with it *shruggs* guess theyll just wait for the driver, and ill go use my space nav to control RR

    oh and it wouldnt be but 4 lines of script in my script to make it act as a mouse pointer.. but thats not a lot of fun in RR

    I got the whole PIE thing working at home now, works like a charm for sendkey functionality for different axis/buttons on the SN.

    Holy COW!. These babies look friggin sweet. I wish I knew about them prior to purchasing the Powermate. Oh well, I got the power mate @ a steal so I'm not going to knock it. Besides, if i do get one of these, I will use it for SketchUp Carputer does not need this advanced tool. Hehe
