Notes: 

  • There are two Nav controls—one at each side of the top. Each has three actions: Up, Down, and Press. On some models, a Nav control is a wheel which can be both rolled and pressed. On others, it's an up/down rocker along with a separate pressable button.

  • The Selector keys are at either end of the front edge. On older models, they're known as GDF (General Display Function) keys.

  • The Advance keys are just inside the rockers and outside the shift keys.
