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

I know this is an old topic but would you be willing to do this work for a fee? I'd love a few extra useful buttons in better positions but don't own the tools necessary. If you would I'd gladly pay a reasonable amount for labor and shipping.

If only someone could manage to add a couple of extra buttons that can be mapped as new buttons, that would be the ideal solution for me :-)

Just got the XIM Apex for xmas and have been using the G502 + Nav, really started wanting something exactly like this. Anyone know if it's possible to do something like this to the trigger similar to the Battle Beaver Customs "smart triggers" ?
