Aaron, Yes they are directly in front of the vertical X axis, centered on it. Mine are about 5/8" wide.

Default Winter 2019 Upgrade

My Lavorsi LED trim indicator broke late summer. So instead of $850 replacement cost (with not warranty or help from Lavorsi for a faulty product,.. again), I reached out to my go to guy, Ron Muller at Electronics Unlimited, to add a 12" Garmin screen. I think I am pretty much done with the 28!??? Well, maybe.

Default Paddle Trim

Thanks, With the Trim Sync addition, the right paddle switches are set to operate both engines, sync'ed equally, up and down with touches on the paddles up or down. The left are pre-set to position down about 4* (high speed turn angle as well) and a optimal high speed trim angle (up position) with both engines sync'ed. Really no need to even look at the trim indicators at all. Really makes the driving experience much more fun and safe, IMO.

Tamoba,
Went to the Miami boat show today and saw those paddle shifters and was quite confused until I read more and saw that they were for controlling trim and or tabs. Looks like a very cool addition! How do you like the screens versus the gauges?

Rossman, As you probably deduced, the paddles are nothing more that momentary switches that cam be used control trim functions or any other momentary switch function such as a electric horn or trim tabs as examples. I really like the screens because I can configure each one differently based upon what my needs or desires are at the time, i.e., dialing in set-up changes or navigating a unfamiliar body of water. With the MDC Trim Sync Race Edition, The need to closely monitor the trim positions essentially goes away - I can concentrate on driving and navigating more.
