Quadzilla commander buttons

Anyone else had a problem with the buttons being extremely hard to get to work on their commander?
I got mine in Aug. '06, used it really just for gauges because at the time they hadn't gotten it to where it would "talk" to a 6 pos. chip. Now they have a module to allow it to work a chip without the dial. But I can't hardly get the buttons to work so I can adjust it.

Call or email them about it. It sounds to me like a pretty common problem. I have only had mine for a few weeks, but I believe they are a POS. I will be removing mine tomorrow to send it back for a button problem and the coolant temp won't read accurately.

Despite the fact that I read about a lot of the same problems with the Commander, I let myself get talked into buying one. I wish I would have gone with the bulky LiveWire now! Of course if I would have listened to all the negatives, I would have never bought the 6.0 either.

Yeah, just call them and they will probably get you to send it back. It sucks, but that is the way it is. I am probably going to get a quad pod for my truck very soon. The commander is a great idea and has some very nice features...BUT, it also needs to work when you need it to work.

Yeah it does suck, espicially for a company like Quadzilla. I have talked with them numerous times about different things and they are always great to work with. I sure hope they can get the commander figured out because I think it can be one of the top 10 diesel performance products out there.

I will have a 4 gauge pod by the end of the year for sure. I just think they look cool. I have been pretty lucky with my commander, I have not had too much issue out of it.

yah... I just do'nt like the analog guages -- lots do. I wish the commander looked a little more stylish, but I think it is much better than analog guages

I would have bought a commander for mine, but they don't have the pillar pod for the 7.3.
