Advice for drive testing

Hello everyone,
I'm emailing this list asking for advice.  I have a client who makes cell phone-based navigation systems, and they want to do some drive testing -- that is, testing where I'd be in the car with the participant observing them as they navigate.  Has anyone on this list done this before?  If so, please let me pick your brain for some advice.

One button mouse (was Menu bar on Macintosh)

The original SRI mouse (Engelbart, et al, mid-1960's) had one button.
By 1968, it had three buttons. Only the left button was used in
conjunction with pointing. The other two buttons were used to confirm
and cancel actions.

In 1974, at Xerox PARC, I implemented a prototype of the Gypsy text
editor that introduced drag-select and needed only one button. (The
final version of Gypsy, 1975, which I developed with Tim Mott, used
all three buttons because they were there.)

In 1981, Xerox shipped the Xerox Star with two buttons.

Apple's mouse first appeared on the Lisa.

Join us in 2 weeks at Interaction'09|vancouver: Registration is still open

It's getting exciting as we are getting ready for the final countdown to
the conference. I look forward to meet many of you in 2 weeks in

As we come down the stretch here are some final notes. WE STILL HAVE
ROOM for people to sign up for the conference and workshops. Airfare has
dropped significantly and the exchange rate from at least the US to
Canada is quite favorable. We are going to be about the same size as the
'08 conference so it will be an intimate experience where we can all
meet and interact with each other in great ways.

Hi All,

Can anyone direct me to some methods used or studies that

A Letter from the President of IxDA

Dear IxDA Members,

Thank you for your ongoing support on the IxD Discussion list in 2005
and in this quarter. You our members, have made this list one of the
best online resources for discussing issues concerning the evolving
practice of interaction design. Your interest and passion fueled our
decision in October 2005 to take the next logical step of beginning the
transformation from a simple mailing list to a full-fledged non-profit
professional organization.
