    I've written some software with some help from others on the boards here. It basically intercepts the inputs from the space navigator, and will perform various actions based on the input, including gestures. Check my sig for a download link.

    It's actually fairly sophisticated, but it's complex to configure and consequently not many people have adopted it. It got a bit sidelined since I adapted it to take mouse input as the result of another consulting gig I was working which required mouse input (gestures mostly) to trigger actions as a proof of concept.

    I do have a config utility, which I haven't really completely banged out, but should upload and document it a bit better.

    Sadly, I'm currently busy with another consulting gig, so it may be a bit longer before I can get back focused on this, but I'll be certain to try again soon.

    For perspective, I STILL haven't gotten this thing installed in my truck with the rest of my carpc.

    CarPC Progress ~= 97%. Everything is installed, and operational. Still need to tweak and tune, and do some "finish" fabrication.

    well Mike (Malcom2073) hooked me up with an led swap from the factory blue to red. I did not have to dye or sand the blue ring to come up with this result...

    That looks really good. I wouldn't mind changing the color on mine. Can you pass along any tips or part numbers?

    Thanks

    you'll need at least 6 smd 463 leds.. should probably be rectangular shaped. I would SINCERELY recommend getting at least 10 though.. they are extremely small and easily get lost. Only other things you need are a high power soldering iron, a thin tip, and a very steady hand.

    i dont know the diameter unfortunately. In my case the metal base has been removed and the space navigator sits in a hole with hot glue underneath

    That was one of the more difficult things I've had to solder, so definitely get at least 10. Just the slightest bit of static electricity is enough to make them go fly across the table. (Or in my case, the hood of a car)

    Without the metal part of the space needed (the hole) is less?

    yes.. the base is nothing more than a weighted bottom. Removing it makes the diameter and height smaller.
