    Is that going to be the final mounting position of the keyboard? Because you will have a heck of a time turning the steering wheel when that cord wraps around the collumn. Many people use a IR remote on the wheel and a receiver on the dash.


    BTW Congrats on the new car.

    we'll see. i didnt even think about that but id rather leave some slack than mess with wireless/batteries.

    *and no, the cord you see is not going to be visible, it will be run by the column into the dash.

    have you thought about using the existing controls on the wheel?

    dont really care to. all it does is volume, etc which i have a knob for. and only 2 out of 8 buttons were stereo-only, so its not like i have a bunch of useless buttons on my wheel.


    now if there were a really easy can-bus to computer adapter or something, i might buy it, but i doubt that will *ever* happen

    thats no fun...

    you could always use the volume for previous/next track, or to open gps, practically anything.

    If they don't have a kit yet, they will soon.
