Thanks for all the responses. I decided on the Prodigy P3. Watched a youtube video; mount the bracket and hook up to four wires already under the dash. The dealer said he would install it for no additional charge.

You'll be happy with your P3.

I love mine, and when I'm not towing, I use it to monitor my electrical system's voltage.

Had a P3 for years and loved it. Only issue I ever had was it would lockup once in awhile when it wasn't used for a longtime (a month or so). So I would just unplug it, wait 10 sec and plug it back in and all was fine.

I currently have a Redline brake controller that is a solid state time-delay type. It's pretty basic with the thumbwheel and emergency brake slide switch. It works...but needs frequent adjustment as driving conditions change. I would like to see about moving up to a higher-end controller that has a display and uses an accelerometer. I have been told by some to go with a Prodigy and others have said Hayes. Any input? Should I just splurge on a Prodigy P3 and be done with it?

I agree with Raceday the only way to go, But raceway what are all those switches for? Do you have after burners installed or something? on the left of your dash. Just curious.
