I am looking for a good system monitor for my 2014 Lariat.
I recently purchased an Edge Insight CTS as the Amazon supplier I purchased through claimed compatibility all the way through 2014. Well, that's partly true and mostly a lie. Sure, if you want to monitor RPM or speed or other less-than-helpful PIDs, it will work under a generic model. If you actually try and get it to monitor Ford PID's, the thing won't even turn all the way on when connected. It simply turns off as it tries to load the gauges. I updated through their software (which doesn't support macs
), but no dice. I called Edge, and got no help. The vague CS rep basically suggested to shelve it and hope an update comes out, even after telling me that it would "probably be quite some time" before they have support for 2014
. These trucks have been on the road for months, yet I doubt I see support until at least middle of the year. I can't have my money sit idle that long. It's my fault for not checking into it in more detail, but frustrating all the same.
So does anyone have experience or know of a good system monitor that doesn't require having a lap top hooked up (I can't really watch the laptop while driving and towing)? I'm looking to monitor available EGT's, ECT, soot level/regen status, fuel system status, pull major codes, etc. Does anyone make anything that actually works with a 2014? Thanks!
