    @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?

    Just where you mentioned modifying the design of the enclosure to have 3 cable openings, you could just panel mount the connectors in the same place to save having leads coming out of everywhere? Probably neither here nor there though...

    Now I see what you meant. That is actually a good idea as most with existing cables are run to a common spot anyway. Thanks for the suggestion. I think I have a few in a project box stashed somewhere...now to find it...

    This looks pretty useful, really like those buttons and control unit, very neat.

    As I can't afford the built kit at the moment I've hooked up a an adafruit board to my ipad, works well and I can scroll the roadbook or use the board to change the volume on spotify.

    If find when I pull the power from the board on USB and then power the board back on the ipad doesn't recognize the board's commands again
    The board is connected
    To get it working again I have to remove/forget the connection to the RallyBlitz Control and re pair it with the ipad. It works then.

    The ipad is an ipad mini 2 running IOS 11.3
    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    I have had the same issue on occasion and haven't been able to find a solution yet but still digging into it. It happens to me on one Ipad but not another, with the same board, same version of iOS, one is an older mini 1 and the other with issues is mini 2.
