I see that my proposed use-case has already been considered:
Unfortunately, I cannot seem to get it to work. D-Pad seems to pan up,
down, left and right, and the gampad buttons appear to map to page up,
page down, go to the top of the page and go to the bottom of the page,
even when in handheld mode.
I'm using a recent joyride. I'd appreciate it if anyone could help me
determine what is going on.
