Scan Gauge 2 Owners

I have a stock 2010 FX4. I was thinking about getting a scangauge 2 to monitor my truck and also have in case I throw a code.

My question is, what do the owners think of them, and can I view my exhaust temp to monitor regens? I am not interested in a programmer.

I have the Scangauge II and I like it. Of course you know it doesn't have the fancy gauges like some of the others, but the price is right. You can monitor EGT, EGA and DFT. If I remember correctly you have to program those in using the X-Gauge commands, which is a little tedious, but work great.

Scroll down to the 6.4 and it will show you what you can program with the X-Gauge:

I had a CEL once and was able to retrieve the code using the Scangauge. You have to go into the Scangauge code reader section to read the codes, they won't automatically pop up.

Out of the X-Gauge codes, which one of the three are the best for monitoring the exhaust for a regeneration? The choices look like: Before Catalyst, After Catalyst, or After DPF.

My understanding is you want to monitor EGT (before catalyst). You can tell when it's in Regen by the EGT temp. I'm sure someone here is more knowledgable then I and can give us a better explanation on which is the best to monitor.

Most codes that show up on AE or my xrt pro don't show on my SCII, I also went into the scan section to check....pre cat egt is most common to watch, but all will jump up when in regen, you can monitor all of them at the same time to get an idea. The farther down the pipe the cooler they get....

I have the SC2 also and I love it. I had the SC1 for years and then upgraded.

I just had my radiator replaced as the dealer said it was leaking. Figured something was wrong couldn't tow the 5er without turning the a/c off and really watching the dash gauge for ect.

I have now installed a ScanGauge II to monitor temps and configured all the xGauges I think I should be watching. DFT, EOT, EGT, EGA TFT are a few. Are there others that would be recommended?

Also trying to find what is normal and acceptable operating ranges for these both under standard driving conditions and towing a 12k 5er.

thanks.
