sct livewire or edge insight?

If you could do it again what would you get? I am looking at getting gauges and a tuner for my truck but can not decide if I should get a edge insight and a tuner or just get the sct livewire. I know its a personal preferance, But I would like to hear yall's pro and con's on witch set up.

thanks

Edge Insight is a great device for electronic gauges. I have not used the Livewire, but I did sale my Edge Insight to purchase the SCT Touchscreen X-Treme because I wanted everything in one unit.

I've got the Livewire and its great. The only thing that it won't show on the display is the EOT. Other than that it works well.

Insight just for the reason that the Livewire doesn't show EOT which is one of the most important PIDS to monitor on a 6.0


EDIT: Livewire will show EOT if you download Livelink from the website. I did this on my X3.

Im in the same boat as you im also looking at tuners n gauges... I think im gonna go with livewire because it will be way cheaper than gauges n an x3. Also you can read eot you just have to download the software from sct.

Yes it does read EOT, you need to also dwnld the new dlf file, I'm on my phone so can't post it.
The things I don't like about my livewire, big bulky, no power on/off with ignition, the STUPID cables attach straight out of the bottom piss poor design, blue backlight. Other than that its ok.
