Off to a good start! I've never bit the bullet and bought an Apex period. I've been holding out forever for something even better, and I think if I'm reading the writing on the wall correctly I believe ecotech is taking the first steps in the right direction for what I'm looking for with their Mobius app. I'm hoping they release an entire line of reef equipment all wirelessly controllable online through the Mobius app making the Apex obsolete. We'll see what happens. The Apex is certainly a great controller though. I'd say if your old Apex system is working fine, maybe wait a bit longer, save up and see what comes out on the market.
