Have been looking into upgrading my off road light set up and was wondering if anyone had experience installing and using the sPOD touchscreen?

Spud has manual toggle for less and as far as I am aware cali raised also has one, but currently cannot be found on there site x install is pretty straight forward not to complicated

I would say go with the switch pro 9100. I can use my phone or iPad as a touch screen. This way you don’t just have a screen chilling on your dash.....just another reason for someone to break in and steal something IMO

Honestly the touchscreen is kinda cool, but is it practical for the additional 300-400$ price tag? The pros to the Spod is that it utilizes a relay box that you can screw on connections instead of having to splice wires together, I think it is convenient, but again you can bypass that and get a nice bluesea relay box and switch pros for cheaper than the Spod system.

I really enjoy my switch pros because of its functionality and ease of use, having everything being programmable by bluetooth is awesome, and its very simple to install. IMO because of these reasons I personally like it more than the Spod
