Iím finally getting around to this. Do you have a parts list for the buttons/switches?

i always use momentary pushbutton tact switches for button duplication.  8mm should be enough. sometimes i cap them other times i don't. wrapping wire to bridge connections.

Very nice mod! It solves one of the biggest complaints about the Nav. What did you use to affix the buttons onto the enclosure?

I did this mod 5 years ago, burried in the forum somewhere, but dropped it as the nav got unstable in hand with its smooth surface when using the stick. Also the button didn't feel nice after some time playing. My button was at the pinky though.

Nice Work!

Now that you've familiarized yourself with the process you should be able to perform similar modifications to just about any controller. Glad this was useful for you.

Those caps are nice, I made a 4 button scuf on PS3, and a one button on PS4 using those same switches, but never put caps on them and they hurt my fingers lol.

Didn't matter though I grinded out BO2 league play till my fingers had blisters
