Using TrackIR with SmartNav 4

Post by scottl523 » Wed May 02, 2012 12:25 pm

I want to use the TrackIR software with the Smartnav 4EG camera but can't get it to work or does it? After I close my Smartnav software I start the TrackIR software but I can't get the mouse to move is there some setup or configuration I'm not doing?

Hello -

TrackIR software will work with SmartNav cameras, however when TrackIR software is running, the SmartNav will no longer function as a mouse.

I'm a Quadriplegic I use the SmartNav 4 with a sip & puff attachment I have no movement below my shoulders I have ok head movement side to side and up and down. Is the TrackIR something you would recommend for gaming that I could use or not?

It depends on what you're trying to do with it. If you want to use your head to control view in game, then definately! If you need your head to control the mouse, then it's probably not a good solution as there's no way of differentiating between the two.
