Digital gauges/monitor

Just wondering what everyone is using to monitor their trucks. Im deleted with the sct sf3 so cant use that to monitor. Been looking into the edge insight cs/cts but there $300-$400. Have checked out the bullydog watch dog which is priced cheaper anywhere from $200-$250. But cant find anywhere that states if the bullydog watch dog will monitor egt's on the 6.7 powerstroke which is all im really interested in monitoring. If anyone is running the watch dog or knows if it will monitor egt's could you please chime in. Really wanting to get something to monitor my truck, kinda bothers me not knowing whats going on, or when to let off.

I have a watchdog and it won't monitor jack on these trucks. RPMs and battery voltage are about it. I liked it when I had my EcoBoost and thought it would work well on my 6.7 but I was wrong. I'm using a live wire 5015 and it monitors a lot but not EGTs. Mike at PIP said he would have a plug and play EGT sensor for the 5015 pretty soon. I like the 5015 cause it's always in the truck and switching tunes is a breeze.

The CTS is well worth the money in my book. It does need the additional probe to read EGTs though.

How do you like the cts mounted there? Looked at the mount but kinda want my monitor mounted out of site. Might catch the eyes of thieves mounted right on the dash beside the window. Thats why i was hoping the watch dog would work. Its small snd could place up by rearview mirror or make a mount for center/top of dash

I had a 5015 in my ford raptor and hated it. Touch screen was so finiky, had to turn it off when leaving the truck for anytime or it would kill the battery due to the auto off setting still drew a decent amount of power. The gauges were decent but would never buy one again. If i still had it im sure i would use it but sold it with the old truck. Will buy something different this time around. Looks like its gonna be the edge cs/cts. Kinda leaning towards the cs due to the smaller size and dont really feel the need to monitor a bazillion things at once lol.

I prefer it there and it is easy to see when you really need it. It blends in with the dash and the number of gauges is somewhat customizable. It also has a fair amount of add-ons as well.

The cts is the way to go. Don't go cheap on the guages because you will regret it down the road.

I really love my Dakota Digital gauges, especially at night as it's almost like a heads up display because all you can see is the numbers.
