When we used the Gyration Air Mouse Go Plus with MotionSense on the desk as a standard mouse, there were no glitches, but we did not expect any. The middle navigation button was a little tricky to get used to, but we got there in the end. The Mouse is also easy to use in the air, and did not take much getting used to, just make certain that you use quick flicks of the wrist, as the mouse responds much better then. You can use the device up to 30 feet away.
