Has anyone had experience with the Redarc In-dash Brake Controller that Toyota dealers fit to the 200 series?
Any comments for or against would be appreciated.

My only experience is with the Prodigy.

Hi Noel,
I am running the "prodigy" and have had no problems. However my mate has the red arc in his 200 series . It has been in for three years, also with no problems at all. I guess the big advantage of the red arc is the fact that there is no space taken up inside the cabin. My prodigy is down on the left hand side of the steering, and poses no real problems. BUT, I think if I had to go down the controller road again. I would get the red arc fitted.
???? Does this enquiry give me the impression that the Silverado has gone by the wayside????
Cheers

Hi Noel,
I run the Redarc and have had no problems 4yrs now, easy to use and adjust when you need that extra van breaking on steep hills.

Thanks Spydor and Bob.

You my be correct Spydor, it is a work in progress!
I do have a Prodigy in the Chev I may transfer over but the in dash out of the way is appealing.

Have to wait & see

cheers
