Edge CS/CTS question

I'm looking at buying a CS or CTS for my 2006 and I'd like to know if you have to turn this unit "ON" before driving the truck and "OFF" when you're done, like the SCT Livewire?

You have to set the device up for recognizing your truck everytime you unplug it from the truck but once it is set up and left plugged in, it will turn on and off with the truck.

No, it will come off and on with the key. It's a much better gauge/display system then the Livewire. I like SCT tuners but the Livewire sucks as far as being used for a gauge display. It's to big and chunky to mount well.

I also don't like Edge tuners but they make probably the best gauge display out there. I'd go with an SCT X3 or SF3 tuner, and get an Edge CS/CTS for a gauge setup.

That's what I just got for my 2005. X3 and a CTS. Just got the tunes from Eric at Innovative put in yesterday, MAN what a difference. It will bark the tires in the first 3 upshifts (1-2, 2-3, 3-4) at 3/4 throttle tip in. That's the most I got on it. May do it in the 4-5 shift. I was pulling out on a highway in traffic today after my girl got her first deer and I mashed it down a little and then got out as soon as I got to 70.

Don't have my CTS yet, it shipped but won't be here till Wednesday so I'm trying not to rod it too hard. I have a bullydog watchdog right now in the meantime (truck came with it).
