Who is running the Edge Insight for guages?

Currently I just want to run a single pyro guage mainly because I like my a-pillar handle. Ive been trying to compare the cost vs that and the edge insight.

Anyone have input....pros and cons of the insight. Where is the cheapest place to buy them.

You can't loose with 22's..........

The Insight monitors have been great. It is going to cost a little more than a set of gauges, but you can also monitor a lot more with the Insight. You can get a dash mount for it which will allow you to keep your handle. Here are some links, dont forget the EGT probe to monitor EGTs.

I have had mine on for about four months. I love mine. Some say they are not as accurate as standard dial gauges, but for mildly modified trucks I think they are one of the best options out there. The only complaint I really have is sometimes when it is extremely hot in the truck(sun beaming through on the windshield for along time) the display gets a little hard to read. Some how the heat effects the backlight & contrast of the digital display. Not a huge issue for me though.....

Been running the Insight with Pyro for about a month now on my '06. Really like the way it works, easy to install. Lets me watch EGT, EOT, ECT, Trans Temp and there's a whole bunch of other options.

i have the insight with egt probe as well. i too have the same issue with the heat and making the screen fade but after a few minutes its back to normal. i like it more than the pods because you can monitor more truck vitals and it can monitor up to 7 things at once.try havin 7 pods in your truck . plus its waaaaayyyy easier to install then running hoses and wires all over your truck to put pods in. just my opinion though. they both have there pros and cons.

its a great solution, but I still prefer my guages...You dont have to get rid of the handle to have guages either...

ive had mine for a year with no issues. works great and nice to be able to read codes off of it. mine is dash mounted because I still use the grab handle because of my lift

had mine for a about a year. Works good. (did have one issue reprogramming it one day) it blew up and had to be reflashed, but all is fine now. Very informative, lots of options. The one thing I wish it could monitor is fuel pressure. Ford does not have a sensor for this...
