Best Torque App Screen to monitor 6.0 Vitals

Like the title says, what does your Torque app screen look like to monitor the vitals of your 6.0? I am not bulletproofed yet but want to be proactive and monitor everything

What I Monitor on my Torque App on 1 screen:
Oil Temp
Coolant Temp
Trans Temp
Intake Temp
Boost
FICM volts
Battery Volts
VGT
HPOP
Load
EBP

Oil and coolant temps should be within 15* of each other cruising on a flat highway. Mine usually hover around 185-190 warmed up which to me is healthy. Slightly higher when towing, but same 3-6* spread. Boost and VGT is there to make sure its all working properly. Hpop should be around 600 at idle, I think up close to 4K at full throttle. FICM volts @ 48 - 48.5 is healthy. Battery volts drop at startup, build up quick once running and at 13.5 - 14.1 cruising.

Here's a screen shot of mine after driving around town a bit. Added EBP and Engine Load recently.

What setup are you using. I was and still are currently using the Scangauge 2, but I have an iPhone 4S and a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. I think all I need is the "app", but what device are you using to communicate with the truck (obd2 adaptor)?

That's the one. You can get it in eBay, Amazon, or new egg.
They're pretty cheap, but work like a champ.
I've been using mine for 5 months.

Is the EOT that you are using the stock "Engine Oil Temp" that comes with the App?

No, you have to go to settings in the first window that the app brings you to, then Manage extra PIDs/Sensors.
Once you're in there you can click the button on whichever tablet you have that allowed you to see the "settings" option.. It's usually the one that is a box with lines in it.
In that submenu you can select "Add predefined set" and then select Ford (Incl powerstroke)
That'll give you the correct PIDs that you need.

I'll try to video it later and send you the youtube.
