I have a vent mount for my phone so it's in the same line of sight as the instrument cluster. My phone connects via bluetooth to the OBD2 reader.
I bought this from Amazon:
Fineed Super Mini ELM327 V1.5 Bluetooth OBD OBD2 OBDII Scan Tool
It plugs into the port under the dash.
I bought this phone app from the Google Play Store:
Torque Pro, $4.95 (Requires Android)
Torque pro is VERY customizable. There are hundreds of gauges you can have on the phone display - 0-60 time, battery voltage, fuel trim, horsepower at the wheels, exhaust gas temp, ... basically anything the truck's computer is tracking.
I set up my phone display to show gauges for Boost/Vacuum, absolute engine load, GPS elevation and Barometric pressure.
