    Can we get a forum devoted to input devices?

    Hey folks, can we, and how can we, get a forum devoted to input devices... I mean, these are as much an issue as GPS.. I think it would be great to have a forum where we can stay focused on the various input devices that integrate well with cars. Who wants a $800 computer system, which is a pain to actually use?

    Im thinking we could really focus on all input devices,
    (like, for example
    - Voice recognition
    - Mini keypads
    - on wheel and on dash mini usb input devices
    - programmable keypads.
    - Infra Red
    - Touchscreens (that might go in lcd too)

    sounds good to me..

    An easier way to find keyboard hacks, IR, touchscreen etc..

    It would be very helpful, and I think it has a logical, and important place.

    Zip-Lock is the man, and it seems that he is already considering it

    Great! One of the reasons I think it would be great to have a input device forum, is I see no simple answer to my input device problem....

    Not on any way to downplay the complication of lcds / gps/ mobo / psu. But on those items I kind of atleast know where I should start (what I can afford , and were I should go to:
    clip-on-5.6"/McNally serial GPS&copilot/standard-mobo/Opus --->
    7" fold out/McNally serial GPS&copilot/ITX/Opus

    The only difference between our most basic computer based gps/mp3/etc systems and the most expensive professional standalone systems, is that our user interface is not designed for car use.

    I have have been looking hard for a good off-the-shelf input devices, something that really lends itself to input from a car, but have not found anything.
