    the "universal" software here is what I use... I've noticed he's updated it recently, so the few minor shortcomings may be no longer there even. overall this is a nice piece to play with....

    I know that RR's system,,, the Audi's is similar that it has a button to flip the screen around and reveal the screen.
    Im more into touchscreens but I think this could work out for some installations that can't be used as touchscreens.
    I ordered mine from Amazon and I'll be getting my grubby hands on it LOL

    I had an A8L in recently too, but it was an older one maybe... the screen popped up & out with a lot of chrome trim... looked pretty slick, popped out on ign & retracted when ign off.. think it was an 04, haven't had a new one yet...

    I want touchscreen & controls... I've never been able to live with just the touchscreen as an only interface... way to frustraiting for me, I gotta have a mouse at least.. & hot keys, & ideally an easy access convienient keyboard too, but I still like to be able to just poke something sometimes


    I think your going to like the navigator & use it all over, it's become my favorite so far... I want to get one of the haptic controllers & modify it to do x & y axis too... that will eventually be the "ultimate" controller, but is still lacking in software development so far, & then I'd still have to do my custom mods to it... wish I knew how to write software, but for now the navigator is cool... gonna get the haptic & start to play with it too...

    yeah the navigator is nice to have, no look , no reach to the touchscreen. I thought the feel of it would be nicer in terms of x/y movements but it's still good. Just wish I could change the lights to orange.

    Oh, I'm sure you can. I have the same thoughts on the color orange. Someone will do it and post about it I'm sure.

    I rarely get out to windows anymore, If I do I use my Scorpius P-20 keyboard and that has all I need with my touchscreen.
    Im looking forward to ******* with the Space Navigator,, should be home by Tuesday.. haah..

    I have had a chance to play with the controller in both the A6 & the Q7. I thought they were both very slick and great to use. The exception is entering a location for the Sat Nav. It's just too slow without a keyboard.

    The Audi uses the letters arranged in a circle. A letter is secreted by rotating the knob to the required letter & then pressing down on the knob. After each selection only valid letters remain available. So it does get quicker as you go but it's slooooow.

    The feel of all their controls is still the best. I don't know how they do it but everything feels (and for that matter sounds) exactly as it should

    Screen. Mind. Both are blank.

    I did hate the Navi, but I kinda hate all OEM navi solutions; maybe Im too used to iG.
    I did like the fact that you can still use the thing while you drive, unlike the MB and others; I was using the navi while driving at a 100mph
