There has been no discussion on this thread for a while, but I felt I had to add to the comments I made, above. I wanted to add that I finally found out why the labels associated with different movements of the cap were changing on me. It turns out that you can have different "profiles" defined in t...

Ngomes: Thanks for the video link from 3DConnexion's website showing the controller cap in use. Unfortunately, we still need to get straight on terminology. I agree with the descriptions you use in your post, above. But, the video disagrees with you and goes against my understanding of these terms t...

Suggestion

Since the registration process has you enter info into a web page, it's a simple matter to add some text to that web page:
1. Serial number location - on the USB cable
2. Serial number on the tag: labeled PID

Google Earth preferences

Since I suggested your doing a tutorial on the use of SN with GE, in particular GE's navigation preferences, I thought I'd point out that GE has a bug in its preferences/navigation window. In the Controller Settings section, there is a check box and two radio buttons. When you see radio buttons, you...

Pan vs. Zoom

I hate to respond to my own post, but... I just re-read your post, and you state that SN with GE does "2xPan, 1xZoom and Spin and Tilt". That tells me that Pan and Zoom are indeed two different things. That confuses me. Since the Zoom setting window in the 3D control panel shows the Pan Up/Pan Down ...

zoom in GE

Thanks for the information. I'll be playing with these settings some more. Let's talk about the zoom control. It's good that the settings are application specific. But, the only applilcation I currently have that the SN will work with is GE. And in GE, the zoom control does NOT match the setting in ...

me too

I also spent a lot of time looking for a serial number. I ended up entering "none" in the on-line registration form. Of course the SN was already hooked up to my PC and I didn't consider that the serial no. was on a sticker at the USB end. So, is there a way that I can get back to my registration re...

Roll control poor in GE

I'm getting used to my SN/PE, with Google Earth my only app. for it. All the controls appear to work as expected, with the exception of Roll. Roll doesn't roll as well as I'd expect. In my experimenting, I'm pretending to be an airplane flying along above the terrain. I expect that the Roll action w...
