I-Command vs analog..?

I just bought an E-tec 75! Delivered in ~ a week.

 

With the re-power promotion I heard from the dealer I'd have a choice of the I-Command 'system' or analog. Why would anyone want the analog?!?

 

I'm kind of familiar with the I-Command so it seems a no brainer. Right?

Some folks prefer a traditional dashboard and the older and smaller E-TECs can't use I-Command gauges.

Re: I-Command vs analog..?

Looking at buying an ETEC 150 and I am trying to decide on which controls to buy.  the dealer tells me to buy the "system check" gauges.  I-Command sounds interesting.  What is the extra cost for the I-command.  Is it worth it or should I save the money now and wait for the future to catch up?

You may want to double check with  your dealer. The special promotion that is going on now gives you free System Check gauges or free ICON Pro gauges, not I-Command digital gauges.

 

For more information on the ICON Pro gauges, refer to the E-NATION article about them.
