Can the BetterWeigh Monitor Different Functions of Tow Vehicle


Does the Haul Gauge also read and display other OBD II data such as transmission temperature and fuel economy to help identify optimal tow speeds based on trailer load? My vehicle displays both transmission temp and fuel economy so the data is there, but it would be nice to have the app display this data. I was looking at other OBD tools like BlueDrive to display and trend towing transmission temp and fuel economy when I ran across the Haul Gauge.

I do have a solution for you to keep an eye on various stats for your 2008 Chevy Tahoe while you're towing but the BetterWeigh Mobile Tongue Weight and Payload Scale # C51701 is only designed to determine weight ratings for your towing setup and it doesn't have the ability to sense and display anything else.

If you are only wanting to monitor those things then I recommend using the Edge Insight CTS2 # EP84130 which is a monitor system with a touch screen for easy navigation. This product has the ability to monitor different functions like temperature and speeds plus it has a apps and software to help you keep track of your driving habits so you can improve them even while towing. To use both products you will simply plug in the BetterWeigh to verify your weights and then unplug it and plug in the monitor prior to heading down the road.

We also have the Edge Gas Evolution CTS2 Performance Tuner # EP85450 which is basically the same thing as the Insight but it gives you the ability to program different settings for the computer in your Tahoe and even add some extra power. Please note that this performance module is not legal for sale or use on pollution-controlled vehicles in the state of California.
