Hello everyone I purchased a Prodigy Controller a couple of days ago to replace a Mark 2 However when I read the destructions it warned about mounting or activating RF generating items (cell phones,two way radios )closer then 300mm. from the unit. It is a 80 ser. Cruiser man. which seems to have only one suitable location under the dash 120mm under the UHF. Has anyone come across this problem and if so what can be done to fix this? Your help will be much appreciated. Thanks P^J

Hi Woo, My controler is less than 80mm from the UHF and so far so good, I plug the mobile in about 200mm away . have done around 15k with this config. Put it where it fits with tape and give it a go, but feel for probs, use the 2 way and mobile, have a safe drive around your home area not to quick, and if happy put the screws in. Graham

Pj can you give me the dimensions of the controller - I have to mount mine the same and I'm worried about hitting my shin on it. I have an earlier version which is quite bulky, and so am considering buying the new models ( if they are smaller ) Cracker

Hello Cracker, This unit is much smaller then their earlier version , it measures 135mm long / 100mm wide / 55mm high (this includes the pocket mounting or bracket ) and it cost $275 . P^J

Just a little tip when using the Prodigy. I have mine set on boost B1 and 6.3amps and I have found that when travelling on slippery roads or down very steep hills, everything is more stable if B2 is selected, and then return it to B1 when conditions improve. Since fitting the Prodigy we have towed over 50,000km without any problems. Brian
