insight or gauges

My first question is the insight as accurate as gauges?
Which is better and for what reasons. I going to buy one but not sure which to get don't want to regret later both options are costly.....Terry

I have the Insight and I like it a lot. It seems fairly accurate and I have heard it is spot on with mechanical gauges.

it mostly comes to what you prefer... i have had both at the same time and i found that the regular analog gauges are easier to read at a glance than the digital numbers

I agree. I have the Insight, and it gives you access to a lot of info with a very simple install. But it is digitial (except for some of the info you can set up a bar graph), and that takes a bit more effort to read that an analog guage.

This is so true. I have actually thought about putting my Gauges back in on the a-pillar, and moving the insight to another location to keep an eye EOT, ECT, etc

But yes, the insight works great!

Just an FYI, Edge told me that they are coming out with the color screen (CS), color touch screen (CTS), insight gauges in the spring/early summer. They look sweet and you can make them look like analog gauges as well. Thought I would let everyone know.
