If it does not trouble you, you’ll enjoy the control panel’s basic, simple design, full with a conventional 7.0-inch touchscreen infomercial screen (8.0 inches if you go with navigating). Originally we were afraid that the quantity as well as adjusting handles, placed in the reduced edges of the infomercial screen on the dashboard, would need a lengthy reach, however, both are quickly accessed from the pole positions.
