Quote:When did you buy your Nexus? Did you have to update your software? I have an early one and I recently updated the software and now it seems to have gotten rid of the occasional pausing. I have my iPad mini directly off the serial port of my Argo Navis and works great. I may move my Nexus to my DM-6 setup and move the Argo Navis to the 20 inch Obsession. I use a 3 amp-hour AGM battery on the top of my DM-6 to keep my Argo Navis going in cold weather. If I did the Nexus, I would plug in my iPad mini and my Nexus to a 7 amp-hour AGM. Since the batteries are the DM-6 head I don't have to worry about cord wrap.
Quote:Before I bought my DM-4 several years ago I was looking a the Half-Hitch. What was your reason for replacing it with the DM-4?
