Am I correct in assuming that you purchased an Edge Insight WITHOUT the EGT probe, AND that you are able to monitor the EGT because that data is available through the OBDII connector and will be displayed on the Edge screen?
It was not clear to me when looking at the Edge products web site so I thought I'd ask someone who has actually had some experience with this on a 6.4L.
The other question I have is about your ability to remove the unit by simply pulling the plug and the monitor and storing them somewhere out of sight. Is this a somewhat seamless process that can be done easily when entering a parking lot to do grocery shopping? What about putting it back in place?
Yes, and Yes...
No probe needed for the 6.4, as all factory ones are read by the monitor, and yes, install was 3 minutes, and I can unplug it and remove the display in 10 secs. All that would show is a strip of Velcro and the small plug to the monitor, which, would hardly be seen next to the A pillar anyways.
I'm still making my way thru the manual and other diesel forums to set up the displays and learn what it can do, but right out of the box I got EGTs, ECT, Tranny temp, Boost, and some others that I don't remember.
