What do people say about this cruise control and how does it compare?
I have installed this unit and can say definitively that the MDC unit install is easy. The MDC offers cruise control, with a settable governor, and optional theft deterrent system, and optional sprint booster functionality...Mr. Woodward
I installed mine couple of days ago and it's great. I agree with .... on the MDC unit and you don't have to run the cable all the way to the back of the car..... Mr. Wong
"I tested it out today only on local roads, but it works wonderfully! ..." Roger Miller (NC)
Parts look factory (because they are), these are used by smart in the roadsters in Europe. I suggest the remote LED kit if you want to easily program some of the features...
Smart Madness responds quickly and gets answers if you have them.... Mr. Barnes
"...1. Everything is plug and play... even the optional led. No splicing of wires or soldering required. Very nice.
2. Instructions were very clear and easy to follow. It took me a total of an hour and a half to do it all including the led install.
3. I highly recommend the led. It makes setting the level of speed boost and the defaults for how the cruise works extremely easy. If you don't have it, you have to leave the control box that is in the middle by the floor between the driver and passenger exposed so you can see the led on that box to tell what is set.
4. The cruise control works great. It matches the existing controls nicely. I love how the led flashes green to tell you it is ready to set and then turns solid green when it is actually keeping your speed.
5. The smartmadness people (yea Rachel) were very helpful and alway eager to answer any questions.
Note on the install: You do remove the speedo up top, the steering wheel plastic behind the wheel, gas pedal and carpet down below. If you are not a flexible person or a very large person I could see someone having issues installing this. A tip when installing... before hooking up the control box to the break pedal, I suggest hooking up the speedo, led and cruise control wires first... it just makes it an easier process. I did this in my garage in Texas yesterday and I did work up a sweat. But hey... if a chick like me can do it, anyone can do it! " Satxbiker (on SCOA) Location: San Antonio, TX
"....I really like the MDC cruise control from Smartmadness, ...." IBKING (on SCOA) Orange County, CA
"... just finished installing an MDC unit from Smart Madness. The installation is very easy - just read all the directions and ask for help if something confuses you. The beauty of this cruise control is that you can remove it as quickly as you installed it -- no futzing around with tiny connector pins.
Operation is very simple and easy. I certainly recommend this unit, especially with Smart Madness there to support you.... " Jim Dantin Prospect, KY
Subject: cruise control w/speed booster
Message: I just had to email you and let you know how thrilled I was after installing the cruise control. It works flawlessly. All in all, it took me about 2 hours to install the unit and if I was to do another install, I could probably cut the time in half. The instructions were clear and straight forward. Thanks again, Ray Stine
"I\'ve had my MDC Cruise Control for some time, now, and I just thought I\'d let you know that I am very pleased with it." Bill F. Kansas city
