    My father is retired and has some neuropathy that limits the amount of feeling he has in his feet. He really enjoys AC, and but has mentioned that he is struggling to know where his brakes actually are. He has asked me if their is a brake app thats very large that he can watch in his peripheral vision, in hopes that he might bet a better idea of how much he is on the brakes. I know their are several brake apps around, but nothing on the large side. By large I mean, a horizontal bar 1/2 inch high, and 8 inches wide. Anyone know of anything like this?

    you can take default pedal app and make it bigger .. you can scale apps by clicking on those arrows in corner ... not sure what is max size but give it a try if you didn`t know about it

    That would probably be a 30 min project to write an app for if none exists, just need to be a bit more specific about what you want (like just a grey bar that turns red?)

    ya, a grey horizontal bar, about 1/2 tall by 8 inchs wide, turns red by sliding to the right. kinda like the stock pedal app but on its side, and only for the brake

    If you do not mind my imput.
    I have the same problem, the app will be most useful for me too,

    Just one other point which may help your dad ........

    I woulld and still do at times drive with my foot on the brake, ( not a good thing).
    I would also lose my reference for were my brake foot is while driving and not know
    where my feet are , especially the brake. ( how sad is that :sleep: ).

    So i remembered from my karting days that you can buy foot cups
    ( very cheap to buy ) "eBay"
    they are designed to go infront of the brake and accelerator they lock your feet in
    place and you can also position them far enough from the brake pedal so you
    will not accidentally press the brake pedal. This has helped me a lot.

    Thats it, hope it helps.:)
