Which one is Best,,,ScanGauge II or Edge CTS Monitor

I am looking at adding gauges to my truck. Which one is better, the ScanGauge II or the Edge CTS Monitor? What I am looking for is ease of install,, plug and play. By looking at the pictures of each product it looks like the Edge has a bigger screen to read. Is it hard to see the read out on the ScanGauge?

I have the ScanGauge2. Best money I ever spent. Reads a whole host of critical data for the 6.0 Powerstroke. You do have to program in the X-gauge coding numbers before you can read them though, but once coded in, they are always there to scroll through and read. For the price the SG2 is a steal for what it can do. The Edge monitor is nice also, but much more expensive. Go here,

http://www.scangauge.com/support/x-g...cific-xgauges/

and scroll down to the ford 6.0L diesel, and you can see and compare these capabilities against the Edge. These X-gauge features are additional readings ontop of the 10 or so that come pre-programmed in already. Like I said, you can scroll through all of these once they are programmed into the device.

For me it would be the Edge Insight CTS a great tool, get the expandable probe so if you want to add more to it down the line you can plus you can read 8 things at one time.

the blendmount mounts the scangauge above the rear view mirror. go to blendmount.com to see. nice kit makes it look like a factory job. put the scangauge out of the way and it is easy to read.

I too am curious as to which monitoring system to get I am thinking the insight but am able to find all its features and go by what has been mentioned in here and other posts, stuff like the insight has an engine/turbo brake and others stuff, or is this just a dressed up gizmo, when we got an edge for my dads in '08 once we opened the box there where many options unavailable

I dont think the insight is a dressed up gizmo at all. Depending on your year you may not be able to use/gauge every feature with just a plug n play option. Edge does offer additional sensors/senders/cables to monitor fuel pressure and EGTs. wich is the case with any system you use when it comes to the 6.0l. It really depends how much your willing to spend and if the flashy, colored gauges are important to you. Last note here, dont forget about the original edge insight. It offers pretty much all the same features just with a smaller screen and digital readings. It does a fantastic job just w/o the flashy gauges....you can find them used on ebay relatively cheap and then buy the EGT probe and cable and save a ton...really depends on the owner and what they want. All the mentioned systems monitor very well.
