edge insight cs or cts?

Which do you have/want and why? Pros and cons of each? Thanks, i'm unsure of which to get. Also anyone know where to get a mount like this and if the cts will fit it? I looked on that website and didnt see them

I have the Edge Insight CS, for a number of reasons. First its an additional tool for me, not a primary gauge. The core things I have to monitor, EGT, and Trans Temp are done with traditional gauges (Fuel and Oil Pressure will be done the same way). The CTS will not fit in that mount. If you like a lot of gauges monitored, you'll want the CTS. If you want to expand it to the back up camera from Edge you'll need the CTS. There's a lot of folks who are very happy with the bigger screen, particularly if its going to be your only set of gauges.

I think the CTS is a touch screen as well.

The CTS will fit that pod but you need a braket the Edge sells for it to adapt to the pod and they also sell the pod right off their site. Personally I like non-touch screens for the fact of a bouncy ride plus trying to use my touch screen equals me pissed off when I try touching a button and I hit the wrong one. So I like hard buttons. I would personally go with the CS. But for the reasons colo_dually stated, you can't go wrong with the CTS. But my vote goes to the CS.

Actually the CTS will mount in there. You just have to buy the adapter.

This thread shows one

I have the CTS and I didn't even consider the CS because I plan on buying a BOYO backup camera soon off of amazon for around 60$. I love it monitors all the vitals and reads dtc's and the backup camera was just a bonus.

Where is everyone mounting their Edge Insight CTS monitors?

I already have a touch screen head unit with a backup cam so I'm leaning towards the cs. They both monitor all the same thing correct? It's 100 more for a bigger and touch screen?
