Anything better than the Jandy PDA to control pool?

Postby limitup » Sun 12 Apr, 2009 15:02

We had our pool built about 2 years ago, and went with the Jandy PDA to control everything. To make a long story short, I hate this thing with a passion. It's slow as molasses and drives me crazy every time I use it.

I did a little research and supposedly there is a newer version that is a little faster, but there is no firmware upgrade. Jandy says you have to buy the new unit outright for 1000s of dollars.

Can anyone recommend a similar PDA type unit that doesn't make you want to slam it on the concrete every time you use it?

Anyone have a newer Jandy PDA that can share how fast or slow, or easy to use it is?

FYI mine says PDA 1.2, J-Box 1.29 and Handheld firmware 1.37 when it boots up (after 30 seconds!)

Your only other options to control your Jandy aqualink are the One Touch and All In One which are units that mount to your wall. They are definitely faster but you dont have the portability of the the PDA.
