Smile Idle Controller

I was looking to buy an Idle controler for my 97'. Ford makes one for the Ambulances and was wondering if its any benifit? In the Manual it says you can adjust the idle manualy and also a charge protection for the batteries.

Anyone have this or something like it?? And if so does it do ya any good?

Thanks!, Mark

hey ive got one...i like it because i can read my RPM's more accurately. Yes you can hit the charge protect button and then it will show a voltage reading on the screen. You have to have the truck in park or neutral with the parking brake on. The truck will rev according to the Voltage requirment...i use that all the time when im jumping people. You can also set the rpms to a constant rpm...good for warm up or a pto if you have one...If you have a pto there is a whole bunch of other things you can do to better control the shaft speed but if you don't all you are really gonna get out of it is charge protect and rpm control...i think the rpm ranges from 1200-2100...i don't really know how to do this but you can create your own presets for where you want the Rpms at when you push the button. Charge protect is pretty constant and you can't really add presest. I like mine always starts a conversation when some one new gets into my truck
