Apex classic display compared to new display

Does anyone know if the new apex display units are the same size as the old black classic displays? I have a custom holder built into the side of my stand for the classic display and I want to verify the new one will fit.

Unless I missed an announcement somewhere, there's only one display that Neptune makes. The new Apex units don't come with a display as they assume you'll use a tablet or your phone along with Fusion. I'm not certain you can use the old display with the new unit. It'll definitely fit since it still uses the Aquabus, but I'm not sure the new controller will recognize it.

Sorry I wasn't clear. The old Apex display were black the new ones ar grey in color. I was wondering if they were the same physical size. Neptune just responded to me that they are identical, just different colors.

Yep, just different colored plastic and back-light LEDs. Otherwise they are the same and both versions work with both the new and classic systems. I have both the old and new versions working on a new system.
