Overview

This value is specific to the Apple TV Remote (object.MFiProfile is "microGamepad").

Game controllers that implement the "microGamepad" profile usually implement the D-pad in hardware as a trackpad. The default value for this property is false which means that the location where the user first touches the trackpad is assumed to be the neutral value (0.0,0.0). All subsequent values are calculated relative to this position until the user lifts their finger. The next time the user's finger touches the trackpad, a new origin is chosen.

If this property is set to true, all values are calculated relative to the physical center of the touchpad.
