The Prodigy uses a solid state electronic accelerometer (no more pendulum). It also has three boost settings that add braking effort as soon as the brake light circuit is energized by you putting your foot on the brake, and these also work in reverse and while stopped.
Bottom line...it works better with no need for you take any attention away from the road or the traffic.
I don't know much about the tekonsha brake controllers as I last used one many years ago, but I recently purchased an Escort Sensor DP controller and have only used it a few times.
Has anyone had any experience with this one, as I am having some problems adjusting the sensitivity to get a smooth stop while sending sufficient power to the trailer brakes so the truck does not carry the load. Seems if I increase the power(or voltage) I get too much "kick-back" from the trailer as I reach a full stop. Any ideas or comments would be greatly appreciated.
Just recently got rid of the nearly new Voyger and put on a Jordan, Ultima 2020. Man what a difference. The only way to go in my opinion.

What's the difference in installing the Jordan vs. the Prodigy. I've got a Prodigy and it was extremely easy to install. Is the installation similar for the Jordan? Prodigy is not available for my truck so I'm looking for a new system.
