    Does any one have one? If so how do you like it? Was thinking about getting one but can't seem to find out for sure if it monitors trans temp...

    Got an early Christmas gift from my wife. this thing is fun to play with. She got the one with no trans temp.. but I don't use the truck for towing so no real need anyway. I have a 14 Ram Cummins if I need to haul.. 20171222_133408.jpg

    Had it but in the end I didn’t like not having a detachable cable.

    torque app does allow logging tho, and you can enter the cvs file into google earth/maps and see the info and location.
    The logging alone tho is very nice to have.

    Other than that, I dont recall any real advantage of it............well, theres a knock detector, and the track option lets you merge the video with select gauges in playback. last time I tried tho, my mount was shit and my note 5 was soooo laggy, it didnt sync right.

    Nice gift from the wife.
    You can also get a cheap BLE OBD2 scanner for trans temp and logging if essential.
