I see that there are no Windows 7 drivers for the NuLOOQ Navigator, and almost no support any more. I infer that the NuLOOQ has been pretty much a complete flop, and Logitech is devoring essentially no resources to supporting it.
Does anyone have any different information?

Yes they have. I have been on the phone with them, and pretty much the message was "you're screwed, now here, let us give you this worthless discount on an inferior product." Ok maybe not inferior, but DEFINITELY not a replacement for the NuLooq called the SpaceNavigator. I made the mistake of getting one of the SpaceNavigators, and it is a fine product (for doing 3D stuff), but is an epic fail as far as a replacement for the NuLooq goes.
I also asked them, nay begged them to offer a kit or something for the community to make use of these versatile devices, maybe by writing their own drivers/plugins... something. I was blocked at ever turn. I would love to see someone who knows figure something out for Windows, Mac and Linux users so that we don't have these useless hockey pucks sitting around.
I would like to again, call for Logitech to do the right thing and open up the source on the drivers and software for this thing or at least give us enough info to write our own.

You're hosed, my friend.
ChadAlan is right... I'm not sure how long ago the device was released... but it was okay with 10.5 OS X, as soon as I went to 10.6, everytime I start my computer up the device will not pan in CS3, will scroll in other programs... but cannot do application specific panning or zooming for Adobe programs.
If there's anyone that has any solution out there, I would love to hear it. This device, before the upgrade, had increased my workflow significantly...

Ouch. I just bought two on eBay but am running Windows 7 64-bit and Photoshop CS5.1
It looked like such a "modern" device and I thought it would have been quite helpful, but now I'll never know. . .

Odd thing...It actually works GREAT in Windows 7, and I'm using 64bit. It is application aware, and in Ps, it is super!
I have a G500 mouse, a G510 keyboard (I fried my G15 original).
So between the 3 I have all shortcuts in Photoshop I use taken care of.
On the NuLooq, I have the brush size and the hardness adjustable, dragging, and color picking. On the 18x3 keys for the KB G510, I wont bother listing, but on the G500 having the brush size on the L/R wheel tilt is super as well.
All this and not one game to play!!!!! and I still love them. I even use another G15(newer amber version on another system with the MX518.
Logitech!!!! I can give you one major advice....Start making the G keys on the KB with some unique tactile feel for each key so we know where our fingers are!!!

If you've gotten this to work with 7 and PS5.1, can you please share How? I am trying to get this to work for my daughter who is going to Uof O for Digital Arts, and I bought this for myself years ago when first released and was hoping she could use this to help her in her class. Thanks, Jeff

Try the WinXP driver. Once you plug the NuLooq in, it will not lightup until you install the software driver. Then it lights up. Also can configure to map to CS5 to have unique configs.
