Thinking about a DashDAQ

Opinions?

http://tunertools.com/proddetail.asp?prod=DT-DashDAQ

I was thinking of installing a DashDAQ where the console gauges would be if I got them. The gauges are nice, but the versatility of something like DashDaq would be better I think. ..or maybe something similar, but with a video input to add a backup cam to it as well.

What do you think?

I have one, with a couple of other sensors in line for accel/decel and lateral g's, left and right bank wideband scanners and boost, all hooked up to feed into the dashdaq. Pretty good tool if you are serious about datalogging and the support is good as well.

For years I felt the same way...then I got an iPod as a gift. Now, I'm hopelessly addicted to my iPhone. It would take a small army to wrestle it away from me. I can assure you that Apple is not the devil...this is from a PC-usin', meat eatin', Prius hatin' mofo.

I have had one for about a year. It is a pretty cool and very powerful tool.

You can make the gauges look any way you want, add inputs, add a GPS (I have that option), record parameters and a whole lot more.

A little on the pricy side, but if enough people were interested I could get a group buy together.

Yes. There is a PC application from the same company. You buy the application and the communication cable and can then do everything on the PC and more that you can do on the dash version.

I think the main draw of the DashDaq is its size. It is as big as a nav unit.

Good product, Great people, pricey.

Although not an option today, Edge Products will have a color touch screen of their Insight monitor. This is the next generation of the DashHawk that was sold by MSD. It was created at Edge originally and they have it back.
They just started shipping their first color screen products,http://tuneyourtruck.com/ The Insight in the CTS form will be the first Qtr of next year.
