    It
    It gives you more height to level out, especially when on a slope.

    I doubt anybody on the forum has had it done. I didn't much fancy it when they showed me it as I was happy with what I've got so didn't ask the price, looks pretty though.
    Give SAP a ring.

    You dont need the touch screen, just the app and your phone and the WiFi box.
    Here is an install from a German forum.
    Hi

    everyone , the weather is not so good this weekend that I would drive out the Mobi but I was also curious and then tried the new WiFi box with the car in the carport. Here is the report:

    1. Installation:
    The connection of the box was very easy. [​IMG]As expected, I just had to change that.

    So I installed the "normal" control panel in my flair. It is behind a flap in the entrance area, so that you do not normally see it but still get well: The panel can be easily removed and then remove the cable that comes from the control unit:

    Then the cable is plugged into the wifi box and the box and the panel are connected with the supplied cable. Already the installation is finished. Total took only 2 minutes. Of course, for the aesthetic design, the cable still has to be hidden and the box screwed on, but that's not a big topic anymore. 2. Usage: The system funzt! The operation is 100% intuitive. The device works right away (no, not quite true, I had to reset the box once briefly, so that the code is activated, ie once in accordance with the manual 5 sec. Press the button and it was good). How the app works:

    [​IMG]


    First, the smartphone (goes with iPod or iPad, Android tablet, I have not tried) connected to the box and entered the password. The box is recognized as a hotspot and can then be selected. This is the start screen. You can choose between manual or automatic leveling. Furthermore, there is a button for the settings in the top right corner: If you select the automatic mode, a screen appears. which displays the 4 jacks and a dragonfly in the middle. At the bottom of the screen are the buttons "Home Screen", "Retract Columns", "Automatic Leveling" and "Tank Drainage Position".

    If you then select the automatic leveling, the system starts and the respective active columns are highlighted in yellow. When finished, the system will turn all the supports red again and the bubble will show the horizontal position of the vehicle: during leveling, the process can be stopped at any time (see middle picture).
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]



    In manual mode you can extend the supports in pairs. The supports always ride as long as the respective button is pressed. Unfortunately, I forgot to try out whether this is like the control panel or the FB with the comfort function that the system automatically stops when the horizontal leveling is reached. However, I suspect that the controller is designed for this because the mW is programmed through the controller rather than the keypad. Finally, there is a settings menu in which the password can be changed and you can calibrate the individual leveling positions. You can also set your preferred language. Available are German, English, French, Italian, Dutch and Swedish.

    So, that was it in all "brevity".

    A perhaps important clue yet. I also tried if the system has a good range. From 20 meters away, I could still appeal to the box perfectly. Next I have not tried it but for practice that is certainly sufficient.

    All in all, really great the part. I am totally satisfied and can recommend the retrofitting. [​IMG]

    Because E&P know what they are doing, whereas I don't think GlideRite had a clue.
    Not only can you accommodate greater slopes if the front rams are placed behind the front wheels but they will share the load better with the rear rams. In the example shown, the front rams will have have very little weight to lift, leaving the rear ones to do all the work.

    How much is the wifi box and is it easy to self-fit?

    Wire the handbrake switch to a switch that is semi concealed on the dash instead of the handbrake. Wire buzzer to switch and ign live so if switch is on (handbrake on) and ignition is turned on... buzzer sounds. Fixes all problems.
