    are there alternate ways to control map monkey/D3?

    it seems map monkey is very mouse oriented. since this is going to be in the car, I won't have a mouse/wouldn't want to use one in the car.

    Are there special commands or something I could map the keyboard to/remote control (using girder), or NaviVoice or something?

    thanks for any help!

    Touch screen, to have less chances for an accident

    no touchscreen. Remote control, keyboard, voice, gider, etc. are all my available options (unless I missed some)

    I'm also using Meedio as a front end if that makes any difference

    also, "talking" to the computer would be a lot safer then fumbling around with a touchscreen

    well.. talking is fun.. but it gets old fast .. I've found touch to be quite safe if done right.. just like chnaging tracks on a CD deck .. and yes I can adjust volume and tracks without looking.. once I know the spot to hit..

    are you against the TS? or just don't have funds to buy one?.. or bought a nonTS LCD?.. nothing beats a TS in my opinion..

    don't have the funds for a TS, and already have a few LCD's that are nonTS that inspired me to create a car pc in the first place
