GAUGES vs MONITOR

Cant decide between gauges or a monitor. was wondering if yall could give me some input on which is better. im looking to the most accurate reading over all. i think that a gauge set up looks sharp but the monitor can give you alot more readings just wondering if anyone has used both or one or the other and can tell me what they think. thanks guys.

if you are looking for an economical priced unit, the edge insight works great! Its a very nice all in one unit that can gauge everything you want or need. Plus the have a nice dash mount that allows you to keep you grab handle, here is one installed in a customer 05 King Ranch:


here is a little bit about what it does: Edge Products: Product

as far as accuracy, in my truck I have the insight and the analog gauges on the pillar, the temps are almost identical on the insight as they are on the analog gauges. Keep in mind, when for hooks up to your OBDII port to diag problems or read temps, these are the same temps you will be able to look at with the Insight.

If you are interested in some prices, let me know.

The way I look at it the analog gauges are simple and work, less to go wrong IMO.
