Custom positioning

I installed this on my 2014 Nissan Titan January 2015. I bought it primarily for the manual control that I put on the center console so it would be right next to my thigh. This way I don't have to lean forward and reach for it. I can comfortably leave my hand on it when I'm in heavy crazy traffic. It's been a life saver on several occasions. The red light that stays on even when the truck is turned off doesn't bother me at all. It's never run my battery down and I think it acts as a theft deterrent cause from the outside it looks like an activated alarm. The proportional braking is excellent too. Wonderful product!

Brake control excellence

Had this installed on my 2009 Ford F150. It replaced another brake controller that was under my steering wheel. It was very difficult to use and read braking strength. I had to take my eyes off the road to read it. It was even more distracting if I wanted to apply trailer brakes manually. The InSight controller is much safer because it has a readout on my windshield, a manual control beside my steering wheel, and the power box is far enough under my dash that I never have to worry about banging my knees on it. As a trailer brake control upgrade, this is great. I have been very pleased to have it!

Red Light Blues

Fairly easy install on a 2005 GMC sierra. Concerned about the red light on the controller staying on as this vehicle stays parked a lot and I fear the battery will discharge. Other than that no problems.

I installed this on a 2010 Silverado. Very easy to mount the components where you want them and route the wires. I would have given five stars except for the red light on the controller stays on constantly. I think it should be on only when a trailer is connected, like the red dot on the display.
