Question Trailer Brake Control Module ?????

Not at all familiar with trailering or control modules and need to get some input. Im going to be using a 17 foot tandem axle landscape trailer with electric brakes to haul my shit from here to Florida when I move next month. The load wont be too heavy as I sold most of my big shit. Im going to be towing it with a Trailblazer SS.

Now, which type of control module should I buy? I basically see 2 types. Interia based and time based.

I found a site where I can order both type for what seems to be decent prices and they include the direct plug connection for my truck..

I just dont know which way to go, or much about the brands..

Any help and input is very appreciated.. I need to get this thing set up so I can do some practice driving before we leave...

Thanks!!

The Prodigy is supposed to be the best out there. I've had mine for a year and run it without any problems...very happy.
