Nav Select Encoder Button

I have just bought a 2006 Commander Limited with Nav. I can see all the menus and the map works, but I can't move around in the menus. I read in the manual that you do this with the select encoder button/joy stick. If I push it in it seems to click, so I don't know if I am not doing something right or what the problem is. Could someone help me please.

Can you move around in the map? The joysticks are known for having problems. I just bought one on ebay for $12 to replace mine with.

Move it up and down and side to side like a joystick. But be careful and don't do it to hard or it will break.

I can move around on the map. The joystick has to be desoldered and the new one soldered in. Probably best to have someone who works on circuit boards, etc. replace it.

What company did you buy your joy stick from? I can't find any on ebay. I can only find companies that upgrade or repair joy sticks and you have to send them your circut board.

This is a place I found that sells the 4 way one, but when I did the search (above link) for the 8 way one (which is correct for our units) it says they don't have any in stock, but expect it on 12/11/10. I don't know how accurate that date is, but if you can't wait, you can get the 4 way one and go with that.
