    HDS Touch upgrade or not.

    I noticed a bubble in the screen on my HDS-10 Gen 2 and called the warranty dept. It's covered but they ask if I would like to upgrade to a new model. They offered me the HDS-12 Touch Gen-2 for a $525.00 and $50.00 for the bracket. What would you do? It will only come with a 6 month warranty with option to buy 6 month blocks at $60.00. I'm thinking pretty hard on this.

    Depends on how long turn around would be for warranty repair. I would upgrade but that is me. I have the HDS 7 Gen 2 Touch.

    BTW, they have a new software update for those too that makes them even sweeter if you haven't already done the update.

    We have an HDS-12 touch flush mounted in the TTZ Skeeter FXi 21, it's pretty kick ass holmes, I'd go for it. Nobody ever said, man I wish this screen was 2 inches smaller.

    Truth. My Gen 1 HDS 7 is pretty dinky. I'd upgrade.

    The update allows you to add a photo in the background and adds more user friendly controls.

    No brainer for sure. I've used the HDS 12 touch on the new Skeeter and it is Badass. Seems like an awesome deal to me buddy.
