BlueFin have you got a price from Livorsi for this unit?

I was thinking about using/making a wireless system.

The wireless buttons are not so easy to find/make but the 2 channel 12v recievers are only £40-£60 so I am going to have a go at making a wirelss trim control system.

I know it's around and read quite favorable things, reviews are OK but I'd love to hear some real life feedback.
I dont see it on the web site or online catalog and I have no idea as to the cost but suspect something in between a kidney and testicle.
The Buttons are not wireless they run to the Tx which is in the Ctr hub.

My buddy has it and loves it but says there is a very slight delay (half second or less). really clean install too. If you decide not to make your own or if you just want to price it, call fred at trick marine ( www.trickmarine.net ). They sell livorsi products and have been KILLING everyone else with their pricing. I just bought a full set of gauges from them last week.

Not to be disrespectful to boatmad, but you will need to tell him you want the screamandfly discount to get the pricing. These are prices considerably less than on the web site.

We use the indicator style trim switches, no delay and simple (and a lot cheaper)

So use the buttons with an indicator style system without the switch just like in Cars.

the term "Slight Delay" is putting me off this idea.

Thanks Tony. In that case I'll run the twin storky pro trim but in parallel so it's either or and put the lifter on left foot operation.

Wheel is best I agree, Not had a problem with the previous hydraulic steering but a lot of people are telling me the Capilano/Latham system Ratches/idles if it's happens over a couple of hours thats fine but if it's and hour is not going to work

here is what I did to mine yesterday. I initially had a single trim switch mounted vertically on the wheel. I traced the outline of the switch placed horizontally on both sides of the wheel. Then used a dremel to rout out the plastic/rubber from the steering wheel so I could have a flush fit. Drilled a couple holes through the wheel for the wires and connected them together on the back side.
