X2 for the Edge. Went with the CTS for the larger screen. Just did the revisions last week. Works on all my cars though some don't have all the same gauges (jeep Cherokee and Ford Explorer don't have trans temp like the truck does).

Thanks for chiming in. I was attempting to explain that the scanners only scan and read what the rig sends to the OBDII port. If the rig does not have a tranny temp sensor in the tranny, then no scanner can provide that info.

I found it. It says you need the Ultra Gauge MX version of the product to read the tranny temp. I assume that is what you have since it sounds like you have tranny temp on yours.

No my rig doesn't have a tranny temp sensor in the tranny. You need to research if your rig does or no scanner will provide that gauge. I believe that there are links to sites that provide that rig specific info on the Ultra Gauge site. From the beginning I have said yes it will show tranny temp IF your rig provides that info to the OBDII port.

As mentioned above, even though the scanner can support the parameter you are looking for, the vehicle computer may not support it. The scanner/reader simply sends a request to the computer to return the value of the parameter desired. If the computer does not support ( understand) the request, it fails. A fail could be because the vehicle does not have a sensor for that parameter, or that the parameter is only used by the vehicle computer and not available for export.

Best Engine scanner

I already know my truck has a sensor because I have a worthless Ford dumb gauge which starts moving at 234 degrees. I bought my Scangauge 6 1/2 years ago specifically for the tranny temp and the rest is all a bonus. I am just curious at what else is out there now.

I don't know what vehicle you are referring to that doesn't have a sensor. That would be uncommon for a truck.

I use the torque app and an obd2 Bluetooth dongle. I think I am into it for $20. I have used it on my last 4 vehicles and it works like a charm

I also use Torque for Android. $4.95 for the Pro version, completely customizable. You can set up gauges for any data available on your OBD bus and you can set up alarms to alert you (say your coolant or transmission temp goes above a certain value) so you don't even really have to keep your eye on it all the time. Here's the Play Store listing for the free version:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...owl.torquefree

and the Pro version:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...g.prowl.torque

And this is the OBD2 bluetooth adapter I have (very similar anyway). Only $10!
