Pedal commander

Has anyone had any experience with these devices?

It sounds like exactly what I need to make my C-HR the perfect ride...!

I had one in my BMW 330. Nice gadget, but doesn't bring all the mentioned benefits. Put the car into sports mode, and the throttle response will almost feel the same. This device does not affect the engine mappings or anything else for that matter, it just measures the amount of throttle applied and recalculates the amount of throttle to pass to the ECU. Nothing more, nothing less.
Doesn't seem to be the right thing to drive a hybrid... It will mess up the power regeneration.

Thanx Rob for the response! I don't own the hybrid but you don't feel that it would add any more acceleration from the start? What is this thing actually good for? Merely increasing eco mode?

Nothing more than a mindf*ck... It just makes the system think you depress the accelerator more than you actually do, so nothing else happens to the engine mappings, HP's or anything else. Try to find something like "sprintbooster" on the big web, that might explain something.
Full throttle cannot be exceeded, so if you put the pedal to the metal in sports mode there won't be any difference with or without the module. If you look at the installation you will see the module is chained between the fly by wire pedal sensor and wiring harness to the ECU. That way it can and will transmit the recalculated values.
Why i know this all? Up until a few years ago i wrote my own engine mappings for my SAAB 9-5 Aere HOT, so i do know what it takes to gain HP's and torque...
Don't waste your money on that; IMHO it's just a gadget for the less gifted.
