I'm using since 2009 your bridge with very big sadisfaction
As I got a bridge w/o display I would like to know if it's possible to upgrade the current bridge or I have to buy a new one.
Is possible to have a display in a different position respect to new display so isn't necessary a upgrade of existing wiring harness ?
If I undestood well different models of displays could be used now. Is it true?

Maybe you look on the pcb board and tell me if there is something written on it - like V3.5 ? Should be V3.5 Board, since we shipped that from 2006 on.

If you have them, you could just solder the Display on the board.
