Swag and PDR look like fighter pilots with their setups.

I don't know about folders/files or cut & paste. I'm good at following instructions but the instructions definitely have to fit my computer.
Installing the hardware is straight forward and I'm sure you can easily handle that task. The control box(es) connect to the chassis port and you connect your laptop or tablet to the USB port (you can use bluetooth or wifi but I believe those options could introduce a bit more complexity if everything doesn't "talk" as advertised).

Setting up the user interface file could be a bit more of a challenge but there are plenty of us on this forum that can assist in that step. I had one issue with my Surface Pro tablet, had to do with security and downloading a file and my IT savvy son was called on to rescue me, not sure I could have figured it out on my own and I have pretty good IT skills myself. But, I'm sure there are others who have had no issues with other hardware they have chosen.

All in all, not a difficult installation and worth the cost and effort.

We can actually provide a copy of our setup file with all the gauges established as shown. If you see a layout that you like, once it is sent to you, you can just copy the file to your SilverLeaf folder and "open" that file to use the gauge setup. You would have to make some setup changes within the setup for your engine, but that is simple.
