B&G triton T41 vs Triton2

Anybody swapped over?
Any better functionality apart from AIS page & a bit brighter?
One of my T41's crapped it and was offered a replacement under B&G's
5yr replacement but dunno about having a mixture of both.
Apparently they play happily together.
Footprint is different.

Re: B&G triton T41 vs Triton2

cant imagine there being a problem.

Not crazy about the significantly deep housing of the new version. The triton 1 display works well on my boat, the 2 would be a problem on my boat due to the depth.

I hate this. I'd gladly upgrade various gauges if it weren't for the constant changes to the size AND shape of the holes necessary for them.

That and sometimes the surface flange/lip extends farther than expected. Be sure there's enough adjacent space to accommodate the gauge AND the cover than snaps onto it (and that your fingers can get to the pry points to remove it).

My one complaint about the Triton2 is it's kinda fiddly switching to night mode. You have to use it at whatever brightness it has currently, poke through a mode or two and then select Night mode. Reverse is true getting back to daytime mode. Wish there was a press-and-hold shortcut or something. It's annoying to switch helm stations at night (powerboat lower/flybridge) only to lose night vision because I have to wander through the menus. Which would be less of an issue if I had Triton2 at both stations as they'll apparently network the change. But I've still got some old H1000 down below.

These points are right on...
