6.4 running xrt pro/now want to monitor

i'm running the xrt pro on default hot and tune it down to mild for towing. i love the mpg gain (can get 19) unloaded on the hwy doing 68 mph (3.73 rear end). i hate the low mpg's when towing on the mild tune (11 mpg). i know it would get better mpg on hot. one time i towed my boat on hot and got 14.5 mpg increasing in elevation; and then got 12 mpg on mild on the trip back home. as you might expect i am real tempted to tow the 5k# rv on hot.

what's the easiest, cheapest, best option for me to monitor parameters. don't want to tow on hot blind.

I had the xrt pro when I first tuned and used an edge evo for a moniter. It doesnt have tons of parameters on it but does have the vital stuff. I have since switched to spartan. If you interested in the edge PM me. Its just sitting in my cabinet taking up space. I also have the mounting pod too

Best option I've seen is the DashDaq from Drewtech.
I think they are $550 new and $300-400 used.
