Bigfoot 5th wheel control upgrade kit

We just bought our first fifth wheel a 2010 Carriage Cameo F35sb3 😃. It has the first generation Bigfoot jack system. My question is what are the pros/cons to installing the system upgrade and getting the enhanced features, single sensor, etc... It appears to be easy to install and is approx $600.00

Assuming yours still has the original 5th wheel control panel with no blue led(?) readout, the upgrade control panel is much more user friendly, especially when controlling the the jacks manually. Also I use the wireless key fob controller almost every time I hook up or unhook the rig, raising or lowering the front of the fiver as needed from the drivers seat in the pickup.
The con is the 600 bux.

the generation BigFoot system you have is one of the most dependable systems out there .... we upgraded and have experienced some issues as they have worked through some bugs .... given the choice again, I don't know that I'd upgrade
