Edge Insight, CS, or CTS (too many choices)

Which one do you guys recommend? They have a regular insight, a cs, and a cts? Do they all do the same thing regardless of whether it's color or touch screen?

there are some bells and whistles on the new ones but the old insight will do ya just fine. you can usually pick up a used on cheap on here.

Recently finished installing the regular Insight w/ dashpod and EGT probe. Im perfectly happy with it. Got all three items (Insight, Dashpod, and EGT probe for $360). Heres the link to my post:

Edge Insight w/ Dash Pod Installed


I like the CTS, but unless you install it in a hidden location, or pull it from the truck every time you get out, it gives thieves even more reason to break into your truck.

i looked at the cts and cs and went back and forth for awhile.....went with the cs in a pod and put in a egt probe and i love it. the cts is nice looking but a little big for what i wanted and it doesn't fit flush in the pod. you won't go wrong with either but i vote for the cs.

I vote CS to. works great looks good. To me the CTS looks to much like a GPS and thief might think its one.

Cool, thanks for the input guys! I think I'll probably go for the CS then.

I haven't seen any reason to upgrade my old standard Insight. Works great, mounts nice and neatly in the A-pillar. I'll probably just keep that.

Got a CTS and love it. Easy to read, not too big, just right. For me the smaller one would be too small.
