Best Engine scanner

I am looking to buy an engine scanner to place on the dash so I can monitor temp and any other needed info.
What are the better models out there?
Even if there are ones that are wireless to connect to iPads or tablets I would consider.

Just bought and installed a Banks IQ2 with auto mind programmer. Scan gauge ll is a good alternative from Bulletproof Diesel, order online. Just my .02 cents worth.

I have the Ultragauge and really like it. Larger display than the Scan gauge and a lot less expensive as well.

Just like all the scanners, it reads what the manufacturer provides to the OBDII port.

For less than 50 dollars a OBD dongle and the smartphone app Torque. The dongle sends a WiFi signal to your smart phone that via Torque displays everything the chassis might allows you to see. As a benefit you can also read and clear codes

I have one of these and it does work, but in practice a pain in the butt. You have to set it up each time you want to use it. A dedicated gauge, comes on when the engine starts, does not require any set up (after initial set up) and no battery to charge.

It that a yes or no? I didn't see it listed in the gauges on their website. Maybe I missed it.

It's a yes, if your rig produces it, it's a no if it doesn't. All the scanners are like that.
