Here is my current set up.
Nexus 7 (In dash)
Center console mounted volume dial with push to mute (Tablet>dial>amp)
(Not shown in the screencap is that the media widget is also in the Navbar and accessed via a softkey in the navbar)
The console dial was initially a USB 5 button mouse with key remapping but required the amp gain be cranked up which caused issues.
Now for full control you need the following;
(Some of these things can be eliminated with voice controls)
- Media Control (Previous, Play/Pause, Next, Playlist, etc.)
- Directional controls (Up, Down, Left, Right)
- Action Controls (Select, Home, Back, Recent, Menu)
- Phone Control (Answer, Hangup, Dialpad)
- SMS Control (Full KB or voice to text using a noise canceling mic)
If you skip voice control and you don't count the dialpad or KB, you need 15 buttons or adaptive input based on what app is running but still need at least 5-6 buttons. I am not sure how involved implementation of adaptive input would be as I gave up after days of trying to get it just right.
With the Satechi BT MediaRemote, you can cover most of this by key remapping but have to remember what keys are what. The advantage of proper key remapping is that it removes the need for additional apps to get it to work.
Seeing that I'm not sure how complete of a setup you are trying to get, it's hard to offer anymore advice.
