Sct itsx?

Do I buy it? Or go x3 with insight? Where's the best place to buy from? Just thought if I was to do custom tunes innovative was the place to go?

Got the itsx last week use my iPhone to monitor tune etc. it's fantastic I'm very happy i did t get the x3 (although I'm sure the x3 is great). Monitoring is great especially because I don't have gauges yet. Only complaint is sometimes it will not connect to my phone, I have to go in settings, forget device and then pair with it again.

Thanks I am new at this. I saw a sct and insight for 749.00 at mkm diesel I think didn't know if that's a better way to go or if the itsx is the same thing giving both in one. I'm never on a computer just iPad and iPhone figured it was easier

If you want to save a couple of bucks, you can buy a used X-3.
What to look for when buying used SCT for 6.0

If you like the looks of digital gauges/monitor and want to save some cash, take a look at the DashBoss for iOS devices.

The issue with using a SCT device for monitoring is, they won't allow you to watch some key parameters like FICMv or allow you to add a external port for fuel psi. Both of these parameters are important for a 6.0.

Interestingly enough, I must have unpaired my phone with the itsx incorrectly or something because for the past week I have been unable to reconnect to it. Pressing reset has proved useless. Kind of a bother really, there's a major down fall of the tsx, sure it's a trick device, when it's working properly. Hopefully someone from sct will tune in cause I would really like to tweak my tune and monitor temps again.

Turns out all I had to do was power off my phone. Working properly once again =D
