    Handheld Joystick

    I have that handheld Boss joystick and it really SUCKS!

    Cant mount it anywere on my 2003 dodge truck. I have wrapped it in Velcrow and attached it directly to the left of the radio. It still wobbles back & forth making precise plow movements totally impossible. A Novice user would crash the plow into something for sure.

    With my left hand on the steering wheel and my right hand on the shift I wounder if boss thinks people come with three hands?

    Heres is a HINT IF BOSS READS this website.

    Get rid of the stupid handle and make the Joystick a Square Flat box with six or eight mounting holes for screws. Make the back able to epoxy onto a dashboard.

    and MAKE THE BUTTONS BIGGER! Amazingly enough people wear Gloves when its ZERO degrees outside ! and your finngers dont move well when Frozen!

    Speaking of that. How about adding a 110VAC Hydraulic heater that you can plug in just like the truck block heater. and a 12 VDC Hyd heater to keep the fluid moving in sub-zero temps.

    Oh and a REAL Down Pressure would be nice.
