    Amen brother - good problem to have. I’m very pressured to push production through while concocting new stuff...

    Keep up the great work and let me know when you come up for air; I’ve got some ideas from research I’ve been doing...I think we can accomplish a hardwired solution.

    I have a digital roadbook setup now working on my 1190R

    Thanks for the switches Chris. I'm having a great time learning roadbook navigation and planning tracks.

    The enclosures have changed and are now printed. You can still see the indicator lights through the lid. You can seal with silicone and I am working on printing a gasket for them as well. There is better strain relief where the cables exit as well.

    Have you thought about printing cases for the iPads and iPhones? Or are the life proof cases more economically feasible ?

    @1litre It just wouldn't be cost effective at all, not to mention I just don't have the time and resources. It works for the board enclosures because there are certain things I wanted that weren't available in a similar size box, like 4 screws, thicker walls, translucent top, etc. The small runs that I do make it work for me. It took about 10 hours to print those 4 boxes with good results. What you don't see is the 80 other hours of printing just to get to this point. There is learning the new tool (printer) and software to design what my mind wants. I have a cad background but the 3D stuff is just different enough that my normal process on how to 'draw' something doesn't mesh completely with the modeling side.

    This may have been answered however I'll ask anyway. The volume buttons on a iPhone adjust the odo, does the scroll of the roadbook replicate the track up and down? If so when not using the rallynav software then it could function to play music with the option of volume and track functions. Have I got this wrong?

    The commands are exactly as you state. if the app isn't running you will see the volume icon popup and adjust as you hit the buttons. If you have the music app running it changes tracks.

    Just a heads up that if you are on the fence about a set of buttons the price will be going up very soon due to costs on some parts increasing. I am not sure yet how much they will increase but it will be at least $10 and likely more. Just finishing 4 sets that will be available at the current price. This is strictly on a first come first served basis. When these are gone the price will go up. They will be ready by the end of the weekend (4/8) and able to ship out next week. Three set will be with both scroll buttons facing the rider and one with opposed scroll buttons. All buttons are red and black.

    Last weekend, I used these buttons in a race, for the first time. I ended up getting a great result. Coincidence? I think not. Get some.

    I'm not a paid spokesperson.....

    All stock is gone for the time being. I will let you know when more are ready. If you are willing to wait you can PM with your request to make sure it gets into the next batch.

    I'm glad this is working out for you. They are great devices! Thanx again.

    Your switches look really nice!!! Any plans on making them usable also with normal RB/Tripmaster?

    @manuellucchese ,

    I have done a few of those, two personal sets and some for close friends but haven't had time lately to do more with that and I don't think I want to go down that road yet. I have had a few people ask for them but not enough to make it worth the time/trouble/parts yet. One issue is that you would have to have a multiple relay setup to keep the double/stuck button push from motor locking your roadbook holder. Aurora Rally makes a relay setup that I have used for the last 2 years when not running digital and they also do buttons with the same bar mounts that I am using.

    Hope your ankle heals quickly and fully.

    @manuellucchese I just realized I totally read your question wrong. Were you just referring to the box alone and not a whole button setup that would work with everything? If that is the case then yes, I hope this summer to test a setup that would just use the existing F2R/MD toggle and ICO type buttons and their M8 connectors. I have to modify the design of the enclosure to have 3 cable openings and a bit of other things but I think it is doable. That is the next product I will likely offer.

    What about panel mounted M8 instead of cable? I have some that come with an o-ring for that purpose?
