Edge Insight CTS

Does anyone have one of these? It seems like a neat set-up just wondering if anyone had one they use. Also how are the tunes? I pull a 7x14 tandem axle everyday with about 5k in weight all together, and a bobcat about once a week. Is the back up camera worth it? Thanks in advance guys

I love mine! I only use it as a monitor, and use the SCT with custom tunes for tuning. I don't have enough use for a BU camera, so I couldn't say anything about that. PHP does make custom tunes that you can load on the Insight CTS

Use the Insight CTS for data monitoring and use SCT for tuning. There are several custom tuning manufactures out there, otherwise if you buy the SCT SF3 it will come with five preprogrammed tunes. No Edge tuning though on the 6.0L. SCT for tuning!

As for what comes "installed on it" all I'll have to do is just select the toe mode and it'll adjust everything to that?
I have no knowledge as to what a tuner can do, its not a "chip" is it?

Can anyone explain in regular people term whAt all it does!

Thanks Raul, that helps out alot.
Is the CTS jus a moniter? Will I have to buy a edge programmer as well if I wanted to tune it?

yes the CTS is just a monitor.... i dont recommend the edge tuning devices...

i recommend a X3 with custom tunes for a 6.0L...

we have package deals of X3's with CTS insights here:6.0L Tuning + Gauge combo's
