I had the Takonsha Voyager with a pop-up. I learned a lot using it, and it was very good. But it wasn't convenient to use. I stepped up to the p2 for my Swift. I read about it and the p3, and the p3 seemed to have a lot of unnecessary features for my application, while the p2 seemed perfect. Plus, I liked the price. You got a good deal yourself, and I think it will work great for you.

After everything i ream about the Prodigy P2 it just seemed like a good choice especially when i found it for so cheap. It should be here tomorrow and looking at the directions seems real easy to install.

The P2 is a great controller.

There is virtaully no installation required if you purchased the cable harness for the P2 that matches your vehicle. When I purchased my P2 I also bought the cable for ~$12 instead of messing with the GM cable that came with my tahoe. It basically plugged into the sockect under the dash and the P2, then I mounted the P2 with double sided tape.

I think I paid $105 including shipping for my P3 when I bought for our Suburban. Bought it through ebay it was new w/ warranty. Looks like there are several of them there now for $110 - $120 w/ free shipping.

I have both a P2 & a P3. From a usability standpoint they work the same, I can't tell any difference while towing. From a setup standpoint, I really like the P3. It was much nicer to configure and it has some nice diagnostic tools built into it.

I've had my P2 since summer of 2007 and my P3 since Feb. 2009.

I got the P2 set up last night, very easy to install. I mounted it were the ashtray is, very clean looking. Almost ready to town the trailer home Saturday morning. I got my tow mirrors in today and should install them tomorrow night, see how well that goes. I gotta take the door panel off which should be interesting.

I had to take my door panels off to install new speakers. I googled for instructions as I had never done it before and I`m glad I did as there were a few little tricks to getting them off properly which made it an easy process with that knowledge. Of course mine is a 2004 with different panels.
