The GT tuner lets you monitor more than fifteen different parameters so that you can be aware of the function and performance of your Ram 2500 at all times. Set parameters quickly and easily through the Gauge Setup Menu. Note: Not all of the following are available for all applications.
You can monitor up to four parameters at a time, with each displayed along the left side of your screen. To view detailed information about any one of those factors, touch the button next to it, and the large gauge area on the right will display the information for that parameter.
Running the Driving Coach program turns your gauge display into an information hub for tracking your fuel economy. Monitoring the information presented here will give you a good indication of how your driving habits affect your fuel economy and overall engine performance.
The Instant Fuel Economy graph shows real-time fuel usage. This can be displayed in either miles per gallon or kilometers per liter. The Wasted Energy graph shows your acceleration and deceleration in relation to a base centerline. The centerline represents zero wasted energy. If you accelerate or decelerate too quickly, a color bar will extend out from the centerline, so you can see how much energy that move just cost you.
The Report Card graph indicates your overall engine performance and fuel economy, and it ranges from "A" for optimal performance to "Epic Fail," indicating the need for a tune-up, as well as a change in driving habits.
If you're not interested in fuel economy and are really only in this for the extra horsepower and torque, you can remove the Driving Coach from your monitor and instead view a large gauge of any chosen data.
The Triple Dog GT has several features that are unique to Dodge diesel applications. You can, for example, set up your GT to control when the door locks engage and disengage on your Ram 2500. The headlamp delay (the amount of time that the headlights remain on after the engine is turned off) can be adjusted to suit your preferences. Set certain audible or visual notifications, such as the seat belt reminder chime or the chirp emitted when you remotely lock your Ram 2500, as you see fit. And you can limit or extend the amount of time that accessories, such as the radio, stay on after the engine has been turned off. Note: These features may not be available for all models and years.

I would give this an excellent but the power cord had a loose connection on the positive side, it took a while to figure it out with an ohm meter. I went to Radio Shack and bought a power adapter for a cell phone $17, as I was on the road and had no soldering iron. I am amazed that you can get more power and better fuel economy at the same time. I made the same trip with the same load from Florida to Maine with about a five mpg increase and no need to be in the right hand lane going up the mountains. I am impressed!82217
