Best OBD2 gauge

I am looking to monitor some of the critical readings on the 03 6.0 diesel engine. I have read a lot about different gauges, and wanted to see what you guys think.

Is an OBD2 gauge as good as the physical ones that read things direct?

I would like to take the gauge to different vehicles in the future should I upgrade trucks so are they all universal and easy to move to another vehicle?

I have been looking at the scangauge and wondered if the 2003 6.0 port will even read from it. I read recently on another search here

"The code reader has to be C.A.N. compatible. I ran into the same problem and went to three different people with readers and they wouldnt link to the computer".

2003 6.0, OBD2 problems.

If this is the case I may not be able to get any OBD2 gauge to work.

I have Torque on my android phone and a OBD2 reader that works on my car but did not want to work on this truck.

I have Android devices and use torque app on other obd2 vehicles I have with a Bluetooth obd2 reader. I just had trouble connecting to my 2003 6.0 obd2 port. I wondered if it is obd2 compatible ? If not I may not be able to use any obd2 product. I have read about a C.A.N. scanner that works but they don't sound common.
