How are you guys monitoring your CRD's w/aftermarket Gauges, etc

What are you guys using to monitor Boost, EGT's, water temp, oil temp, etc, on your CRD's.

Anybody using Scangauge II?
Is there a gauge pod available?

Any other ideas?
Thanks

Ditto, Torque Pro on Android and an inexpensive bluetooth ODB2 adapter.

I get engine temp and catalyst temp, but no tranny temp. Darn, I wanted that for when towing.

I have been looking at the torque app as well, its very cheap for what it does. Sucks to hear that you dont get tranny temp tho, any of you try out the fuel mileage gauges? How accurate do you think it is if you do use it with the app? Thanks.

Don't have an Android phone. I want something that will be permanent. Like a scangauge, or a dashhawk (but its no longer available), etc, or an A-arm pillar.

I use a bullydog and Edge Insight with expandable accessory system. The bullydog is fine for basic stuff post turbo egt, boost, coolant temp, fuel rail pressure, MAF. But the Edge is nice for adding extra stuff like what I am doing with egt before turbo and fuel pressure before CP3 pump to see if high level tunes are puling to much fuel for the factory fuel pump to keep up with. Also I use AutoEnginuity for data logging and diagnostics.

There is a dual guage pod for the a-pillar available. I've also seen a 3 guage installed replacing the cigar ligter and power port/shelf-thing.
I don't have guages yet, but I'm thinking trans temp, boost, exhuast temp and fuel preasure. (4) guages, hard wired.

Im using dash hawk for voltage, trans temp, engine temp, fuel pressure, egt pre-dpf.

Im using my mecanical boost gage for boost.

Last time ive seen dual gage pilar it was something like 180$. So im just using a cup mounted on the pilar. I would like to see egr pre-turbo ... I think this is the one that matera the most.

I use a Garmin Mechanic. It is a $99.00 blue tooth device that plugs into your computer port and mounts slimly right above the port using double stick tape. It communicates with SOME models of the Garmin Nuvi Gps systems. I keep a Nuvi 2650 (I think) sitting on my dash all the time. When I want to see the engine guages, I just tape the screen a couple of times and up comes 5 guages. I change the guages picking from a short list of things. It does the basic stuff but does not record things for a permanent record.

It is not as thorough as a DashHawk or some of the other offerings. But it does what I wanted. And take up no extra room. The device is about the size of an Apple I-Touch and you don't even notice it right above the computer port. It works automatically every time you crank up.

plus ambient air temp, intake air temp, boost pressure, current gear, target gear etc.

there are lots of parameters, I could not live without a device like this.
