monitor question

I had to put a new transmission in my 02 7.3 last week. I am looking in to buy a monitor to watch transmission temp and a few other things. Was looking at the Edge Insight CTS monitor. What will it monitor on the 02 and does anyone with the same year have one and if so how do you like it? I also looked at the bully dog and scan gague along with the edge insight cs. I don't want to be sinking my money into something that want work. Not sure if this makes a difference but I tow a 322qbs 5th wheel by keystone. I'm guessing around 12000 lbs loaded. What all should I be monitoring while towing down the road. Was towing this last week in the mountains when transmission went out. Had 140,000 miles on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am slow learning alot from this site and am thankful to be able to a member here.

I have the Insight CTS with the EGT probe. Works great. It monitors everything the PCM sees, plus the EGT. I use all 8 gauges that I can, still wanting a couple more.

The two biggest things to watch are tranny temp and EGT, especially when towing. The dummy gauge on the dash won't tell you the tranny is over heating until after you burn it up.

drove it to work today it is working. I went wopt and only saw 16 psi of about mabe 1/10 mile. When I did that my oil temp went to about 197 198 degrees is this normal temp? I have heard that tranny temp and oil temp should be within 15 20 degrees of each other but tranny temp was only around 140. Just had the coolant flushed and refilled monday. Just got my egt probe in mail today plain on install sat.

First of all if you got the CTS hooked up under your dash then your only seeing what your computer is showing. If you want to be more precise then you need to add on or stack the probes/sensors to read directly from the (ex) turbo,tranny,egt, etc you get the drift. Now if you truck is modded you should put a AIH delete kit and monitor turbo boost there I also recommend a boost fooler as well if you don't already have one. If your truck is stock then you will only read turbo boost up to like 20 psi then you will de-fuel you will see this on the CTS display. I have one and it work great but the critical things I monitor I bought additional sensors. Good luck and enjoy
